NEW YORK -- New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault wouldn't reveal his lineup for Game 4 of their Eastern Conference First Round series against the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday at Wells Fargo Center.
But every indication is that forward Daniel Carcillo will remain in the lineup and continue to add fuel to an already fiery matchup.
After being a healthy scratch for the first two games, Carcillo made an impact against his former team in Game 3 on Tuesday. Skating on a line with Brad Richards and Carl Hagelin, he played his signature physical style and took two penalties before scoring the final goal in a 4-1 win that allowed New York to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 series.
Carcillo was excited about the goal but was more concerned about the two penalties, especially considering the Rangers have preached discipline throughout the series.
"I know my role. I said it when I got here. No matter where I am in the lineup, to be an energy guy, a role guy, be physical, wear the other team down," Carcillo said after practice Thursday. "I just have to be smarter going forward with the stuff after the whistle. We addressed that today."
