from the New York Rangers,
Avery chatted with (Jimmy) Fallon for several minutes before Fallon surpised the 29-year-old Blueshirts winger by challenging him to an accuracy-shooting contest. Fallon agreed to donate the suit he was wearing to Career Gear, an organization that gives job-interview clothes to the homeless and others trying to get a fresh start in life, if Avery won the shootout.
If Avery lost the shootout, Fallon said Avery would have to put on a Philadelphia Flyers jersey to honor the members of his show’s band, The Roots, who hail from Philadelphia.
Avery accepted the challenge and went on to easily defeat Fallon in the shootout, breaking four of five targets before Fallon had broken his first.
