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

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
