The most underrated candidate to become the Flyers' next head coach has never had an NHL team finish better than third in its division, has coached in the postseason once over his seven years in the league, and was fired on the day after Christmas. At first glance, Peter DeBoer's resumé doesn't seem worthy of a spot near the top of the stack on Ron Hextall's desk, as if DeBoer were a second-class contender compared to the bigger names who have or might yet become available: Mike Babcock, Claude Julien, Todd McLellan.

Ryan Murphy picked up a rebound at the bottom of the right circle and sent it to the front of the net. The puck caromed off Phantoms goaltender Martin Houle and went in for the game-winner with 58.8 seconds remaining.

Score: Devils 4, Flyers 1 What happened: The Devils, dismissed around here as likely sweep victims, dominated the Flyers over the final 50 minutes. They scored an unlikely four goals in the third period. What it means: Game 1 gets all the attention but Game 2 often helps determine a series. If the Flyers had won, they would have enjoyed a 2-0 series lead and would be halfway to advancing. At 1-1, the Devils have life, home-ice advantage and a strut in their step. Series on, folks.

Martin Brodeur stopped 30 shots for his first shutout of the season and the record 117th of his NHL career, and the New Jersey Devils beat the Eastern Conference-leading New York Rangers, 1-0, on Tuesday night for their fifth consecutive win. David Clarkson gave him all the offense he needed with a first-period, power-play goal.
