Philadelphia Flyers forward Daniel Carcillo’s confrontation with officials between periods of Game 4 of the second round drew a two-game ban for the start of next season, the league announced on Tuesday.

"Between the first and second period, while off-ice and outside the officials' locker room, Mr. Carcillo engaged in aggressive behavior and inappropriate conduct directed at the officials," NHL senior vice president of hockey operations Mike Murphy said in a statement. "While Mr. Carcillo acknowledged in the hearing that he regrets his actions outside of the officials' room, there can be no defense for his conduct.”

Carcillo had a hearing with NHL officials on Friday. The Flyers lost the game where he confronted officials --- the game was refereed by Steve Kozari and Stephen Walkom --- as the Boston Bruins completed a sweep with a 5-1 victory. Carcillo was called for cross checking in the first period and Boston's Milan Lucic scored on the ensuing power play for the game's first goal. 

Carcillo’s conduct before the start of the second period when he chastised linesman Brian Murphy was also reviewed.

“While the verbal abuse may have been worthy of a penalty, there is no evidence that Carcillo's actions merit supplemental discipline," Murphy said.

Carcillo was not penalized for that confrontation, although he drew another cross checking call in the second period.

When it comes to the Philadelphia Flyers franchise, they don't care about stanley cups, just dirty players :)

a Penguins fan, who's team employs Matt Cooke, saying perfect for Philly just "another goon"
I don't condone Matt Cooke's play at all.  As far as I'm concerned, he should be cut.  I wouldn't be surprised to see the Flyers sign him then.  At least we have a goalie that's worth something.  Keep trying to stick Boucher in the net and you'll never win anything.  Bernie Parent could still play better than the 20 goalies your squad has run out there since Hextall.

A Sabres Fan saying it doesn't matter, the Flyers continue to get bounced from the playoffs & a Penguins fan, who's team employs Matt Cooke, saying perfect for Philly just "another goon" ...hypocritical or ironic..you be the judge!

I hope the Flyers lock Carcillo up for another 10 years... he's perfect for Philly.  He's just another goon.

Anyone who watches this clown play, knows he is a loose cannon waiting to blow.  He did show flashes of offensive skill, but can't score when your in the box.

If I was the Flyer Owner I would be begging the NL to give him a lifetime ban. Another unstable punk making the league look like nothing more than a second rate sport.

I don't blame Cacrillo for being upset; he got called for two of the cheapest penalities during the game. The referees were almost looking for something to call - and now I know why.

While I don't think he should have dressed in front of Zherdev the NHL, if honest, would look into those calls. Keep the suspension but it takes two to tango and the referees are not blameless.
