Clemmensen to Start Game Four for Florida

Former New Jersey Devils goaltender Scott Clemmensen will get the opportunity to improve upon his perfect 5-0 record against his old NHL club when he starts Game Four tonight for the Florida Panthers at his old home of the Prudential Center.

"I'll be ready. Thirty-four years old and (making) my first start in the playoffs," Clemmensen said to The Star-Ledger. "I've felt very much a part of this team all year long. I've played pretty much regularly all year long."

The Iowa native and Boston College product will be making his first career Stanley Cup postseason start after backstopping Florida to a come-from-behind 4-3 victory in Game 3 on Tuesday night in Newark to put the Panthers up two games to one in the first-round series.

He relieved Jose Theodore just over six minutes into the contest, with the host Devils up by a 3-0 count. Clemmensen then shut the door and stopped all 19 shots he faced, while his teammates scored three power-play goals, en route to the goaltender's first-ever NHL playoff win.
