Avery, who was recalled Tuesday after clearing re-entry waivers, took turns in a fourth-line rotation with Artem Anisimov, Erik Christensen and Andre Deveaux. He spoke to a large gathering of reporters in front of his locker afterwards and talked about his excitement level of being back with the team he loves and the confidence he gained by playing two games in the AHL.
"We're all here because we want to play for the Rangers," Avery said. "Everyone gets to make that decision at some point, and I love this team, I want to win, and I want to play as hard as I possibly can."
