The NHL will meet with Rangers forward Brandon Prust regarding the elbow he threw to the head of Anton Volchenkov on Sunday morning.

The elbow that Brandon Prust of the New York Rangers threw to the head of New Jersey Devils' defenseman Anton Volchenkov in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference Finals matchup looked dirty when it happened, and it appears the NHL agrees. According to Nick Kypreos of Canada's SportsNet, the NHL will hold a hearing with Prust Sunday.

The Rangers hold a tight 2-1 lead over their neighboring foes, so playing shorthanded could be venturing in to dangerous territory for the Blueshirts. It's hard to imagine Prust not missing at least one game, as you can see from the video below, in cased you missed it during Saturday afternoon's game.
