Corey Perry fancies himself indestructible out on the ice, but Ryan McDonagh put a few notches in his own belt at Perry’s expense on Monday night. With the Anaheim Ducks in town, the New York Rangers defenseman managed to knock Perry into New York’s bench not once, but twice. Check it out.
While the play looks a lot like a loop, it actually happens twice in a short span of time. Around 10 seconds, give or take a few. The Rangers appear to have words with Perry on both occasions, and it’s likely that he won’t be wandering out that way too often for the foreseeable future.

Twitter erupted in response to the play, and anti-Ducks fans may have a new patron of sorts. McDonagh is a tough customer in his own right, and certainly put Perry in his place on this play.
Of course, Perry extracted his own revenge, only he didn’t know it at the time. He struck for a goal 2:29 seconds into the contest. That’ll show ‘em Perry…that’ll show ‘em.
