Who knew Devils winger Ryane Clowe was such a slick a play maker? The big winger signed as a free agent this summer has impressed his teammates with his passing including a perfect center pass that led to a Damien Brunner goal tonight against the Flyers. “Zaj and Clowe made two really nice passes. I just went hard to the net and put my stick on the ice” Brunner said of his first goal for the Devils. Coach Pete DeBoer said it shouldn’t be surprising that Clowe has the ability to create chances. “In San Jose he always played with good players. If you’re going to play on the wing with Joe Thornton or Patrick Marleau you have to be able to make a play” DeBoer pointed out. “For a big man he can do that. That’s why he’s good on the power play.” The Clowe-Travis Zajac-Brunner line looks like a winner but DeBoer isn’t sure he’s going to keep it together. “I don’t know yet. We’re trying different combinations” DeBoer said. “It’s going to depend on who we can get back healthy and who we have available to us over the next 4-5 days.” That sounds like Jaromir Jagr might figure into the mix not to mention the fact that Patrik Elias (a scratch tonight for maintenance) has played exceptionally well alongside Brunner. The Devils who lost winger David Clarkson in the offseason like what they see in Clowe. “He’s a good player” Zajac said. “Big strong. He’s got really good hands and he really can make plays. He does a lot of things well. Just the way he plays he’s going to fit in well in our system.” The feeling is mutual.
