- The only goal of the game came on a shot by Braden Schenn in the first period.
- Martin Brodeur turned in yet another strong effort in net for New Jersey, allowing only one goal on 22 shots.
- The Devils offense seemed out of synch for most of the night, as they were unable to generate enough shots to solve Ray Emery. With both Patrik Elias and Travis Zajac out of the lineup, the reshuffled lines were unable to find any continuity.
- The team also failed to convert on five power play attempts, including two in the third period with a chance to tie the game.
One night after the Flyers were embarrassed at home in a 7-0 loss to the Washington Capitals, they exacted their revenge on the Devils with a 1-0 win at Prudential Center.
A Brayden Schenn redirection in the first period provided all the scoring, as the Devils failed to record a point for the first time at home this season.
Obviously Zajac, Clowe, Elias, those type of guys being out of your lineup [doesn't] help, but we've got to find a way with the group we have out there to get the job done," said Pete DeBoer. "You can't win if you don't get a goal. Between our power play and our 5-on-5 we had some opportunities, we hit a couple posts. We've got to be opportunistic and finish some of those off."
It was a frustrating night for the Devils, as they managed only three shots in the third period, when any chance could have knotted the game up.
The bright spot for the night was Martin Brodeur, who stopped 20 of 21 shots. Brodeur has given up a combined five goals over his last three starts, after Cory Schneider went down with an injury.
The veteran netminder did well to keep the Devils in the game, but without much sustained pressure in the offensive zone, the Devils failed to beat Ray Emery. Their best chance came late in the third period when Michael Ryder hit a post with under a minute to go in the third period.
"I think because of the way these guys played last night, they really played a careful game, they didn't give us anything," said Martin Brodeur. "You have to give them credit, they didn't give us much room out there to try to get going on offense and our power play couldn't make a difference today."
The Flyers hounded the Devils at neutral ice and prevented them from establishing much of a forecheck. The power play was kept in check, after they failed to generate many shots even with the man-advantage. The Flyers got the early lead and to their credit, they seemed determined to hold it. They sat back defensively and challenged the Devils whenever they entered the Philadelphia zone.
"It's a good thing we turn right around and play in the next 24 hours," said Stephen Gionta." [There's] not much time to think about this one, put it behind us and worry about [Sunday].
Saturday night's shutout loss wasn't the kind of effort that they had hoped for. With a big road contest on Sunday, they can right the ship with a strong performance in Minnesota and quickly put the home loss in the rear view mirror.
