 All was quiet on the NHL's suspension front yesterday.

 There was no word on whether Todd Harvey would be suspended for cross-checking Martin Gelinas in the head late in Game 5 Monday night.

 But Gelinas had a few words to say about the incident in which Harvey took exception to his accidental clipping of San Jose goalie Evgeni Nabokov.

 "He said I speared the goalie," said Gelinas, who noted Harvey had a few choice words for him in addition to the abuse. "I have no recollection (of that).

 "If I didn't get hit that hard after that, maybe I would've remembered what happened. But I just drove the net to try and find that puck, then everything else happened after."

 Harvey followed a sliding Gelinas into the corner, where he forcefully cross-checked Gelinas to the head. The Flames veteran was shaken up after taking the stick across the face.

 The 33-year-old Quebec native was then escorted from the ice by Flames athletic therapist Morris Boyer but did return later in the third period.

 "I'm OK," said Gelinas. "I got a little dizzy but then I was OK after. He got me on the side (of the face). It was all right."

 There was no welt or bruising as a result of the cross-check but it's possible a ban to Harvey could still be handed down from the league's disciplinarian, Colin Campbell.

 "It's a blow to the head and anytime that happens it can cause a lot of injury," said Gelinas. "Fortunately, it didn't happen that way."
