Good for Avery, setting those dopey troublemakers straight.
I was at the game last night too, and I was sitting behind the Rangers bench (I was wearing my Canada jersey, if you look closely in your pictures, you can see me).
Anyway, just before the shootout, my friend and I were harrassing Avery. We were constantly yelling Avery's line from "The Rocket" (which I won't mention here). Avery was being harrased the entire game by a bunch of Oiler fans in the first row behind the bench, and ignored it for the most part. But just before the shootout, he looked up at us and started yapping... We kept yelling Avery's line from the movie, and Avery just mouthed, "You're ugly..." and "sit down you ****." I flashed my Canada jersey at him and told him I was a Canadian hockey fan, and he just shook his head and yapped some more.
I thought it was comical. Even though it was a "confrontation," I got the sense that it was good fun. In fact, I think that's Avery's entire persona. He doesn't really intend to be bad, he just knows how to play a villain really well, almost like a WWF star. I think that's the one memory I'll take with me, following this game.
