"Tortorella has talked a lot about Avery being an effective player for the Rangers when he's not getting caught up in all the hoopla he causes by stirring things up in front of the net.
He stayed disciplined and was effective in Games 1 and 2, but lost his cool in Game 3. Tortorella said he and Avery discussed the matter Tuesday morning."
....i have to disagree with Rosen here. Avery IS an effective player when he's stirring things up in front of the net. He's not a goal scorer, so going hard to the net and mixing things up is the way he contributes to this team. And he does it very effectively.
...when Avery gets into trouble is when he starts getting frustrated (mostly by the refs ignoring blantant penalties on him) and he starts taking stupid penalties of his own.
