Once again it pains me to give the win to that little barf bag Avery but it might have been that Carcillo had sore knuckles from his earlier bout with Gaborik. The Flyers were after Avery all game and they almost fought again at the final buzzer. Avery wanted to go with Richards.
The first, and I sure hope the last, time I was for Avery. After the Gaborik deal, how could one not? Most tough guys, and I've seen Boogaard do this a few times, won't seriously engage a smallish, non-fighter-Boogie just kind of holds them at arms length and awaits the return of their common sense. Win Avery
Outside of saying it for lame trolling purposes, how the heck can anyone watch that fight, and even TRY to make a case for Carcillo winning? He pretty much ust stood there and took it like it was his first day in federal lockup.
And even more embarrassing then that, he actually tried to RUN AWAY at the start!! If the zebra wasn't directly in his path blocking him and Avery didn't jump on him, he would have been climbing the glass trying to get off the ice, lol.
Carcillo should be thanking God that Glen Sather is a senile moron, and he didn't have to answer to Colton Orr.
Avery's a puke but he gets this one because a few of his jersey jabs look like they stung Carcillo a bit. It was reported that Carcillo's knuckles were messed up from banging them off Gaborik's helmet, but nobody's gonna feel bad for him...
