1-2 games is a fair suspension.

There was really no intent to really hit Bartulis, in my opinion...looking at the replay, it really looks like Upshall kinda realizes at the last second he's gonna hit him, so he just puts his shoulder into it. I really don't think he meant to charge in and hit him, but at the last second definitely decided if they were going to collide, he might as well make it a hit (which probably helped him avoid getting hurt himself).

So, 2 games for being reckless and making a bad choice, I don't think there was ill intent there.
