But Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau reiterated it would be wise for Perry and defenseman Francois Beauchemin to use the holiday break to further heal a sprained knee and broken finger, respectively. The Ducks won’t play again until Saturday.
Perry and Beauchemin stayed out for extra work after the regulars left the ice.
"I don’t think they'll be playing tonight," Boudreau said. "But obviously they're getting closer. They're skating full right now. We don't play for four days after tonight. It seems like it would be silly when you've got four other days to rest to not give them that opportunity to heal."
