Update: 9:26AM: In the NY Post, Larry Brooks quotes Henrik Lundqvist as saying:
“Sean is one of a kind when he plays his game,” said Lundqvist, when asked about the Peoples’ Choice. “He brings a lot to the table.
“But management thinks this is the best team possible, so we have to go with that.”
Original Post: At the beginning of the first period there was a banner hanging from MSG saying “Avery 16 Send Torts To The Whale.”
“AVERY IS GONNA HAUNT THEM FOREVER.”
The banner was taken down in the middle of the first period.
Avery is going to make his debut for the Whale tonight.
