Avery Fronts Brodeur

While the Rangers were on a 5 on 3 advantage, Avery faced Brodeur and tried a new ‘screening’ method by facing Avery and following his every move.  Also was waving his stick in his face.

Avery scored on the next rush, with the Rangers taking a 2-1 lead late in the 2nd period.

Update 1:15am ET April 14—From the Daily News:

Brodeur and Devils coach Brent Sutter said the refs had told them that future shenanigans from Avery would be penalized, even though they knew of no specific rule being violated.

“Nobody should have to play hockey with a stick an inch from your face,” Brodeur said. “But it wasn’t a bad play. While he was doing it, I couldn’t see anything. The two misses were just luck, I couldn’t see a thing.”
