Elias, Devils hope to end two-game slide vs. Flyers

Feb 1, 2007 - 4:44 PM New Jersey (30-15-6) at Philadelphia (12-32-6) 7:00 pm EST

PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Patrik Elias and the New Jersey Devils should be glad to be in the City of Brotherly Love.

Elias looks to help the Devils end their two-game skid Thursday when they visit the lowly Philadelphia Flyers.

New Jersey has won each of its four games against the Flyers this season, including two in shootouts, and have not suffered a loss in the series since March 21.

The NHL's worst club, Philadelphia is just 1-7-3 over its last 10 contests and have dropped a franchise-high 11 consecutive games here. The Flyers have not won a home game since a 3-2 triumph over Columbus on November 24.

All-Star goaltender Martin Brodeur surrendered two goals in a shootout as New Jersey fell, 5-4, to the Atlanta Thrashers on Tuesday. Elias scored a second-period power-play goal in the loss and has four points over his previous three games.

Philadelphia also is coming off a 4-3 setback against the Tampa Bay Lighting on Tuesday, when netminder Robert Esche was beaten for two goals in the shootout.
