Kevin Bieksa, a former teammate, remarked on Perry's unusual behavior, noting that he rarely exhibits such agitation towards teammates. This unexpected outburst has left many wondering what transpired to trigger Perry's anger.

"I can tell you from playing with Perry, he doesn't do this very often. He doesn't yell at teammates, he doesn't get this fired up on the bench, he's usually in his own little world."
Said Bieksa.

Speculation arose that the altercation stemmed from a previous misplay by Kane during the period. However, without concrete details, the incident has sparked discussion and raised concerns, particularly given Perry's history with Chicago.
