Scott Clemmensen hasn't been discouraged by the fact that he's spent the last couple of months in the minors.

"I'm having fun," Clemmensen said. "Obviously, I'm late in my career here. I would rather be in the NHL. Everybody wants to be in the NHL and further their career as long as they can, but the situation being as it is, it's very rewarding for me. I get to be around these young guys. I get to work with (Albany goalie coach) Johan Hedberg, a guy I really admired as a player myself. I get to work with him every day as well as Scott Wedgewood and Maxime Clermont, too. They're younger goalies who are great guys and good goalies. It's been very rewarding for me." It helps that Clemmensen lives close enough to Albany that he's able to stay at home and, as he pointed out, he's still getting paid to play hockey.

Scott Clemmensen gave up four goals on 37 shots in the Devils’ 5-4 shootout loss to the Flames on Saturday night.

Clemmensen was making his first start of the season, as it gave Cory Schneider a night off after making 20 straight.

Calgary was down 4-2, and scored twice — with 2:22 left and five seconds remaining to force overtime. Clemmensen has a 4.71 goals-against average and .852 save percentage this season.
