from Rich Chere of the Star-Ledger,
Martin Brodeur was activated by the Devils Wednesday morning and fellow goalie Scott Clemmensen was sent back to Lowell (AHL).
The move sets up the scenario for Brodeur to start Thursday night’s game against the Colorado Avalanche at the Prudential Center. Were the Devils not planning to start Brodeur, there would’ve been no reason to demote Clemmensen.
“It’s the best of all worlds, other than (for) Scotty,” GM Lou Lamoriello said as practice was beginning Wednesday morning. “You always have to make the best decision for the organization.”
Clemmensen, who was with the Devils the past four months under emergency recall, did not have to clear waivers. Kevin Weekes would’ve had to clear waivers.
