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. That Clemmensen even got the Devils a point is a minor miracle because he was all over the place in the third period, giving up three goals on nine shots. 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.

Scott Clemmensen is back with the Devils at training camp after five seasons with the Florida Panthers.

"It doesn't feel strange at all," said Clemmensen. "In a way, it's a situation I look forward to. Ever since I re-signed here in July, I've been looking forward to coming back here and being in the atmosphere that I've grown accustomed to, especially earlier in my career. But, having said that, it, obviously, is a very transitional period for the organization, for the fans especially, being the first year that Marty Brodeur is not on the team. It definitely has a different feeling without him here." His main competition for the backup role in New Jersey is expected to come from Keith Kinkaid, but Scott Wedgewood has an outside chance as well.
