From Mark Herrmann at Newsday,
There is nothing like a little hatred to get a team going in the playoffs, according to Sabres coach Lindy Ruff. In other words, if Sean Avery didn’t exist, they would have had to invent him.
You could say that this was a classic case of an agitator agitating in reverse, although no one did say it after the Sabres beat Avery and the Rangers, 5-2, in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal. Neither side acknowledged that by talking big before the series, Avery might have stirred the Sabres into something bigger.
