Emery, Flyers fight back, bounce back from memorable loss with 1-0 win over Devils

NEWARK, N.J. - After being embarrassed by Washington at home just 24 hours earlier, the Philadelphia Flyers found a way to gut out a win on the road, edging the New Jersey Devils 1-0 on Saturday.

Brayden Schenn deflected an Andrej Meszaros shot past Martin Brodeur in the first period and goaltender Ray Emery made 14 saves, as last-place Philadelphia perhaps authored its most complete effort of the season.

The fight-filled 7-0 loss to the Capitals may have just sparked a lifeless team, as Philadelphia peppered Brodeur, starting his season-high third consecutive game, and dominated long stretches of play. Brodeur finished with 20 saves.

New Jersey came up empty on five power-play opportunities. Emery, who gave up four goals on 15 shots and fought Washington's Braden Holtby a night before, recorded his 15th career shutout.

Quote of the Day

We think that Randy is a very good coach. Our players think that Randy is a very good coach. We think that he's going to get the most out of this group. With the addition of the two assistants, a bit of a different dynamic, we're very comfortable that this is a quality coaching staff that's going to maximize the potential of this team.
