Emery shuts out Devils

48 Comments

The Philadelphia Flyers turned some heads by naming Ray Emery Saturday’s starter after Friday’s fight fest, but it paid off.

Sure, he only needed to make 14 saves, but a shutout’s a shutout. Emery stopped the New Jersey Devils’ feeble attempts at offense to help Philly win 1-0.

Brayden Schenn was the game’s only goal scorer. Martin Brodeur allowed one goal on 21 shots.
