Just so we’re straight.

Break an opponent’s jaw with a late, dangerous hit and incur a two-game suspension for interference.

Jostle a linesman and get a 10-game ticket to the press box.

There you have the National Hockey League’s order of discipline.

Brandon Prust, whose hit sent the New York Rangers’ Derek Stepan for jaw surgery, will be eligible to return to the Montreal Canadiens’ lineup for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference final against the Rangers once he sits for two games, provided a sixth game is necessary.
