VIDEO: Alexander Semin has stick stolen by Corey Perry on bench
Corey Perry didn't have a stick in overtime on Friday night so he just decided to take one from Alexander Semin.
On Friday night with the Anaheim Ducks taking on the Hurricanes in Carolina, the game stretched into overtime and that's when Ducks star Corey Perry broke his stick. Instead of getting one off his own bench, he went the shorter route and just took one from Hurricanes forward Alexander Semin.
No really, that's exactly what he did. With Semin sitting on the boards ready to make a change, Perry smoothly skated by and simply took the stick right out of Semin's hands. All of a sudden Semin couldn't hop on the ice for his shift and Perry made off like a bandit.
The Hurricanes and Semin in particular were incredulous on the bench but Perry really did get away scott-free; he avoided a penalty on the play. Watch it again and again in GIF format and watch Semin's befuddlement at Perry's smooth criminal abilities via @Dr_Habs.
In the end the Hurricanes got the last laugh as they did win the game in a shootout, but Perry gave quite a few laughs in the process.
