That Corey Perry is one quick-thinking guy.
During Friday night’s game against the Hurricanes, the Anaheim winger broke his stick during overtime, but he wasn’t helpless for very long. Instead of making his way to his own bench, Perry saw Carolina’s Alexander Semin perched on the boards ready to make a change, and he took full advantage of the easy opportunity, swiping the stick from his opponent’s hands in one swift motion.
The casual steal left Semin and the rest of the Carolina bench speechless, but while Perry’s theft ultimately went unpunished, the Canes were the ones who prevailed. Carolina went on to win in a shootout, and Perry was unable to plunder any more of their equipment.
