John continues with some background on "Clemmer":
"Scott Clemmmensen is a success story. After leaving the Devils organization after being the back-up for Martin Brodeur or a starting goaltender with the AHL affiliate since 2000, he signed up in Toronto for the 2007-08 season. He got shelled in the few games he played with the Maple Leafs and then was sent to the minors. At age 31, he re-signed with the Devils understanding the situation that he could end up starting in Lowell. And with Kevin Weekes already signed, he did just that. However, horror struck and Martin Brodeur would be injured for months. Weekes was expected to step in, but Brent Sutter gave both goalies a chance, and Clemmensen won the job. Unlike Toronto, Clemmensen proved that he was up to the task. He ended up playing 40 games with the Devils, putting together a 25-13-1 record with 2 shutouts, a 91.7% save percentage, a 2.31 goals against average before Brodeur returned, and the thanks of Devils fans across the board."
