Avery “Accidently” Hits Boston Goalie Tim Thomas

Over the weekend, New York Ranger Sean Avery somewhat reverted to his old ways, when he “tapped” Boston Goalie Tim Thomas in the head with his stick during a break in play

Needless to say the event caused a huge ruckus, and it ultimately resulted in a 4 on 4 situation between the two teams (which were at that point in the game tied 0-0).  To see the clip of the incident, view the bottom of this post…

Now don’t get me wrong… I’m not one of those people that thinks that Sean Avery should be hung from the rafters by his toe nails (these people are out there though).  I actually think this was pretty funny, and pretty typical Sean Avery.  He riled Tim Thomas up something major, and there was every bit the possibility that Thomas would be enough off of his game because of the incident, that the Rangers could have won the game.

While the NYR didn’t get the win, Avery (at the very least) made a mind-numbingly boring game worth watching.  If these two teams face off in the first round of the playoffs (as the current standings suggest they may), Avery’s “tap” to Thomas’ head (intended or unintended), just made this playoff series worth watching… and in all likelihood, more exciting.

So while Avery seems to be back to being Avery, he’s ultimately doing things on the ice, that will create more action and drama… on the ice.  What more could you ask for as a hockey fan?

    Avery seems to be a goalie hater. I wonder why he dislikes goaltenders. Maybe because they carry a bigger stick. You have to love the anger management classes. http://www.chicshockey.com
