I didn't see the whole game but I did see Avery's first penalty on Haley. It was a boneheaded play and Avery should know the league is sensitive about those types of hits and he knows his reputation that he is going to get called on that.
I think the Sean Avery "era" was over, Game 4 against Washington 2 seasons ago when Torts benched him for taking a penalty in the last minute. Since that time it seems as though Avery stopped playing with the right kind of edge for fear of being a scratch and just became a regular grinder.
When he's on his game, look at the Devils series from the 2008 playoffs, or even the Thrashers and Sabres series from the 2007 playoffs. If we can get that Avery back, and the 2009-2010 Gaborik back we could do some damage
