Sloppy Decisions- NY Rangers beat Dallas 5-2

A former Stars player got revenge against the team who released him. From AP-

Sean Avery exacted revenge on the Dallas Stars a year after they dumped him, scoring a goal and setting up three others in the New York Rangers’ 5-2 victory Wednesday night.Sean Avery

Avery’s stay with the Stars lasted only 23 games into a four-year, $15.5 million contract that he signed before last season after leaving the Rangers. The agitating forward quickly wore out his welcome in Dallas, and was suspended by the NHL in December after making crude comments about his former girlfriends dating other players. He never again played for the Stars, who waived him in February.

Avery was claimed three days later by the Rangers, with whom he finished the season after a minor league stint.


Avery hadn’t had as many as three points in a game since April 1, 2007. Four points matched a career high.

Avery last scored a point in a NHL game on November 23rd.

I didn’t really understand why Avery was released last year. He’s an idiot without a doubt, but he’s small potatoes compared to some of the thugs in the league. Todd Bertuzzi broke another player’s neck and he has no problem finding work. What’s insulting a player’s girlfriend compared to that?
