New Jersey at Philadelphia

    Sislo scores winner in Devils' 2-1 win over Flyers


    PHILADELPHIA (AP) Mike Sislo scored the winner at 7:34 of the third period in the New Jersey Devils' 2-1 preseason victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

    Devils 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.

    The Flyers got with 2-1 when defenseman Kimmo Timonen scored on the power play at 18:29 of the third period.

    Emery had 17 saves and Cory Schneider stopped 21 shots for New Jersey.

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