Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants reports that Sean Avery scored twice for White to give him three goals in two scrimmages, albeit two have been empty-netters, as White, with Henrik Lundqvist in net, improved to 2-0 during training camp in today's second scrimmage.
...besides the outstanding play of Stepan the other most pleasant sign at camp so far is a much improved Avery. He looks like he means business this year.
Gross also has this quote from Marian Gaborik on the Chris Drury injury...
“It’s just frustrating to him that it happened,” Gaborik said. “He’s our captain and obviously a big part of our team. We just have to manage.”
...i know Drury hasn't lived up to his contract, but when your captain goes down that is definitely a blow to the team.
Finally, Jesse Spector at the Blueshirt Blog spoke with Derek Stepan on playing on a line with Gabby and Afro...
"I had a blast with those two guys,” Stepan said. “I don’t know how chemistry works - you step on the ice and just seem to find guys. For us three, we just clicked, and I don’t know if it’s something about first day, first scrimmage, everyone’s excited to play, or if it’s chemistry. I don’t know what it was, but I’m excited to see if we get another chance at it and see if it was truly chemistry. Because I don’t really know how to explain chemistry - when you can find it, it’s something special. Plus, I didn’t take chemistry in school.”
...having chemistry with the two top scoring threats on the team is always good for your chances of making the team.
