Corey Perry was a healthy scratch once again in this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs.

After a rough Game 1, where he took a penalty at a crucial moment, the Edmonton Oilers decided to bench him for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Florida Panthers. Perry was in disbelief following the ref controversy in Game 1 against the Panthers.

This isn't the first time Perry has been scratched; he also sat out four straight games in the second round. So, head coach Chris Knoblauch's decision wasn't a huge surprise.

In Perry's place, fringe-NHL player Sam Carrick, who typically plays in the AHL, stepped into the lineup for Game 2.
Knoblauch's lineup changes have often been successful, but benching Perry didn't stop the Florida Panthers from dominating. They won Game 2 with a 4-1 score, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.
