Braden Holtby

Anton Volchenkov will have a hearing with the NHL's player safety committee at some point Thursday, according to Tom Gulitti of The Record. Volchenkov received a five-minute elbow major and a game misconduct for an elbow to the head of Bruins forward Brad Marchand during the second period of Wednesday's 5-4 loss. There's no time for the hearing and it's not known whether it will be in person or via phone.

Here's the video of the hit (care of Puck Daddy):

The Devils simply do not give Johan Hedberg help.

Hedberg fell to 2-2-1 this season, as New Jersey surrendered four third-period goals in its 5-1 loss to the Caps on Saturday afternoon at Verizon Center.
