PHILADELPHIA - 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 defenceman Marek Zidlicky opened the scoring at 6:37 of the first period, dancing around Flyers defenceman 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 defenceman 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.
