No Excuses From Corey Perry

from Elliott Teaford of the OC Register,

He was the Ducks’ highest-paid player this season at $8.625million and he delivered with 34 regular-season goals, tops on the team. But he didn’t score a single goal during the Ducks’ seven-game loss to the Predators, chipping in four assists for his only points.

At game’s end, after the Ducks lost their fourth Game 7 at Honda Center in as many seasons, Perry sat in front of his locker in full uniform as a pack of reporters descended upon him. He spoke softly about his frustration and praised the Predators for their defensive effort against him.

“I’ve got no excuses, that’s the way it went,” he said. “They swarm and push you against the wall and pin you there. It’s tough. They play strong defensively. They’re a strong defensive team. They know how to box out and they did it all series.”

Of Game 7, Perry added, “It’s tough. It’s not the way we wanted to start, but the second and third periods I thought we threw everything at them. A bounce here, a bounce there, and it can be a different story.”

Having Perry the Punk be the one who had a golden opportunity to tie the game there at the end only to whiff on it? Well, that was just icing on the cake.
