Carcillo Faces Disciplinary Action

via NHL.com,

Chicago Blackhawks forward Daniel Carcillo will have a disciplinary hearing Saturday afternoon because of a hit in a game Friday night on Carolina defenseman Joni Pitkanen.

Carcillo hit Pitkanen behind the Carolina net 1:45 into the contest and was not penalized on the play.

I saw the hit live last night and thought it should have been a penalty.  Basically Carcillo gave on of those pushes to the side/back of Pitkanen that caused him to go into the back boards heavily.

added 4:43pm, video of the hit can be watched below…

added 9:16pm, Carcillo received a two game suspension, Rob Blake video is the 2nd one below…

Yet the MSM thought he was a good depth signing…

Coming straight from the Konopka on Anisimov video, I can safely say that this was a much worse infraction. 

Regardless of supplemental discipline (and I believe Carcillo should be suspended), I think the league needs to work on the reffing standard. Konopka got five, ten, and a game for what should have been a minor at best while Carcillo got nothing for what very well should have been a major for his reckless behavior.

Dangerous play by a known dirtbag.  He will be suspended again.
