Flyers still seeking first win of season

Philadelphia (0-3-3) at New Jersey (5-1-0) 7:00 p.m. EDT

NEWARK, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The Philadelphia Flyers have yet

to earn a win this season. An end to their losing streak

appears nowhere in sight.

The Flyers try to break into the win column on Friday when they

visit the New Jersey Devils in the first game of a home-and-home

series.

Philadelphia is the only team in the NHL without a win in the

new campaign and is coming off a pair of losses to the San Jose

Sharks.

After dropping an overtime decision on Saturday, Philadelphia

saw a six-goal outburst go to waste as former Flyer Jeremy

Roenick scored in the second round of the shootout to net the

Sharks a 7-6 triumph and complete a rare cross-country,

home-and-home sweep on Wednesday.

The Flyers have been outshot, 114-64, in the last three contests

and have surrendered a league-high 29 goals already this season.

"You can't point the finger at anyone," Philadelphia right wing

Joffrey Lupul said. "It's forwards, defense, goalies, everyone.

It's all of our jobs to get better."

The Devils' campaign has been in direct contrast to the Flyers'

dismal start.

Martin Brodeur made 21 saves and John Madden scored twice in a

72-second span in the second period as New Jersey cruised to a

5-0 victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday.

With the win and shutout, the four-time Vezina Trophy winner

Brodeur now trails Hall of Famers Terry Sawchuk (103 shutouts)

by five and Patrick Roy (551 victories) by eight for first place

on the all-time lists.
