Devils' Miles Wood: Sitting out Sunday

Wood will miss Sunday's contest due to an upper-body injury and is considered day-to-day, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Wood saw nearly his normal allotment of ice time prior to exiting Friday's contest, but it will keep him out of at least one additional tilt Sunday. With Nick Lappin also out due to some bumps and bruises, the club will be forced to roll with seven defensemen against the Blue Jackets, while Wood will aim to rejoin the lineup Tuesday against the Rangers.
