The nastiness continued Friday night as the Ducks-Stars series shifted back to Anaheim.

Ryan Garbutt speared Corey Perry at center ice for all to see midway through the first period of Game 5.

Garbutt received a five-minute major and a game misconduct. Perry went to the dressing room after the spear.

Dallas has made a point of targeting Anaheim's two stars, Ryan Getzlaf and Perry, in the series. In Game 3, Antoine Roussel went after Getzlaf, despite Getzlaf nursing a severe facial injury after taking a Tyler Seguin slap shot in the kisser in Game 1.

Getzlaf missed Game 4 in Dallas but was in the lineup for Game 5 in Anaheim.
