NEWARK, N.J. - Rangers forward Brandon Prust could be facing punishment for an elbow to the back of the head of New Jersey Devils defenceman Anton Volchenkov during the second period of New York's 3-0 victory on Saturday in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The two players came together along the side wall in the New Jersey end, and Prust pulled his arm back and let his elbow fly into the back of Volchenkov's helmet. Volchenkov dropped to the ice and stayed down briefly before getting back to his skates and returning to the bench.

"It was pretty hard, but I finished the game," Volchenkov said. "It's not bad."

No penalty was called on the play, and Volchenkov was on the ice for his next shift.
