from Dan O’Neill of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
David Perron experienced headache symptoms during the Blues’ morning skate at TG Garden and will not play against the Boston Bruins on Saturday. Perron, who is tied for the team lead in goals with five, experienced the headaches as a result of a hit he sustained to the head on Thursday night at Scottrade Center.
San Jose forward Joe Thornton was given a major penalty and game misconduct on the play. A day later, the NHL handed down an additional two-game suspension to Thornton for blindside hit.
“It’s really unfortunate,” Blues president John Davidson said. “With head injuries, sometimes these symptoms show up a little later. We’ll just have to see how it goes with David, hopefully he’s all right.”
The situation places a large foot directly in the mouth of some national commentators, who criticized Perron for embellishing the play, insinuating his ability to return to the game and score a goal as corroborating evidence.
I wonder if those who claimed Perron embellished the play will make it right by saying they were wrong?
