Brandon Prust has received a one-game suspension for elbowing New Jersey's Anton Volchenkov in the back of the head.

The incident occurred in the second period of Game 3. "While it’s true that Volchenkov turns away from Prust in order to avoid being checked, his doing so does not cause an otherwise legal hit to become an elbow to the head," disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan said. "Rather, Prust reacts to Volchenkov’s evasive move by flaring his elbow. In fact, it’s not until after he realizes that he will not make contact that Prust extends and raises his elbow to clip Volchenkov’s head." Prust will miss Monday's game, but he will be eligible to return on Wednesday.

Tuukka Rask was pulled during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Rask gave up four goals on just 13 shots in 31:55 of action. The Bruins managed to make the game close after he was yanked, but they couldn't complete the comeback. Rask now has a 3-2 record with a 2.90 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage this postseason. Anton Khudobin, who entered the game in relief of Rask, turned aside all eight shots he faced. Despite the loss, the Bruins still lead the best-of-seven series 3-2. Game 6 will be played in Toronto on Monday night. Expect Rask to be back between the pipes for that one.

He finished the game with three shots on goal and one blocked shot in 10:01 of ice time. The 28-year-old has three goals and one assist in five games this postseason. The Leafs did their best to blow Game 5 by taking the final four penalties of the game, but they managed to hang on to force a sixth game. Game 6 will be played in Toronto on Monday night. The Leafs trail the best-of-seven series 3-2.

Philadelphia did not provide an update on the status of Ivan Provorov, which is a little concerning.

Provorov went hard into the boards on Friday night just before Sean Couturier's goal and may have hurt his shoulder. He was back on the ice for his next shift for a few seconds before he left following Michal Neuvirth's glove save on Sidney Crosby. An update on Provorov may not come until close to puck drop on Sunday afternoon. He would be a big loss for the Flyers if he is unable to play in Game 6.
