Newark, N.J. - The New Jersey Devils took the ice tonight for the first time since Tuesday’s win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
The Devils struggled mightily on offense, only posting 14-shots, going 0-5 on the power play, and getting shutout by the team who lost 7-0 the night before.
The Philadelphia Flyers played very physical and pinned the Devils in their own zone for a large portion of the game. Flyers goaltender Ray Emery played very well, stopping all 14-shots he faced.
The Flyers goal came at 14:29 in the first period on a shot from Brayden Schenn that rang off the post and bounced in the net. It initially seemed like it did not go in, but after looking at the replay it was clear it crossed the goal line.
That was all it took for the Flyers as the Devils did not get any goals on the board. The closest they came was a Michael Ryder shot that rang off the post in the third period.
The Devils flew out to Minnesota after tonight’s game to get ready for tomorrow night’s game against the Wild. Cory Schneider was flown out early and will most likely start tomorrow’s game.
1st Star - Ray Emery
2nd Star - Brayden Schenn
3rd Star - Martin Brodeur
