So here’s the latest from an MSG Network spokesman about last night’s altercation between Sean Avery and John Giannone in between the first and second periods:
“There was a verbal exchange between the two last night. It’s over and we won’t have further comment.”
Not exactly riveting stuff, I know, and it doesn’t sound like much more is going to come out of it. According to the NHL, since there wasn’t a physical encounter (although I’m told the two did get in each other’s face), Avery is not likely to be disciplined.
