Flyers Defeat Devils In What Everyone Involved Believes To Be Preseason Game

NEWARK, NJ—In a game that everyone in the stands and on the ice believed to be a tune-up before the NHL's regular season begins, Philadelphia Flyers goalie Ray Emery led his team to a 5-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils Saturday night.

"You can't get too worked up about an exhibition game. Most of the fans left in the middle of the second period anyway."
