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

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.
