NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — John Moore scored 59 seconds into overtime and New Jersey Devils snapped a six-game losing streak with a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night.

Keith Kinkaid made 35 saves in posting his first shutout of the season and helping the Devils win for only the third time in 21 games (3-14-4).

Taylor Hall set up Moore’s fourth-overtime game winner with a cross-ice pass on a 2-1 break with the defenseman beating Steve Mason with a shot from low in the right circle to end a game between two teams ending their seasons this week.

Mason finished with 26 saves for the Flyers, who lost their second straight.

The game was the Flyers first since being eliminated from playoff contention on Sunday, and there was no letdown in their final road game.

Philadelphia outshot New Jersey 28-18 in the first two periods and only Kinkaid kept them off the scoreboard. He made six stops on Shayne Gostisbehere in the opening 40 minutes, had good saves on Brayden Schenn and Jakub Voracek on power-play chances in the second period.

Kinkaid also had some luck as Colin McDonald missed an open net in the first period.

Mason didn’t have as much work but he made two in-close saves on Mike Cammalleri in the second period and barely kept a middle-period wrap-around chance by Stefan Noesen out of the net. A replay showed it inches away from being a goal.

Both teams had chances in the third period with Kinkaid stopping Voracek on a late power-play chance and Mason stopping Cammalleri on a tuck-in chance in the waning seconds.
