Zubrus put New Jersey ahead 3-2 late in the second period and iced the game with an empty-net goal in the final minute.

Petr Sykora and Marek Zidlicky also scored for the Devils, who can advance to their first conference final since 2003 with a win in Philadelphia on Tuesday night. New Jersey has never lost a playoff series after taking a 3-1 lead.

In winning their third straight, the Devils let goalie Martin Brodeur have an easy night on his 40th birthday, outshooting Philadelphia 43-22. He even picked up an assist on Zubrus’ final goal.

 

Scott Hartnell and Claude Giroux scored first-period goals for the Flyers, who once again were a step slow.
