Deep in the heart of Texas, Sean Avery apparently has discovered a sidekick, a partner in agitation, if you will. Introducing Sean Avery and Steve Ott: Hockey's Most Despised Duo. While Avery's omnipresent shenanigans are well-documented, it was Ott who was ripped by Cherry on national television for his so-called "shameful" tactics during the Boston Bruins' 5-1 victory over the Dallas Stars on Saturday. Last night, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli followed up Cherry's comments by saying Avery and Ott "were a bit out of control." "I just think things got carried away in the heat of battle," Chiarelli added during a phone interview from Boston. Cherry was disgusted by Ott's refusal to drop the gloves with Bruins players, who were livid with the Dallas forward for several questionable hits near the boards. Avery would stick his nose into the festivities, too, leading to a fight-filled third period.
This should be interesting...I remember last year Joe Thornton wanted to kill Ott and he ran away like a little b***h.
