Two months after Anaheim Ducks’ forward Corey Perry was suspended four games for blatantly elbowing Flyers’ rookie Claude Giroux in the head, the notoriously dirty right wing got a taste of his own devices in his team’s 1-0 loss to the San Jose Sharks, Sunday.
During the post-game wrapup, Perry was whining to the media that Sharks’ goalie Evgeni Nabokov kicked him with the toe of his skate during a pileup in the crease.
“Everything was over,” Perry said. “I was still lying there on my knees. All of a sudden, Nabokov just turned and kicked me. He rolled onto his side and kicked me with his right leg. He hit me with his toe.”
