During Sean Avery’s lone dismantling of the Flyers on Sunday, in which the truculent Rangers’ forward scored two goals and was able to draw three penalties in his team’s 3-1 victory, many noticed him sitting alone on the end of the bench. Not talking to or sitting in proximity of anyone on his team other than a trainer to his right, it appeared as though Avery was in self isolation.
Well, Flyers’ forward Ian Laperriere gave his thoughts to the NY Daily News as to why that might be.
“Those people are getting fooled by his act,” said Laperriere, who was a teammate of Avery in Los Angeles from 2002-04. “I know he is the worst teammate I’ve played with. And I know (the Rangers) feel the same way. That’s all I’m going to say.”
The Flyers face the Rangers twice more in the final two games of the season.
