Found May 02, 2013 on Fox Sports Detroit:
Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry is an enigma -- a gifted scorer who has an edge but can't seem to play a clean, physical game. 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 Howard in the face with his skate. Perry received a two-minute goalie-interference penalty, which the Wings squandered. Howard appeared momentarily dazed but continued to play. After the game, he downplayed the incident. "His skate just hit me in the face," Howard told reporters. "I was trying to get out of the way. It was nothing. It was harmless." Thinking about it for the last couple of days, I believe Perrys skate-scrape of Howards face was intentional and warranted a fine, maybe even a suspension. In typical NHL fashion, the league did nothing because Howard wasnt injured on t...

Ducks’ Corey Perry kicks Jimmy Howard in the head (VIDEO)

YouTube 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...

Corey Perry kicks Jimmy Howard

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...

Discussing The Skate To Howard’s Head From Corey Perry

Do you agree or disagree with Art Regner at FoxSports Detroit, Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped in air and clipped Howard in the face with his skate. Perry received a two-minute goalie-interference penalty, which the Wings squandered.  Howard appeared momentarily dazed but continued to play. After the game, he downplayed the incident.      "His skate...

Corey Perry Kicks Jimmy Howard in the Head During Game 1: Video

Corey Perry has never been one to shy away from playing the role of irritant when the Detroit Red Wings and Anaheim Ducks get together. And the Ducks veteran was up to his old tricks again Tuesday during Game 1 of the teams’ Western Conference playoff series. In the second period of the game, Perry had a scoring chance in close on Wings goalie Jimmy Howard. Howard made the save...

Anaheim Ducks Corey Perry kicks Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard in the head (Video)

It's not often that we get to see NHL goalies getting kicked in the head but during game one of Tuesday night's Anaheim Ducks/Detroit Red Wings first round playoff series, Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard took a skate to the head. The blow was delivered by Anaheim defender Corey Perry: (Courtesy of It's Always Sunny in Detroit)

(Video) Corey Perry Goalie interference on Jimmy Howard

This could have been a very dangerous play, which could have had a bad end result as Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry's skate was very close to the head area of Detroit Redwings goalie Jimmy Howard. Obviously, it wasn't what I would call a deliberate or a dirty play, it was just a dangerous play. Perry was doing what all good forwards do, he was going hard to the net. Goalies...

Corey Perry goes Cobra Kai on Jimmy Howard

Howard must stand tall

For the Red Wings to advance in these Stanley Cup playoffs, goalie Jimmy Howard must be better. Especially now that rookie defenseman Danny DeKeyser is out for the year with a broken thumb. Since his arrival late in the regular season, DeKeyser has stabilized the defense, and his loss will be difficult for the Wings to overcome, unless Howard elevates his game. Leading 4-1 nearly...

Ladies and Gents, This Was Corey Perry As A Child

This has to be the best picture ever, confirming everything I knew already about Perry.  He's on the left:  That's who Detroit has to beat .  That guy.  (Credit to Reddit)

Teemu Selanne snipes Jimmy Howard

Teemu Selanne may be the oldest player currently in the NHL, but he has still got it.  Selanne let this bomb go early in the third period on the power play to give the Anaheim Ducks the lead 2-1.  Detroit Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard was partially screened by his defenseman Danny DeKeyser, and he never saw the shot.  It was perfectly placed and the Finnish Flash showed that he...

Frustrate The Heck Out Of The Ducks

I have watched numerous games involving the Ducks this season and have noticed they haven't taken as many penalties as they have in the past. Some of those penalties in previous seasons were of head-scratching variety, taken at the wrong time of the game and/or actually changed the momentum in favor of the opposing team. Boudreau has done a good job of stressing those types...

Game 2: Tie it up

Tuesday’s game was a bit of a letdown for Wings fans. We all felt that the outcome should have been reversed, and even with sloppy play at times the game was pretty evenly matched, and could have gone either way. 1 game does not make a series, and you can bet that the Wings will try and reverse the momentum with a split tonight. You as fans have a responsibility to reverse...

Video: Detroit Red Wings Gustav Nyquist scores the game winner

The Detroit Redwings Gustav Nyquist will go down as the guy who shot the game-winning goal against Anaheim on Thursday night in OT. The power-play was spurred on by a beautiful toe-drag by Valtteri Flippula who set up the shot. The 5-4 victory was somewhat ugly for the Red Wings who took Game 2 of their quarterfinal series. They blew a three-goal third period lead to set up what...
