PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Flyers forward Dan Carcillo has been suspended two games for a hit on New Jersey's David Clarkson.

The league suspended Carcillo on Tuesday, forcing him out of the Flyers' upcoming games against the New York Islanders and Montreal Canadiens.

Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren says he's disappointed by the league's decision to suspend Carcillo for the hit in Sunday's 5-1 win over the Devils. Holmgren says the hit was clearly an accidental high stick.

The Flyers are tied with the Canadiens for the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference, two points ahead of eighth-place Boston.

Carcillo has 20 points and 196 penalty minutes in 72 games this season.
