TORONTO - Philadelphia Flyers' forward Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for one game and Flyers' coach John Stevens has been fined $10,000, the NHL announced Thursday.

Carcillo's suspension stems from an incident late Wednesday in Game 1 of the Flyers' Eastern Conference quarter-final series against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

With seven seconds remaining in the third period and the Penguins leading 4-1, Carcillo delivered a blow to the head of Maxime Talbot directly off a face-off.

Talbot did not sustain an injury and no penalty was assessed on the play.

"We held a conference call Monday with the General Managers and Coaches of playoff teams and told them explicitly we would not tolerate attempts by clubs to 'send a message' late in a game when the outcome had been determined," said Colin Campbell, the NHL's Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations.

"Organizations - players and coaches - will be held accountable for such actions."

Carcillo's suspension will be served on Friday night when the Flyers meet the Penguins in Game 2 of the series.
