The 30-year-old defenceman sent Perry head-first to the ice following the latter’s go-ahead goal in the second period of Game 3.

While it wasn’t exactly Dale Hunter on Pierre Turgeon in 1993, it was most certainly a cheap-shot on a defenceless player celebrating a goal.

Byfuglien was suspended four games on April 2 for a vicious cross-check to the back of New York Rangers forward J.T. Miller’s head.

The Ducks tied the Jets late in Game 3 before Rickard Rakell scored the game-winner just over five minutes into the overtime period.

The Jets head into Game 4 down 3-0 in the best-of-seven series.
