But the Devils overcame a flurry with Bryzgalov on the bench.
Later in the frame, the Devils appeared to catch a break with the Flyers on a power play as no whistle blew when Dainius Zubrus knocked down Giroux at the point. The non-call led to an odd-man rush, and Kovalchuk wound up scoring New Jersey's NHL-leading 12th short-handed goal with 57 seconds remaining.
To make matters worse for Philadelphia, Scott Hartnell took a high-sticking penalty just as Zubrus scored, and Devils captain Zach Parise banged home his own rebound for a power-play goal 38 seconds into the second period.
Boston, MA (Sportsbook Betting Lines) - Marc-Andre Fleury made 28 saves as the Pittsburgh Penguins edged the Boston Bruins, 2-1, at TD Garden. Evgeni Malkin and Matt Cooke tallied goals for the Penguins, winners in nine of their last 10 games.
Boston's Rich Peverley was whistled for a slashing penalty with 44 seconds left in the first period and the Penguins, who were held to just three shots up until that point, capitalized.
The Bruins failed to convert on a four-minute power play for a high sticking double minor in a scoreless second period, and the Penguins added to their lead 1:53 into the third.
That goal would deem necessary as Corvo floated a wrister from the right point that sailed into the net through a screen at the 6:45 mark. Fleury, though, closed the door from there, stopping eight shots in the period en route to Pittsburgh's fourth straight victory over the Bruins in Boston.

Kurt Warner to start, Matt Leinart to watch
Despite the debate that's swirling , Kurt Warner will remain the starting quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, coach Dennis Green said today. The Arizona Cardinals are the +7 point underdog at online sportsbook MySportsbook.com for this Sunday's game.
Green's comment came in a statement released by the team following an ESPN report that Green decided that rookie Matt Leinart would replace Warner as starter for Sunday's game at Atlanta.
"Generally talking about the starting lineup is not something we do," Green told the AP. "However, given the speculation that was out there we want to make it clear. We're disappointed after last week, but we still expect to be a playoff football team and we fully expect Kurt Warner to be the quarterback that leads us. That has not changed."
