NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -Scott Clemmensen made 27 saves in regulation and overtime, and allowed only one goal in five shootout attempts in the New Jersey Devils' 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday.
Clemmensen, filling in while All-Star Martin Brodeur recovers from elbow surgery, improved to 11-3-1 and 2-1 in shootout this season.
Travis Zajac ended the shootout, sliding the puck past Antero Niittymaki on the Devils' fifth attempt - after Clemmensen made his third straight save.
Jamie Langenbrunner also scored in the shootout for New Jersey, and Mike Richard had Philadelphia's lone successful attempt in the tiebreaker. Patrik Elias and Brian Rolston scored second-period goals to give New Jersey a 2-0 lead. Jeff Carter - with his 25th of the season - and Joffrey Lupul countered for Philadelphia.
