Yappy winger Sean Avery is known as one of the game's great agitators. Yesterday, in the New York Rangers' 4-1 thumping of the Flyers at Madison Square Garden, he also became - surprise, surprise - an offensive force. Avery scored two of New York's three power-play goals before a national-television audience and the Rangers' 150th consecutive home sellout. The penalty-hindered Flyers were denied their second win in as many days against the Rangers. The Rangers, who entered the game ranked 28th out of 30 NHL teams on the power play, were 3 for 9 with the extra skater.

Look again The Penguins' Alex Goligoski couldn't believe his eyes. The Devils were really going to play an NHL game with only 15 skaters. "It was very weird seeing only three lines on the scout sheet prior to the game," Goligoski said Monday. "I didn't think it was real. We knew then that we had to make them work a little harder and keep them honest. We were definitely aware of what they had. " The Penguins won, 3-1, as the Devils fell to 0-2-1, their worst start since the 2001-02 season.

Sean Avery cleared waivers yesterday, and the next step for the Dallas Stars is to find a team for the controversial left wing to start playing again. Dallas placed Avery on waivers Saturday. As expected, no team claimed Avery, who signed a $15.5 million, 4-year contract last summer. Avery played only 23 games for Dallas before being suspended six games by the NHL on Dec. 2 for crude comments made about his ex-girlfriends dating other NHL players. A source told ESPN.com last night that Avery is expected to be assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.

Of all the cajoling, snide remarks and stunts Sean Avery pulled on the way to becoming the biggest pest in hockey, he had he never gone far enough that the NHL suspended him, until yesterday. The Dallas left winger was suspended indefinitely by commissioner Gary Bettman for using a crude term about former girlfriends now dating other hockey players. Bettman acted within hours, in time to keep Avery out of the Stars' game against Calgary last night. Hours after the suspension, the Stars beat the Flames, 3-1, as Fabian Brunnstrom's breakaway goal at 7:53 of the second period stood up as the game-winner.

STOCKHOLM - Sean Avery appears to have lost out on the final spot on the New York Rangers' roster. The noted agitator was placed on waivers after being beaten out by fellow forward Erik Christensen. Avery could end up on another NHL team if claimed off waivers by Wednesday, on the Rangers' AHL affiliate in Connecticut, or loaned to a team in Europe. Avery drew attention last week when he said Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds directed an antigay slur in his direction during a preseason game.

APPARENTLY, Sean Avery is still an annoying gnat. According to the New York Post, the former Rangers agitator quit the cast of Christy Smith-Sloman's off-Broadway play "Negative Is Positive" because he thought a stagehand called him a derogatory name. According to the story, a young woman named Natalie asked Avery if he wanted a slice of pizza while at rehearsal on Tuesday. The 34-year-old retired winger, however, thought she called him a term that fittingly rhymes with "crass soul.

FORMER NEW YORK Rangers center Sean Avery is set to appear on "Dancing With the Stars," according to a report. Maybe it's time the show changed it's name to "Dancing with the Ex-Stars" or "Dancing with the Scars" (Avery made People's sexiest scars list in 2007 because of a gash on his lip). According to the New York Post, Avery has been seen training at the New York studio of trainer Tracy Anderson, who has worked with Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez. If Avery is looking for music to dance to, we suggest he select Elvis Costello's "Goon Squad.

Marian Gaborik made up for a frustrating night by scoring in the last round of a shootout to give the New York Rangers a 2-1 win over the visiting Anaheim Ducks on Thursday night. Gaborik gave goalie Jonas Hiller a head fake then a little shimmy before tucking the puck past him. That left it up to New York's Henrik Lundqvist, who stopped Cherry Hill's Bobby Ryan and then pumped his fist as the crowd roared in approval. Ryan, who beat New York in a shootout last month in Stockholm, scored the tying goal late in the second period for Anaheim after Jeff Woywitka put New York up with his first Rangers goal, late in the first.
