Video: Quick denies Perry on first-period penalty shot

May 16, 2014, 10:01 PM EDT

It was one of a handful of pivotal moments in the first period of Friday’s Game 7.

With his team down two goals, Anaheim Ducks forward Corey Perry was awarded a penalty shot when his stick broke on a breakaway chance and it appeared at first as though Drew Doughty was the guilty party for a slash on Perry’s stick as he closed in. But Perry, when given his one-on-one chance, couldn’t beat L.A. Kings goalie Jonathan Quick, who threw out the poke check.

Now, there was some debate as to whether this should’ve been called a penalty shot at all.

Yes, Perry’s stick broke, but did it happen because of the Doughty slash, or because of something else. The clip below shows Perry blocked a shot at the Anaheim blue line and a screen grab circulating Twitter right now shows the puck actually hit off the top part of the stick before Perry got his breakaway.

    Gotta love Dewey’s intensity. He knew from the outset that Perry skated up ice with a broken stick.

    Don’t know if I blame the ref for that bad call in awarding Perry the penalty shot. Can’t swear that the ref saw when the stick was broken.

    Doesn’t matter. Beautifully poked away by Quickie. Textbook goaltending.

    Kings dodged a bad call and Quickie is standing on his head. Again.
