from Mark Masters of TSN,
Ryan Getzlaf breaks into a big grin when asked about the agitating antics of his longtime linemate Corey Perry.
"What? You want me to talk about that?" the Anaheim Ducks captain asks chuckling.
After some gentle prodding Getzlaf opens up.
"That's part of Perry's game. I mean, he's always going to play hard, play hard between the whistles and, you know, there's always a little extra stuff going on and it's stuff he's been doing his whole career. It's part of his makeup and things that fuel him to be a better player on the ice and I thought he was unbelievable [in Game 3]."
On the ice, Perry is in the middle of everything. Rarely will a shift go by without him getting engaged physically with someone.
"He is what he is," said Getzlaf. "He's not out there chirping at every guy that skates by or anything like that. He's just a bit of a rat out there, I guess, if you want to call him [that]. He stirs the pot and he does the things that he does and that helps make him a better player."
