VIDEO: Corey Perry heads puck into crease to score
Ducks forward Corey Perry scored his 11th goal of the season after he headed the puck into the crease and finished it off with his stick.
Corey Perry has been scoring like a mad man lately and he's been doing so by really using his head. Or at least that was the case on Sunday against the Canucks.
With the Ducks getting a cycle set up in the offensive zone, a shot from Francois Beauchemin deflected off a defenseman and ran high, hitting Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo near the shoulder. From there the puck ricocheted into the air and toward a waiting Perry who then headed the puck into the crease and finished it off with his stick.
It wasn't a true header because he had to finish the goal in a more conventional fashion but it was close enough that we'll count it because unless it's Henrik Lundqvist being his aggressive self, we don't see a ton of headers in hockey. At least on purpose.
