The A-Train has been forced to temporarily hit the breaks as word comes from the NHL hierarchy that New Jersey’s Anton Volchenkov has been given a 3 game suspension. The defenseman is suspended for his elbow on Carolina Hurricanes Zach Boychuk midway through the second period of last nights 3-2 Devils win. He will now be on head coach Jacques Lemaire’s naughty list even more so after receiving two (and only) other penalties in the game.

Carolina scored both their goals on Volchenkov penalties. Below is the video of the incident, what’s slightly mind boggling is how Ryan Carter who punched Volchenkov in retaliation got NOTHING while the defenseman got a 2 minute minor for elbowing.
