Cory Schneider has made a habit of perfection this preseason.

Schneider had not allowed a goal in two appearances entering Tuesday's game against the Flyers and was less than two minutes away from escaping Philadelphia unscathed.

But Kimmo Timonen's power-play goal with 1:31 left in regulation spoiled Schneider's bid for eight straight scoreless periods, and the Devils came away with a 2-1 victory at Wells Fargo Center.

Schneider, whose shutout streak ended at 158:29, finished with 22 saves and was named the game's First Star. He has stopped 70 of 71 shots this preseason.

Mike Sislo's goal gave the Devils (3-2) a 2-0 lead at 7:34 of the third period and held up as the winner.

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.

Timonen's goal cut the Devils lead to 2-1 at 18:29 of the third.

The teams will complete the home-and-home series Thursday night in Newark.
