The New Jersey Devils wore their throw-back uniforms but couldn't revive those old winning ways Tuesday night against the Boston Bruins. They lost their third straight 4-2 on home ice, and at least one Devils player took it literally on the chin.
Late in the first period, Ryan Clowe got frisky and slugged it out with Milan Lucic. The two respected brawlers battled evenly until Clowe took one to the jaw.
So much for inspiring the team.
