Wow.  Every player wants to go into the NHL history books for something they did on the ice but I’m sure Dan Carcillo would rather be remembered in a different way.

The Philadelphia Flyers winger delivered a sucker punch to Washington Capitals’ Matt Bradley which has ended up costing him 4 days in suspensions plus a whopping 29 minutes in penalties.  What a bad night for Philly since they lost 8-2 on home ice.

Carcillo is “the first player in NHL history to draw 29 minutes in penalties without drawing a single minute from his opponent.”  What an honor!

If this wasn’t this clown’s third suspension, I might be a little more sympathetic but if you’re gonna act like a goon, you gotta learn to take the penalties.

You be the judge – was the punishment excessive?  Puck Daddy points out that Scott Walker got away with a similar punch during the last post-season so there is a valid argument about the continued unfairness in NHL justice.  Either way, here’s the video:
