Miles Wood Starts Line Brawl after Getting Run into Stanchion by Nick Holden

Run a guy into the stanchion and consider yourself a target. Rangers' defenseman Nick Holden learned that lesson the hard way after he tried to decapitate Miles Wood during the Devils 3-2 overtime win over the Rangers.

Wood, clearly offended by the unjust way he was treated him along the boards, chases Holden down and immediately starts pummelling him. Inspired by the old-time hockey, Brendan Smith pairs off with Nick Lappin while Jimmy Vesey tangles with Blake Coleman.

Nothing like a little passion to help renew a cross-state rivalry that has fizzled of late thanks to the ineptitude of the Devils.

Joseph Blandisi scored in overtime to give the Devils the win which was just their second in 14 games (2-10-2).
