Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Game 4 was his worst night as a Ranger. Nothing comes close to it. Instead of getting into the Capitals’ heads, Avery allowed the NHL, the officiating and the unforgiving environment in which he works, to get into his. And look at what happened—he was a liability to the only people who will employ him.
Avery needs to breathe deep here. He needs to take a timeout and practice the meditation exercises he learned during his time away this winter. He needs to call a timeout on the anger that built inside of him and led to two reckless plays that nearly wrecked Wednesday’s Game 4 for his teammates.
Because if Avery can’t call a timeout on himself, John Tortorella will have to do it for him. There is, in fact, no excuse not to, for the head coach’s obligation isn’t to Avery, it’s to the Rangers.
