Relax, Perry’s Playing Great

It’s no secret that the Anaheim Ducks rely heavily on the output of their top line. As “the twins” Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry go, so does the entire team. Everyone is out of sorts these days, so allow me to address the elephant in Honda Center: Perry’s production is down, significantly.
