So it’s not bad enough that the Rangers lost the game on Wednesday but later on that evening, their resident bad boy Sean Avery was rushed to the hospital after he suffered a lacerated spleen.
Avery, 28, arrived at St. Vincent’s Medical Center about 3 a.m., a hospital source said. Five hours earlier, the Rangers lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in a Stanley Cup playoff game at Madison Square Garden.
Avery’s mother, Marlene, told the Toronto Sun that her son had a collision with a Pittsburgh defenseman in the first period and played the rest of the game with a lacerated spleen.
Sounds like a pretty bad night for Avery. This just goes to show you that what goes around comes around. It will always catch up to you. Somewhere, Martin Brodeur is laughing.
