Devils Shut Out Bruins, 1-0

Before we get into the game recap, let’s just look at the cold hard facts. Starting in net for the Bruins was Tim Thomas, the regular starter and an All-Star. Starting between the pipes for the Devils was not Martin Brodeur (out the last few months with a left elbow injury). In for Brodeur was Scott Clemmensen, who before this season had 19 starts in his entire career.

Thomas faced 18 shots and stopped 17 of them. Clemmensen faced 31 shots…and stopped every single one of them. The result? Well, if you can do math, you’ll easily find that the Devils shut out the B’s 1-0, thanks to a second period goal by Bryce Salvador (just his third of the season).

Patrice Bergeron led the B’s with seven shots on goal, but they could not break through Clemmensen’s wall. The backup goaltender has had a strong season filling in for Brodeur. He’s now 24-11-1 with a 2.23 GAA and a .922 save percentage.

The Bruins will get a chance to redeem themselves Saturday night at 8 p.m. against the Nashville Predators.
