EAST RUTHERFORD, New Jersey (Ticker) -- For the Philadelphia Flyers, there's no place like the road.

The Flyers look to continue their success on a franchise-record, 11-game road trip Monday when they visit the rival New Jersey Devils.

On the first eight games of the trek, the Flyers have gone 7-0-1 to extend their streak to 14 consecutive road games in which they have managed to get at least one point.

The franchise record is 16 straight with a point, set in 1979-80.

Philadelphia's latest triumph came Friday with a 3-1 win against Washington behind a goal and an assist from both Peter Forsberg and Simon Gagne. Mike Rathje added a shorthanded tally for the Flyers, who got 23 saves from Antero Niittymaki.

The rookie goaltender has started every game on the road trip in placed of the injured Robert Esche and has posted a 16-4-4 record this season.

Niittymaki hopes to keep his success going against a Devils team that has scored more than three goals only twice in their last 20 games.

However, New Jersey has won three straight following Saturday's 3-2 triumph vs. Buffalo in which defenseman Brian Rafalski had a goal and an assist and Jamie Langenbrunner and Scott Gomez also tallied.

Martin Brodeur made 26 saves to pick up his third straight win for the Devils, who are 3-0 in January after going 4-8-3 in December.

New Jersey has dropped both meetings with Philadelphia this season - both on the road - including a 2-1 setback in the last matchup on November 30.
