Midway through the second period of Game 1 of the Wings-Ducks series, Ducks’ touch guy Corey Perry skated through the crease with an eye on intimidating Wings goalie Jimmy Howard.
As you watch the video, Perry could have easily avoided Howard, but picked his left skate up, kicking Howard upside the head. Perry, who has tried to use intimidation tactics before on the Wings then tried to talk his way out of a penalty. He was given two minutes for interference.
Perry really should hear from Brendan Shanahan on this. Howard obviously was wearing a mask, but there is no room for a skate to be used as a “weapon.”
