Mark your calendar. Today is a special day, as it is the first time in the history of The New Jersey Devils Unofficial Web Site or At the Red Line has reported on news other than the New Jersey Devils.
Nevertheless, this story was just too good to pass up!
I am not a bad person. I dislike Rangers forward Sean Avery – as do most hockey fans. Seeing him play junior-style hockey, while still being a goal scorer makes me sad inside.
I would never wish him harm, but a good hit to put him in his place is something I would endorse whole-heartedly. I have never wished Scott Stevens would come out of retirement more than when I watched Avery dance in front of Martin Brodeur.
Tuesday night, in the Rangers third consecutive loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins, Sean Avery was leveled by a hit from Penguin Georges Laraque, but he remained on the ice. He did complain of pain getting worse after that injury, but the Rangers would not confirm that it was Laraque’s hit that caused the injury.
Nevertheless, Sean Avery was admitted to the hospital with a lacerated spleen and some minor internal bleeding. In no way was his injury life threatening; he was able to check himself in to the hospital on two feet.
Therefore, that lesson my mother taught me when I was young, “What goes around comes around,” could never be more aptly applied. Who knew Karma does in fact exist.
