Mike Sislo scored what proved to be the game-winner at 7:34 of the third period and Cory Schneider made 22 saves in the New Jersey Devils' 2-1 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night.
Devils defenseman Marek Zidlicky opened the scoring at 6:37 of the first period, dancing around Flyers defenseman Erik Gustafsson and evading goalie Ray Emery before backhanding the puck in from behind the goal line. Sislo scored a similar goal when he beat Andrej Meszaros and beat Emery low on his stick side.
The Flyers got within 2-1 when defenseman Kimmo Timonen scored on the power play at 18:29 of the third period, ending Schneider's preseason scoreless streak at 158:22.
"What do you say?" Devils coach Pete DeBoer asked. "Just solid, confident and he gives our team that feeling when he's in there."
