The Winter Classic is a premier event on the NHL’s calendar and this year’s version was no different.
But for Dallas Stars forward Corey Perry, it was over in a mere two minutes and 44 seconds when he was ejected for elbowing the Nashville Predators’ Ryan Ellis in the head. Ellis (concussion) did not return to the game.
Normally, when a player is ejected they go right to the tunnel and to their dressing room. Well, with the rink situated in the middle of the Cotton Bowl — the walk to the Stars’ locker room on Wednesday was a little longer than usual.
So, of course, Twitter did what Twitter does and had some fun with Perry’s walk of shame.
I love the walk of shame for Corey Perry. Every arena needs that.
