Andrew Gross at Rangers Rants has this quote from John Tortorella after Sean Avery's break out performance last night...

"Sean played better," Tortorella said. "You could see right away his legs were going. He was pressuring the puck."

...he played better?!?!?!? The guy had a sick goal, was a +2 and drew two penalties. I'm pretty sure that's a lot more than playing better. Besides the G.A.S. line Avery was the best forward on the ice for the Rangers last night.

...i was happy to see Torts get Avery on Richards wing as well as double digit ice time. Maybe he's coming around. Doubtful.

In a humorous moment after Avery's goal, he totally punches Jeff Woywitka in the face during his celebration (11 second mark)...



Here's a pic of the punch...


...man, Avery's always got to sucker punch someone, even if it's his own teammate. lol

...h/t to reader Steve for pointing this out.
