If the Rangers make it by the 1st round and draw the Pens in the next series, I think Avery can get under the skin of both Malkin and Crosby. Look at what he did last year against Kovalchuk and Hossa. That team (Pitt) has a lot of firepower and a lot of veteran leadership, but their goaltending is really questionnable.

It's one thing if Avery is just gooing it up, but he's not. He's got 3 goals in this series, so it's a moot point. Look at what Claude Lemieux used to do. In the regular season, he was nowhere to be found, but once the playoffs came, he was money - getting under everyone's skin, scoring big goals, etc. This is what he's paid to do. And the Rangers have a fantastic record with him in the linup as opposed to when he's out.
