Breaking: Corey Perry somewhat of a dick

Down 3-1 to the Czechs, Corey Perry ran Tomas Vokoun behind the Czech net, knocking him out of the play and allowing Matt Duchene to score. No call was made on the play due to Vokoun actually trying to get up, rather than flop around as Roy or Luongo would.

[Skip to 0:27 in, unless you want to endure the Czech Dave Randorf in slow motion]

At the end of the game, one heroic fan captured a video of a mix-up. Guess who's at the bottom of the pile restrained by both linesman?

At his best, Corey Perry is one of the best players in the world. He's one of only two players to win a Memorial Cup, World Junior Championship, Olympic Gold and Stanley Cup Championship. At his worst, Perry is a man who can act like a dick, begging for trouble and giving fat Czech fans [end of the second video] a chance to act like Philadelphia fans.

As for his team in Germany at the World Championships, Canada is forced to play another game against Russia, who seem to be the only team that sent a complete roster. A Russian win ensures that they take over the top spot in the official IIHF rankings.

It's raining outside, and now Coronation Street is over. What will I do with myself tonight?
