Ryan Garbutt put his team shorthanded for spearing Corey Perry in the groin.

SB Nation 2014 NHL Playoff Bracket

Seriously, what is it with the 2014 playoffs and things centering around players' and coaches' groin areas?

The latest example came in the first period of the Dallas-Anaheim game on Friday night when Stars forward Ryan Garbutt was given a five-minute major and an ejection for spearing Corey Perry in the groin.

The Ducks ended up scoring a power-play goal on the ensuing advantage while Dallas also scored a shorthanded goal.

Perry briefly left the game but later returned.

Earlier this postseason Bruins forward Milan Lucic was fined $5,000 for spearing the Red Wings' Danny DeKeyser from behind.
