NEWARK, N.J. - Although the Devils scored two goals to tie the game in the second period, their comeback attempt fell short as they lost to the Philadelphia Flyers 5-3, Tuesday night.
"There was a lot of good five on five inside that game," said Devils Head Coach Lindy Ruff. "I saw a lot of comeback in us, I saw a lot of desperation, there was no quit...we're still in that kind of learn to win and learn how not to lose."
Michael McLeod scored his first career NHL goal to open the scoring for the home team. Miles Wood and Nathan Bastian had the assists.

"It sucks we couldn't get the win, but really happy to get that one out of the way," said McLeod on his first NHL goal. "[It] took longer than I wanted to but you know, happy to finally get that one...Our line is creating energy, winning our battles and creating energy for the next line coming out."
