Emery to start for Flyers against Devils

NEWARK, N.J. -- Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ray Emery will start against the New Jersey Devils at Prudential Center on Saturday night.

Flyers coach Craig Berube wouldn't reveal his starter during his pregame meeting with the media, but said the coaching staff had a set plan and was going to stick to it.

Emery, who totaled 29 minutes in penalties after leaving his crease to engage in a fight with Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby on Friday, is 0-2-0 with a 5.08 goals-against and .846 save percentage in three games this season.

Emery came in relief of Steve Mason in the second period of a 7-0 loss to the Capitals before was forced to exit the game following his fight with Holtby at 5:31 of the third. He allowed four goals on 15 shots in relief of Mason.

In 10 career games against the Devils, Emery is 5-3-2 with a 2.08 GAA and .928 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
