Carcillo's suspension

Before he took a face-off against Talbot, Carcillo said he was given a warning.

"The ref came up to me and said not to do anything, so it'd be pretty dumb for me to go out and butt-end someone in the back of the head, which I didn't do," he said. "I knew the refs were looking, and I just clipped him and he went down."

It was good to see Flyers coach John Stevens also take a hit in the pocketbook for this one, as he was the one who dictated one of his key goons take his first faceoff of the game on the penalty kill with seven seconds left in the game.

Some Broad Street hockey for you right there.

Daniel Carcillo is far from a faceoff ace – he's taken 20 all season – and I'm not surprised the linesman warned him not to do anything stupid. That he didn't listen, regardless of what he hit Talbot with, would have resulted in a longer suspension had I been handing it out.

What he and his coach did was the definition of "pretty dumb."
