PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 4 (UPI) -- Kurtis Foster netted a pair of power-play goals Saturday and the New Jersey Devils hung on for a 6-4 win over Philadelphia after building a 6-goal lead.

Foster added an assist for a 3-point game while Alexei Ponikarovsky and Danius Zubrus each notched a goal and an assist for the Devils.

Zach Parise also scored in the victory.

Johan Hedberg made 17 saves through the first two periods but then surrendered 4 goals on 24 shots in the final frame.

Wayne Simmonds, Jaromir Jagr, Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek all tallied in the third period for Philadelphia, but it wasn't enough to overcome a 6-0 deficit.

Sergei Bobrovsky started in net for the Flyers but was pulled early in the second period after yielding 6 goals on 23 shots. Ilya Bryzgalov relieved and turned aside all eight shots he saw the rest of the way.
