That doesn’t mean they won’t wonder what could have been had they played better in the snow Saturday against the Badgers.

They exited knowing they had squandered their slight chance at reaching the College Football Playoff. Proud Wisconsin alums did not miss the opportunity to go after Minnesota on social media.

Perry’s game misconduct was the first such penalty for any player over the 12-game history of the Winter Classic. His long, lonely walk across the Cotton Bowl Stadium field to the locker rooms became something of a viral sensation on social media, but the veteran of more than 1,000 NHL games will not be laughing following Friday’s punishment.Perry, who signed with the Stars in the offseason as a free agent after 14 seasons with the Anaheim Ducks, will miss Dallas’ upcoming games against the Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, Ducks, San Jose Sharks and Colorado Avalanche, and he will forfeit $40,322.60 of salary. His suspension will be lifted for the Stars’ Jan. 16 contest with the Buffalo Sabres.Perry has three goals and 13 points in 34 games with the Stars this season. Nashville scored twice during the ensuing five-minute power play, but the Stars ultimately won the game 4-2.Corey Perry gets thrown out of the Winter Classic for elbowing Ryan Ellis pic.twitter.com/0yeegUxh41— Brady Trettenero (@BradyTrett) January 1, 2020MORE: Midseason replacement coaches with best odds to win Stanley Cup The Dallas Stars will be without the services of Corey Perry for the next two weeks.Perry was handed a five-game suspension by the NHL’s Department of Player Safety on Friday following his ejection from Monday’s Winter Classic.
