Philadelphia, PA - Brian Boucher stopped 34-of-35 shots and Danny Briere netted the game-winner in the first period as Philadelphia edged New Jersey, 2-1, in the back end of a home-and-home set between these clubs.

James van Riemsdyk also tallied for the Flyers, who won in Newark on Thursday and have taken four of their last five overall.

Philadelphia hits the midway point of its season at 26-10-5 for 57 points.

Andy Greene posted the lone offense for the Devils, who have lost four in a row and 15 of their last 17 since the start of December.

Johan Hedberg started and suffered the loss, pulled after giving up two goals on 10 shots in almost 15 minutes. Martin Brodeur finished the contest by failing to allow a score on 19 shots.

New Jersey fell to 10-29-2 at its own midway point, worst since going 8-30-2 in 1983-84 during an 80-game schedule.
