Jared Cowen has received a two-game suspension for his high hit on Buffalo's Zemgus Girgensons on Tuesday.

The NHL ruled that Cowen could have avoided making Girgensons' head the principal point of contact. Girgensons didn't suffer an injury as a result of the hit and Cowen didn't have a suspension history prior to this incident. Both of those factors likely worked in Cowen's favor. He'll be eligible to return on Monday

Jared Cowen feels he's still trying to find his rhythm following hip surgery last November.

"It's more physical than anything," said Cowen. "My hip isn't bothering me, but it was the same way with the knee. The season after surgery is always up and down. You're playing, but you're not really playing (the way you used to). It's a tough schedule. You're playing so many games, it's tough to really feel good about what you're doing. It's just the constant battles." The 22-year-old defender has three points, 54 hits, 27 blocks and a plus-2 rating in 18 games this season.

I've only played one game since last year. I just want to get good with the puck and make better plays."
