Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Corey Perry is the master of walking that fine line between scamp and scoundrel. During last night's Kings win, TSN dug up footage of Game 1 of Perry filling L.A.'s Jeff Carter's glove with water.

Carter doesn't appear to realize until he goes to put the glove on, which makes the whole thing an unqualified success. I can't lipread everything Carter says to Perry (and the linesman), but I'm pretty sure the word "jackass" is used.

A legitimately great player, Perry's more than a pest. Which doesn't mean he's not open for retribution—in Game 1, he took a punch to the balls from Kings goalies Jonathan Quick.

Perry's had a banner season for this sort of thing. Remember opening night, when Avs coach Patrick Roy was literally busting down walls to get at Bruce Boudreau? Check the 19-second mark of this video—there's Perry, tossing some water at Roy.

And on Nov. 15, Perry took part in a drive-by snatching of Alex Semin's stick.

The jerk store is all out of Corey Perry, but it's getting more in stock soon.
