Flyers F Carcillo suspended 4 games

The NHL has suspended Flyers forward Dan Carcillo four games for

his role in a fight that earned him a whopping 19 penalty minutes

and a game misconduct.

Carcillo landed a big punch on Washington’s Matt Bradley as he

dropped his gloves Saturday night. Following Carcillo’s punch,

Bradley fell to the ice and left the game. Despite being in the

process of dropping his gloves, Bradley wasn’t penalized.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said on Sunday that he did

not agree with the decision.

Carcillo was tagged with 2 minutes for cross-checking, 2 minutes

for instigation, 5 minutes for fighting, a 10-minute misconduct and

a game misconduct in Philadelphia’s 8-2 loss.

He will start the suspension beginning Monday at Montreal.
