NHL Commissioner Bettman cuts Rangers Carcillo's suspension to 6 games from 10

NEW YORK, N.Y. - 0NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman has cut Daniel Carcillo's suspension from 10 games to six, meaning the New York Rangers enforcer could play in the Stanley Cup finals should the club elect to return him to the lineup.

The commissioner made the change Tuesday after holding a hearing with Carcillo on Friday.

Carcillo was suspended on May 23 after he appeared to twice elbow linesman Scott Driscoll, who was trying to keep Carcillo away from a fight, during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. The original ban would have kept him completely out of the Cup finals, even if the series goes the full seven games.

Now Carcillo, who has already served three games, is eligible to play in Game 4.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
