The New York Rangers forward Bandon Prust is going to be suspended for his elbow on Anton Volchenkov during yesterday's game. I predicted that this play would warrant a suspension from the National Hockey League Department of Player Safety yesterday. The NHL has set a precedence if you hit someone where the head is the principle point of contact you will be suspended, it no longer matters if you're a repeat offender or not. Prust is not a repeat offender and he will become the 13th player to be suspended by the NHL during this season's Stanley Cup Playoffs.
 Prust has no one to blame but himself on this play and I don't think you can really defend this hit. A player is responsible for his actions on the ice at all times.
NHL.COM --- It appears as though the New York Rangers will be without Brandon Prust on Monday night.

Multiple media outlets are reporting that the rugged forward has been suspended for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the New Jersey Devils after his hit on Anton Volchenkov during the second period of Saturday's 3-0 win at the Prudential Center.

Volchenkov was carrying the puck along the boards and chipped it out of the zone when Prust landed an elbow to the back of Volchenkov's helmet. Volchenkov, was down on the ice for almost a minute afterward, but was able to continue playing.
