Carcillo was a healthy scratch in the first two games of the series before playing in Games 3 and 4. J.T. Miller replaced Carcillo for the past two games but will sit out Game 7.
Carcillo, who played for the Flyers from 2008-11, was inserted into New York's lineup for the first two games of the series in Philadelphia and had one goal and six penalty minutes. Seeing the first playoff action of his NHL career, Miller had two assists in two games against the Flyers.
You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
