Flyers motivated to bounce back after loss to Habs

MONTREAL (AP) -As if Daniel Carcillo and the Philadelphia Flyers needed extra motivation to bounce back in the Eastern Conference finals after an embarrassing loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

The Flyers' agitator won't soon forget how Canadiens star forward Michael Cammalleri smiled and stuck his tongue out at him as a linesman was breaking up a skirmish between the two during Philadelphia's 5-1 loss on Thursday.

After practice Friday, Carcillo called Cammalleri "a homer," while noting the last time someone stuck his tongue out at him was "probably a girl - a pretty one, too."

The Flyers are vowing to play better, while the Canadiens suddenly have their swagger back in cutting the series lead to 2-1 heading into Game 4 at Montreal on Saturday.
