Do you agree or disagree with Art Regner at FoxSports Detroit,
Perry, in trying to avoid Howard, leaped in air and clipped Howard in the face with his skate. Perry received a two-minute goalie-interference penalty, which the Wings squandered.
Howard appeared momentarily dazed but continued to play. After the game, he downplayed the incident.
"His skate just hit me in the face," Howard told reporters. "I was trying to get out of the way. It was nothing. It was harmless."
Thinking about it for the last couple of days, I believe Perry’s skate-scrape of Howard’s face was intentional and warranted a fine, maybe even a suspension.
In typical NHL fashion, the league did nothing because Howard wasn’t injured on the play.
