New York Rangers' Avery Hospitalized

New York Rangers forward Sean Avery is in a New York hospital, where he's being treated for a lacerated spleen.

The noted NHL agitator went by car from Madison Square Garden to the hospital with the team physician after last night's playoff loss to visiting Pittsburgh. A club spokesman says Avery "walked into the hospital," and "was never in a life-threatening situation."

A spokesman for St. Vincent's Medical Center says Avery is in stable condition.

The club says the 28-year-old Avery will be sidelined for the remainder of the season but is expected to make a full recovery.

The Rangers' season might not last much longer. The Penguins lead the best-of-seven, second-round series three games to none with Game 4 scheduled for tomorrow night at Madison Square Garden.
