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.
He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
