Watch: Ilya Kovalchuk’s “Zip Your Lip” Gesture

via our friends at 5-Hole Blog

….My first thought when I saw it was that it was a “Throat Slash” gesture, but upon further review, it was only a “Zip Your Lip” gesture which was confirmed by John Tortorella after the game.
Sean Avery just gets under his skin. Ever since that playoff series against Atlanta. It’s one of the times where I really want to hear what Avery says on the ice to these guys, what pushes Kovy over the top.
