Watch in HD for better quality. The "kick" is at about 15 seconds. It's fast but they get over it and don't show more replays. Neither broadcast showed a very good view. This is the CSN Sharks broadcast.
Anaheim Ducks Corey Perry crosschecks San Jose Sharks goaltender Evgeni Nabokov after making a save. The incident in question is whether or not Nabokov intended to injure Perry with his toe when he turned over on the ice to get up after the attack.
Perry, suspended four games in January for an elbow to the head of Philadelphia Flyers rookie Claude Giroux, said he had fallen on the back of Nabokovs legs but denied there was a cross-checking motion or anything of the sort.
'Everything was over,' Perry said, 'I was still lying there on my knees. All of a sudden, Nabokov just turned and kicked me. He rolled onto his side and kicked me with his right leg. He hit me with his toe.'
'I didnt kick him,' Nabokov said. 'I was moving my legs to get up, to get out of there, so whatever he was saying is his problem. Ask him what he did. Its over with, so who cares? We got the two points, and were going home.'
Praise the lord that Corey Perry was not injured in this malicious attempt by Evgeni Nabokov to permanently sever Perry's career in one fell swoop. Evgeni, may god have mercy on your violent soul, for the Ducks shall not.
