Connecticut Whale 3, Worcester Sharks 2 (SO)
By Brian Ring
Worcester, MA, October 29, 2011 – The Connecticut Whale defeated the Worcester Sharks, 3-2 in a shootout, Saturday night at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA. Sean Avery provided the shootout winner for Connecticut, who won their fifth straight game. The Whale has earned at least a point in the standings in eight straight contests (6-0-0-2).
The first two periods of game saw no scoring by either team, but a back-and-forth third period would give way to an exciting overtime and shootout.
“They got a big power-play goal to take the lead and then we answered back with one of our own,” said Whale head coach Ken Gernander. “We had pretty good success in the shootout to get the extra point.”
The first period saw little offense, with the Whale outshooting the Sharks by a 9-4 margin. Connecticut was afforded a pair of power-plays within the first half of the frame, but they could not capitalize against Worcester goaltender Tyson Sexs...

Larry Brooks of the New York Post has confirmed that the New York Rangers will be placing forward Sean Avery on re-entry waivers tomorrow. All 29 other teams will have an opportunity to claim Sean over a 24-hour period, but if he clears as expected, he would be eligible to play Thursday against the Anaheim Ducks.
I am very surprised to see Avery being recalled after everything...
We got news late Sunday afternoon that the New York Rangers have plans to place forward Sean Avery, currently in the AHL with the Connecticut Whale, on re-entry waivers sometime today (most likely around noon). It will take 24 hours for Sean to clear through the waiver process, assuming he is not claimed by another team for half price, therefore making him eligible to join the squad...
There only a few more hours until the New York Rangers find out whether or not Sean Avery has been claimed by another team on re-entry waivers. While it has been generally assumed that Avery would go unclaimed, Larry Brooks at the New York Post reports that Islanders' general manager Garth Snow has been quiet concerning his intentions in regards to Avery and whether he will...
As expected, Sean Avery has cleared re-entry waivers, and will be able to join the Rangers during their practice tomorrow. It is unknown if he will be inserted into the lineup, as the Rangers played a complete 60 minutes last night in their 5-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks. The likely candidates to come out of the lineup are Erik Christensen, Wojtek Wolski, and recent call up...
According to Larry Brooks via Twitter (his source was Bommer Esiason and Nick Kypreos), Sean Avery will be placed on re-entry waivers tomorrow. Whether another team is interested in acquiring him is uncertain, but chances are Sather is giving the fans (well half of them anyway according to our polls) what they want.
For the other half of this fan base, all we can hope for now is...
This is a little sad. Looks as though Sean Avery will be put through reentry waivers today, which would allow him to play in the Rangers Thursday night affair when they host the Anaheim Ducks. Has it come to this for New York? The Rangers have had a bad start, at least by the lofty expectations that they head entering the season. They currently sit 3-3-3, but if not for some early...

Agitator Sean Avery cleared waivers Tuesday and was recalled by the New York Rangers.
It is Avery's third stint with the Rangers, who was placed on re-entry waivers and could have been claimed by another team. He also was placed on waivers Oct. 4 - three days before the start of the season - and has said his desire was to return to the Rangers.
Avery, 31, was assigned to...
For all the hullaballoo about Sean Avery descending to the AHL, the Connecticut Whale didn't even get a single home game with him on the roster before he was brought back to the New York Rangers through re-entry waivers. Which has to be the most depressing thing to happen to Hartford since ... well, we simply don't have the time ...
This doesn't mean Sean Avery Hipster...
Sean Avery could rejoin the New York Rangers a lot sooner than expected after being placed on re-entry waivers by the team that has missed his grit early this season.
OK, so he may not have physically been there, but Avery's presence was felt all the same. More »

Here are the highlights about why the Rangers decided to re-call Sean Avery (or at least, put him on re-entry waivers). Will have audio in a few minutes right below this:
Why Avery now?
“Rupper. Rupper has a lot to do with this. We’re concerned about this. So we have to be careful there. Not sure what’s going to happen. There’s a couple other things...
