Sean Avery made a triumphant return to the New York Rangers line-up last night. The Rangers defeated the horrid, New York in-name-only, Islanders last night in the arena fondly known as the Nassau Mausoleum. The Rangers who had been winless in their last nine games on the road managed to break out of the slump and are now 2-1-1 under new coach, John Tortorella. They are in a furious race for the final playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. The Clarion Content had been agitating for Avery's return. In his last stint with the team, the Rangers were 50-23-13 with him and 9-13-3 when he was out. As for the Rangers other new acquisitions, forward Nik Antropov and defenseman Derek Morris, we will be consulting with our metro New York hockey sources and get back to you posthaste. Unlike some other Rangers supporters, here at the Clarion Content, we trust Glen Sather's hockey instincts.
