24. The Rob Ray Rule Brawl

Date: 5/3/1995
Game: NJ Devils vs. Buffalo Sabres
Location: Memorial Auditorium (Buffalo, NY)

Point blank, this fight is nuts, because Rob Ray is almost naked by the time he and Claude Lemieux tangle. You might think that's badass, but it's actually sneaky as hell. Without any jersey or equipment on, there's nothing for Claude Lemieux to grab on to, thus giving Ray the advantage. This fight set a precedent though, soon after the league introduced tie-down straps to keep players jerseys on during fights. This is often regarded as, you guessed it, "Rob Ray Rule."
