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 are in a dangerous field.

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...
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...
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.

The Clint Malarchuk incident always comes to mind in these situations. Thankfully, Howard was okay...
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...
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.

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.
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.

Did you expect anything else? Closing out the season with a 3-0 dominant win over the Dallas Stars to take whatever control over their playoff lives to earn a 7th seed in the West facing a potentially more manageable first round opponent in Anaheim.
We also learned a lot from this Wings team this year. Heading into the season, with the loss of Lidstrom and Brad Stuart there was...
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...

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...
Playoffs start tonight. Many of us from time to time weren't sure if this day would come for the Wings, but deep down we all knew that Captain Z wouldn't let his first season as commander go down as the year the Wings didn't make it in.
My coverage on this site has been lacking. Some of that is due to work, some to feeling in a rut as a fan. I wrote an article right...
The Ducks got off to the start they were hoping for with a 3-1 Gm. 1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.
The game was tied 1-1 through two periods until the ageless wonder, Teemu Selanne, snapped a perfect dart past Wings goalie Jimmy Howard for the game-winning goal. The goal was Selanne's 10th post-season game winner and eighth as a Duck.
The game was extremely intense...
I dig previews. It shows how little most of the supposed experts really know. So why wait? Lets take a look.

Helene St. James - Red Wings in six. The travel will test, but the way the Red Wings have been playing for the past week should carry them through this series. The Wings already showed twice this season that they can win in Anaheim. The...
