New Jersey Devils' David Clarkson was trying to 'spark the team' in tussle with New York Rangers' Sean Avery


The Devils may have fallen into a comfort zone, as coach Brent Sutter contends, but right winger David Clarkson was anything but content as Monday night's game slipped away.



Clarkson tried to light a fire by engaging Sean Avery in a fight at 10:12 of the third period. Pulling on Avery's sweater, Clarkson dragged the Rangers' agitator to the ice twice and received a double minor for roughing, as well a 10-minute misconduct penalty. Avery got a roughing minor.

"I was trying to spark the team," Clarkson explained. "He had his one hand cocked back in a fist. Say he throws a punch and hits me. I'm the guy that loses. I was trying to spark the team and ended up getting kicked out."
