Blackhawks' Carcillo suspended two games for illegal check on Pitkanen

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Chicago Blackhawks forward Dan Carcillo was suspended for two games by the NHL on Saturday due to an illegal check on Hurricanes defenceman Joni Pitkanen the previous night in Carolina.

Carcillo was penalized for a hit from behind at 1:47 of the first period which sent Pitkanen into the end boards. Carcillo was not whistled for a penalty on the play.

He missed the Blackhawks' game against Columbus on Saturday night and will also sit out Monday against Nashville.

Quote of the Day

Obviously a lot happened in a short period of time. At the end of the day, considering everything I went through, I really felt close to my teammates and I really feel like what we accomplished, I know we didn't win it all. ... I'm really proud of how we got there and what we did once we got there.
