Breaking #Isles news: Rick DiPietro to have surgery Tuesday to repair a sports hernia. Season likely done.
Best-case scenario for DiPietro is back by beginning of April. He’s played 47 games the last 4 seasons. This is his 6th surgery since 2008.

I know, Komisarek didn’t mean to do it.
It’s not often we see a fight so up close but NBC had the camera in the right position today for a bout between Carcillo and Dowell.
from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,
The Flyers will anxiously await word today, as they prepare for the Canadiens, about the status of forward Dan Carcillo.
Carcillo, who left Monday’s 5-1 win over Ottawa just a few minutes into the second period, will miss at least two weeks with what appears to be an MCL sprain.
But it could be worse.
The Flyers don’t know exactly what is wrong with Carcillo’s knee, as only so much can be determined without an MRI. He will have that MRI of done today in Philadelphia if there is not too much swelling to try and determine the exact extent of his injury.
from Cam Cole of the Vancouver Sun,
Don’t drop what you’re doing, because it’s not that important—just another disposable hockey player’s head, and what’s one more or less in the grand scheme of things?
But when you’ve got a minute, You-Tube the Daniel Carcillo hit on Ruslan Fedotenko from Thursday night’s Philly-Rangers game.
Turn the volume up, because you’re not going to want to miss the Philadelphia Comcast crew’s analysis of the Flyers’ Carcillo catching Fedotenko with his head down, leaving his feet, politely extending an elbow, and clocking the Ukrainian forward coming out of the Rangers’ zone.
“I don’t think that was a cheap shot,” says the colour man, that colour being primarily orange, with black and white trim. “Fedotenko’s falling, so Carcillo basically can’t control his body at that point, he’s coming in to take the body ... I know why the referee didn’t raise his arm. That was a good hit.”

from Chuck Gormley of Flyer Files,
“Do I have a problem with it? Sure, why wouldn’t I?” Tortorella said. “We get these (head shot) tapes sent to us during the summer and at the beginning of the year. Why send them? It’s a waste.”
Replays indicate Carcillo got his elbow up on Fedotenko, who was falling to the ice when contact was made.
“I saw him in the middle of the ice and the puck was there,” Carcillo said. “He kind of went down right when I got to him. My elbows were in. I know it looks bad, but I didn’t try to hit his head or anything.
“I don’t think anything (Tortorella) says is going to change anything. It is what it is. It’s not like I took strides toward him. I know they’re cracking down on that, so I imagine I’ll get a phone call.”
Ruslan Fedotenko was OK after staying on the ice for a bit. Not penalty to Carcillo.
The Philadelphia Flyers have signed 6’0’’, 205-pound left wing Dan Carcillo to a one-year contract, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.
“We are happy to have Dan under contract for the 2010-11 season,” said Holmgren.
Too bad Dan Carcillo hit his own teammate, Jeff Carter.
Watch the CBC feed of the hit.
Don Cherry on the actions of Dan Carcillo.
“The one thing is that, for me, we’re up 2-0 in this series. We won two big home games. We’ve got to stay focused here and stay focused on our game and not be distracted by what’s being said. o me, it’s pretty obvious. The guy (Carcillo) yesterday, when you watch replays, everybody’s seen how he embellishes. So it’s hard to believe a guy when you see stuff that he does. We really don’t pay attention to that. We’re focused on staying the course here and doing our job and that’s the main thing.”

Last time I have been bit was in grade school. It is not a good feeling it is pretty cowardly.
-Dan Carcillo of the Philadelphia Flyers who claims Marc Savard of the Bruins bit him tonight during a scrum. More from Chuck Gormley of Flyer Files.
Watch Carcillo post-game as he talks about the incident.
added 12:35am 5/3/10, from James Murphy of NESN,
Savard gave his version of what may as well be known as BiteGate for the remainder of this series.
“He pummeled my face, pulled on my teeth, so I guess that’s biting when a guy tries to pull your teeth out like [he did],” Savard claimed. “I don’t know. I don’t see how that is biting. Yeah, I mean, he embellishes stuff. Obviously, under the pile, you try to pull out my front teeth, so if that’s a bite then I don’t know what to say.”
Earlier in the game, Carcillo, supposedly one of the toughest guys in the game, pretended to be hit in the face by Mike Mottau’s stick. Replays showed it wasn’t even close, even though Carcillo jerked his head back like he’d been bitten by a mamba. No penalty was called—indeed it was a rare moment the undisciplined Flyers weren’t whistled for an infraction Sunday as they took eight minors through the first two periods—which is perhaps the only reason the hockey gods, if they exist, allowed Carcillo his moment of joy 3:35 into the first overtime period.
Still, it’s the kind of play, especially for a tough guy, that is the hockey equivalent of knocking down an old lady for her purse.

Carcillo gets two game suspension for his unintentional high stick on Sunday against New Jersey.
TORONTO (March 30, 2010) – Philadelphia Flyers forward Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for two games, without pay, as a result of delivering a cross check to the head of New Jersey forward David Clarkson during NHL Game #1125, March 28, the National Hockey League announced today.
The incident took place at 15:14 of the third period and Carcillo was assessed a match penalty and game misconduct for attempt to injure.
Carcillo, who was suspended for four games on December 5, 2009, is considered a repeat offender under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Accordingly, he forfeits $21,798.78 in salary, based on the number of games in the season (82), rather than the number of days (193). The money goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.
Anton Volchenkov hit on Dan Carcillo tonight. Under the proposed new rules, is this a head shot?
I am going to say no because the hit was not on a “unsuspecting player”.

via Tim Panaccio of CSNPhilly,
Flyers forward Dan Carcillo will not be suspended for pushing off linesman Greg Devorski during an attempt to fight Boston’s Matt Hunwick’s during Thursday’s 5-1 loss to the Bruins.
Devorski tried to separate the two late in the two period when Carcillo struck him.
Ironically, the decision was left in left Devorski’s hands, and he cut the Flyers a break, CSNPhilly.com was told.
“I have spoken to Stephen Walkom about the play,” said Colin Campbell, the NHL’s Lord of Discipline in an e-mail to CSNPhilly.com.
“And IF Greg Devorski, who was the linesman with Carcillo, decided Carcillo needed discipline, they could apply three, 10 or 20 games themselves under Rule 41, Abuse of Officials. They decided not to and I am fine with their decision.”
from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
“It was a bit unsportsmanlike,” defenceman Ian White said of Carcillo’s act. “He’s known a bit for that. But, hey, he scored a goal and got a fight.”
Carcillo had a simple explanation for his actions.
“I just looked at (Colton) Orr a bit,” the Flyers pugilist said. “He had been running around at us doing his thing. I tried fighting him on that shift. When it didn’t happen, I scored.”
Then came Carcillo’s post-goal antics, aimed at Orr.
“It doesn’t even deserve a comment,” Orr said.
While his players may have been angry at Carcillo, Wilson was more steamed at his own team.

Dan Carcillo was suspended for four games today by the NHL.
added 2:12pm, from Kevin Kurz of PhiladelphiaFlyers.com,
General manager Paul Holmgren issued the following statement on Sunday regarding the suspension:
“Decisions come down from the league…do I agree with them all? No. I certainly do not agree with this one. We do not have a lot of recourse in this situation. Dan will serve his suspension, and we will move on.”
How is this for a boxscore… Carcillo decides to act crazy on Matt Bradley of the Capitals.
So far the penalties have cost the Flyers 2 goals. Caps up 3-1.
