In the second period of Game 1 on Tuesday night, the Ducks' Corey Perry ill-advisedly skated through the crease and lifted his left skate, which came into contact with the face of Wings netminder Jimmy Howard. Have a look at the dangerous play below [via SB Nation]: The Clint Malarchuk incident always comes to mind in these situations. Thankfully, Howard was okay and Perry got the bad box for a couple minutes.  Score is tied 1-1 going into the third period.

During the second period of the Ducks' 3-1 victory over the Red Wings on Tuesday, Perry skated across the Wings crease, in between goalie Jimmy Howard and defenseman Nik Kronwall. Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped up in air and clipped...
