Flyers Razor Sharp in Opener,

RALEIGH, N.C. _ Ray "Razor" Emery had a shutout in his Flyers debut, Jeff Carter and Mike Richards each scored power-play goals, and the penalty-killing units were 8 for 8.
For the Flyers, it all added up to an impressive 2-0 win at Carolina in their season opener Friday.
There were plenty of positives:
** Emery made 28 saves and became the fourth Flyer in their 42-year history to start the season with a shutout.
** Defenseman Chris Pronger was as good as advertised, playing a game-high 27:41 and sparking the penalty-killing unit.
** The power play, ineffective in the preseason, was 2 for 5.
** Rookie James van Riemsdyk had an assist and played well in his NHL debut.
** Kimmo Timonen blocked a game-high four shots.
The only negative: The Flyers committed 11 penalties for 25 minutes.
But Emery and the PK, which was aided by newcomers Blair Betts and Ian Laperriere, bailed them out.
