Video: Scott Clemmensen’s Kick Save Denies Martin St. Louis

On a night in which the Florida Panthers allowed six goals to their cross-state rivals, the Tampa Bay Lightning, remarkably it was a stunning save by backup goaltender Scott Clemmensen that highlighted the Panthers’ otherwise woeful evening.

Already down 2-1 midway through the 2nd period of Monday night’s game, the Panthers’ evening was about to get worse as Lightning captain Martin St. Louis blew past defenseman Tom Gilbert and found himself with a clean breakaway to the wary Panther goaltender.

Opting to commit to an early poke check, Clemmensen found himself out of position and left the majority of his net exposed – or so he thought.

With an open net ripe for the taking, St. Louis was stunned as Clemmensen was able to sprawl out and make a last second kick save on what would have given the Bolts a two goal lead.

Although the wheels soon fell off for the Panthers who would eventually go on to lose by a final score of 6-1, Clemmensen’s beautiful save briefly gave the over 15,000 in attendance something to stand up cheer about.
