Per TG-Per his agent, @Jay_Grossman, Anton Volchenkov suspended for three games for elbow to head of Zach Boychuk.

That's pretty harsh. I expected 1-2 games at worst. But then again, maybe A-Train has had 1-2 game suspensions in the past so he was considered a repeat offender? I'm not sure. Looks like we'll have to survive with Fraser and Salmela in the line-up.

Here's the clip that was posted in the other thread as well for reference:

If Matt Cooke doesn't get more for his hit from behind last night, this is complete and utter bullsh!t.

Consistent with the flowchart:

That's lame, his head is lower because he is reaching for the puck and it looks to me like Volchenkov let up when he noticed that.

I saw CRASHER trip a kid on skates and then he stole the kids lunch money and slapped his mom when she came to pick him up.. All because the kid looked at his crease

Nonsense!! But hey we all know the Devils being on a roll is no good for the NHL. The Caps are in the crapper and Pittsburgh is Crosby-less.

Three games...figures. Now that we have a pulse, the NHL's doing its level best to screw us again, no calls last night and now putting Volchenkov out till after the next Canes game.

Lol what a joke there is only one way of looking at it and that's that Matt Cooke is a scumbag.

Oh come on! I am starting to really think the league does have a beef with the Devils. It was a bad hit but there has been worse with less consequences.

What the hell was Anton thinking? That looked pretty intentional.

Edit: To be clear, I disagree with the NHL's ruling, but why even give them the chance to suspend you?

Totally incindental. Zach Boychuk was going down and more or less ran into what would have been a shoulder check if he didn't go down. It's half Train half-Boychuk. Boychuk's head snapping back is more of a result of Zach moving head head quickly out of the way than A-Train hitting it.

When I saw the hit last night I already knew he was getting suspended...not for the hit but mostly because he is wearing Red, white and Black.

If his name was Cooke or Avery, this hit would have been called a beauty or a legal hit.

Once again, fvckK YOU NHL
