PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dainus Zubrus scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and Michael Cammalleri had two goals, leading the New Jersey Devils to a season-opening 6-4 win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night.
Michael Ryder, Adam Henrique, and Patrick Elias also scored for the Devils.
Claude Giroux had a goal and Wayne Simmonds scored twice to help the Flyers rally from a 3-0 deficit. Vincent Lecavalier also scored for the Flyers, who lost 2-1 in their season opener Wednesday night against Boston.
The Devils won the first of a four-game road trip, the second-longest stretch to start a season in team history.
Cory Schneider won his first game in goal since taking over full-time for Martin Brodeur and signing a $42 million, seven-year contract in the summer.
