Video: Perry bumps slump, scores first of series

May 8, 2014, 10:39 PM EDT

It didn’t take the Ducks long to solve Jonathan Quick in Game 3.

Anaheim sniper Corey Perry scored his first of the series — and just his third of the postseason — 4:06 into the first period, on the power play, to give his team a 1-0 lead in a virtual must-win at Staples.

Perry’s lack of production in Anaheim’s opening losses at the Honda Center was well documented — despite finishing second in the NHL in goals this year (43) and averaging a point per game, Perry had yet to hit the scoresheet against the Kings before tonight’s PPG.

Speaking of the power play, it continues to be a bright spot for Anaheim as of late. Dating back to Game 5 of the Dallas series, the Ducks have now scored seven times on their last 19 man advantage opportunities, good for a 37 percent success rate.

    Then he misses an ENer to which the kings scored shortly after.

    He’s back in his rut.

    I’m not a big fan of Perry’s. He reminds me of someone who was picked on as a child, and now is using his play to right the evils of his past. In other words, a classic punk. His antics of pouring water into Carts’ glove, and his body-slamming the glass after his goal in a sort of “TAKE THAT!” statement are evidence of his “I’m getting even with everyone” complex. If I liked the guy, his actions would be considered sad.

    Someday soon, his Karma is going to catch up with him. When it does, I hope, for his sake, that it doesn’t hurt too much.
