I guarantee you you'll see about 30 or 40 weak calls against Avery this season... I'm not sticking up for him either when I say that...
I'm saying the guy has a reputation and the Refs will watch him when he's on the ice. Not only will he not get the benefit of the call most of the time, if the Ref even thinks he sees a penalty with him, he'll get the call.
AM said it best, the more ice time a guy like Avery gets, the smarter he has to play. I didn't see a very smart guy out there tonite. The only smart play he made all night was on the first goal.... Aside from that, he failed to get under anyone's skin and he put the Kings at a disadvantage numerous times...
The Kings did well just to overcome the hole Avery kept putting them in.
