Volchenkov Gets Three For Elbow

Devils defenseman Anton Volchenkov has been given a three-game suspension for his elbow to the head of Carolina Hurricanes forward Zack Boychuk.

It happened in the second period of Tuesday night's game in New Jersey and Volchenkov was given a minor elbowing penalty on the play. Boychuk remained in the game after getting popped.

Volchenkov's hearing with the NHL was held over the phone, which suggested that he would be eligible for a maximum ban of five games for the incident.

Here's the elbow...
Not cool...
