And it does seem like he's out there a lot more, as he's generally doing something noticeable on each shift. IMO at least.
Like going offsides?

To Sean Avery, offsides is something only players not named Sean Avery have to worry about. Clearly Sean Avery is immune to this rule.*

*-YMMV, Refs may beg to differ.

Avery also drew 2 minors last night. He made the most of those 8 minutes to say the least...

I thought Avery should have played more last night. He seemed to have pretty fresh legs.

Man Drury sure is bland and uninspiring. Did you see him after that Stepan goal? Dude looked like he was at a funeral.

I think Torts is managing Avery spot on. Just right if you ask me.

Too much and he either gets hurt or takes too many penalties.

Right now he is contributing in the right areas.

He's like the hot pepper in a bowl of pasta: enough spice to keep it interesting, but too much and you can't taste the sauce!

Couldn't agree more. It is kind of reflected in the stats though, as Avery is 2nd on the team in assists behind Girardi. Great win. Garden was electric in the 3rd and OT. Prus goal illustrated what this team is all about. Never quits.

Thoughts:

1. This team is VERY easy to root for. It's like the man behind the curtian took prior incarnations of the Rangers and gave them a heart. It always seemed like the fans cared more than the players...but not this year.

2. Chanting "Henrik" after the first two goals was just mean. Understandable and if I was there I would have felt like chanting it as well...but still mean.

3. Did anyone who watched the telecast think Mariano was a little tipsy during the interview? I did. 'It's haaaaaard'. I'm a Yankee fan, I've seen hundreds of Mariano interviews...his English isn't that bad.

4. LOVED how Avery, Drury and Stepan all attacked the net after the face off win on Stepan's goal. That's what's been missing in prior years.

5. Didn't you used to be Marian Gaborik?

6. Get ready for those 'can the Rangers win the Stanley Cup this year?' threads. Always comes after a small winning streak. To be followed by the 'this team needs to be disbanded' threads after a small losing streak.

7. 'In Torts we trust' again? Or too soon?

8. Something wrong with my newspaper this morning. It actually said the Islanders won. AS IF...

9. How many people wanted big Valley back halfway through the first period? Tell the truth.

10. Give me more Brandon Prusts. Please.

11. Wow Christensen has quick hands.

12. Anyone see the hit PK Subban put on Marchand last night? Tremendous open ice hit not unlike when Staal rocked Matt Stajan. Everybody on the Hockey Night in Canada telecast liked it except for Mike Milbury of course.

13. Not a big fan of forwards at the power play point in general, and having a rookie there in particular. There are exceptions to this (Matt Cullen), but please keep d-men on the point.

14. Nice of Jason Larbarbera to give us an early Christmas gift.

15. Let's go to Philly and beat the Cliff Lee out of them!

Tell me how you really feel...

Seriously though this team is easy to root for. But I don't like how even though we are winning big games, people still find something to complain about, in this case Gaborik. He is an elite goal scorer and will score again, don't you guys worry.

My thought was WTF was Avery doing exactly during the Stepan goal? Looked like he was trying to screen the goalie with his hand again.

I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but did anyone else notice the subtle but most impressive deke of the night from EC to keep the puck from being poked away on the shoot-out goal?

I know it was LaBarbara and he prolly telegraphed it a little, but EC made that look so simple at the speed he was going.

Not a big fan of his, but I thought that was a pretty little move right there.

As for Avery, he was tied up when he went to the net and had his hands raised as if to intimate to the refs that he was innocent of any wrong doing. Seemed like he may have been directed towards the goalie by the defender and wanted to make sure that there was no penalty on his part as he was doing nothing wrong.

Loved that three of our smallest forwards were ALL standing in front of the net creating all sorts of havoc.

A very nice picture.

imho it was warranted...Biron didnt look like he was focused at all...on the first goal it took a weird bounce, and it looked like he just took a gentle stroll back into his net instead of busting his butt to get back in. he could have EASILY stopped the goal if he tried harder to get into the net. on the 2nd one, it was a slight deflection but he should have had it...he saw it all the way and he didnt even react to the deflection.

biron was AWFUL to start the game, and if i was coaching i woulda pulled him them and there because the focus just did not appear to be there. but he did battle through it and came up with some big saves later in the game, so good for him.

The Rangers have had their share of enigmas, but EC has to be in the hierarchy.

The guy has so much skill, but you just never know when or where it will show itself. The shoot out seems to be a good place to start.

I don't raise the volume, but I'll watch the reruns of the game. MSG only plays them about 40 times the day after the game.

Drury is looking solid. Driving to the net, blocking shots, he's getting back into the groove of things. This is a big boost for the team, both on and off the ice. I only saw parts of the game though, who was he playing with most of the night?

Cheers
