Flyers 2, Devils 1
New Jersey Devils 1, Philadelphia Flyers 2
Brodeur makes save on Jeff Carter in Saturday's action. He stopped 19 of 19.
James van Riemsdyk and Danny Briere each scored, and Brian Boucher stopped 34 shots to lead the Philadelphia Flyers to a 2-1 win over the New Jersey Devils on Saturday.

The Devils lost a day after trading captain Jamie Langenbrunner to Dallas.

Martin Brodeur replaced Johan Hedberg in the first period. Hedberg allowed two goals on 10 shots and was pulled.

Devils defenseman Andy Greene’s shot deflected off Flyers defenseman Ville Leino’s skate and soared over Boucher’s right shoulder to make it 2-1 midway through the second.

Boucher stopped and smothered Dainius Zubrus’ hard-charging breakaway with 15 seconds left.

Boucher was perfect after the second—nearly as flawless as Brodeur in his return.

Brodeur, the NHL’s career wins leader, has five this season and was demoted to Hedberg’s backup for the last two games. His spot on the bench for the third straight game didn’t last long.

On a 4-on-4 shift, Van Riemsdyk beat Hedberg from the left circle for his 10th goal of the season and a 1-0 lead. Briere, making a strong case to be named to the All-Star team with 21 goals, scored a power-play goal with 5:19 left in the first to make it 2-0 and send Hedberg to the bench.

Hedberg allowed two goals on 10 shots. Brodeur settled the situation, stopping all eight shots in the second period.

The Devils haven’t won a road game since Nov. 3 in Chicago.

Notes
The Devils have dropped 11 in a row on the road. They lost 12 straight road games Oct. 19-Dec. 1, 1983.
