Ryane Clowe found the back of the net in New Jersey's 3-2 shootout loss on Thursday.

Ryane Clowe faced his former San Jose Shark teammates for the first time on Sunday.

The Sharks dealt Clowe to the Rangers last season after almost eight seasons in San Jose and he left New York for New Jersey in the off-season as an unrestricted free agent. "It was just a weird game when you're playing your former team and the guys you're used to on that side," Clowe said. "Seeing everyone, the coaches and all the guys that you grew up with, it was just different, but it was fine after the first few shifts. It would have been a [heck] of a lot nicer if we got the win." Clowe has missed a lot of the season with a concussion and has five goals and 16 points in 30 games with six points on the power play.

Ryane Clowe is suffering from "general soreness" after Wednesday's practice, so he didn't skate on Thursday.

"Pretty natural for the first day back," coach Pete DeBoer said. "Nothing I'm worried about. Just not going to take any chances with things. You always deal with these things coming back off a break like we had." We'll leave Clowe as active for now.

Ryane Clowe wants to see the Devils start playing with a little more desperation.

New Jersey has just 28 games left on its schedule and while they're still very much in the race for a playoff spot, they're stuck in a pack of six teams gunning for one Wild Card spot. The Devils need to get hot to break out of that logjam, but lately they've been merely okay. On Tuesday they weren't even that as they suffered a 3-0 defeat to St. Louis.

Ryane Clowe has been hot recently with points in six of his last seven games.

Ryane Clowe registered two points in New Jersey's 3-2 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday night.

Clowe picked up a goal and an assist. He's only played 18 games this season due to a concussion, but that has made him overlooked thus far, as he's been very valuable when in the lineup. He has points in six of his last seven games. The rugged winger has recorded two goals, 11 points and 17 penalty minutes on the season and will be a nice source of points and penalty minutes the rest of the way. Jaromir Jagr potted the other goal. Michael Ryder, Eric Gelinas and Andy Greene had the assists.
