Watch: Corey Perry Violently Crosschecks Leafs Goalie Jonathan Bernier

The Anaheim Ducks were trailing the Leafs 4-0 early in the third and Corey Perry was in no mood to play around. Clearly.

This was a chippy game from the start, and Perry was probably already frustrated from taking a rough shoulder from Nazem Kadri that temporarily knocked him out of the game. So when he got slashed in the back of the legs by Jonathan Bernier, he went ballistic, earning two for slashing and two for cross-checking.

The game featured 44 penalty minutes, including a first-period fight between Josh Manson and Roman Polak.

Perry was minus-1 on the evening with five shots on goal.
