Get well soon Sean. Avery was hospitalized with a lacerated spleen suffered during Game 3 of the NHL playoffs. The injury will knock him out for the remainder of the postseason. Although he is the most hated player in the game today, the Penguins realized the severity of the situation and offered their best wishes to the Ranger left winger. Pittsburgh will look for the sweep tomorrow night at MSG.
Avery Johnson was fired today, a day after the Mavericks were bounced out of the playoffs. This was the second consecutive year Dallas failed to get out of the first round after making the NBA Finals. Avery had a impressive 194-70 regular season record during the regular season, but a 23-24 record during the postseason. This is the first move of what I expect to be many; as Mark Cuban decides what he wants to do to change the build of the highest payrolled team in the NBA.
