09:57 AM ET 10.26 | Stars forward Ryan Garbutt was back at practice for the first time since the NHL suspended him five games for charging Anaheim's Dustin Penner in Sunday's 6-3 loss to the Ducks. The NHL handed down the suspension Wednesday after an in-person hearing with Garbutt in New York. "It was good. I was glad I went there for the meeting. I had a good talk with (NHL Director of Player Safety) Brendan Shanahan," Garbutt said. "I definitely accept the penalty that I got, and I hope that Dustin Penner is feeling better." The Stars forward said he'll take lessons from the suspension and make a few adjustments, but he still expects to play the game fast and hard. "I think I'll have to make small adjustments. I can't change the player I am out there," he said. "I am going to play the game fast and things happen fast out there. You don't want to see guys get hurt. I might have to change a couple things."

Joffrey Lupul's mad at Ryan for hitting his hero "Ironman" Penner.

When asked about the likelihood of squaring off against Lupul in their Nov. 9th match-up, Patrice Bergeron had no comment

But happy every arena's press box has a chair with his name on it.

And he won't be in tonight's lineup either due to his sphenisciphobia.

Exactly. That's all it takes. You can still go fast and hit hard, just stay away from the head.

You wanna bet? That's what Matt Cooke said. Look at him now. As tame as a neutered cat.

That's nothing. Canuck's been having a bad feeling about the Leafs for over 40 years.
