Last year Perry took a stick in the face and went down. He was cut bad enough to need stitches and left the ice. The ref gave Perry a diving penalty and the other guy 2 minutes for high sticking. Clearly by not waiting the ref painted himself in a corner so that he gave 2 minutes when an injury was clearly evident. I guess there are no "correctable errors" like in basketball.
