Ray Emery, locked in a goalie duel with Steve Mason for the Flyers' starting job, tried to make an impression on coach Peter Laviolette on Tuesday night against the New Jersey Devils.
Emery made 17 saves and, except for getting caught out of position on the Devils' first goal, played well in the Flyers' 2-1 loss.
Emery was sharp early, making six saves while the Devils were on overlapping power plays.
Before the game, Laviolette said the final three exhibitions would play a huge role in determining the starter for the Oct. 2 season opener against Toronto.
"You want to know who pushes for ice time. Goaltending is no different," he said.
