New York Rangers pest Sean Avery is among the most hated players in the National Hockey League not only because of the way he plays, but also because of the way he runs his mouth. While he has calmed down in both regards since being acquired by the Rangers last season, he took a verbal shot at Canadiens defenceman Mike Komisarek after Sunday’s game at the Bell centre.
Avery took exception to a hit late in the second period that sent Komisarek to the box for roughing and put the Rangers on the power play to start the third period. After the game, this is what Avery had to say about Komisarek:
"That’s what (Komisarek) does," Avery said. "He’s big, so he doesn’t skate well. He’s got to play physical, or he won’t play in this league."
He’s obviously been watching different games that everyone else, but the next meeting between these teams should be interesting.
