In case you didn’t know ...

• Carcillo, who has scored two goals in eight playoff games for New York, will be eligible to return in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals after having his 10-game suspension for official abuse reduced to six games.

• He also likes to fight. Carcillo once accumulated a career-best/league-high 324 penalty minutes in just 57 games with the Phoenix Coyotes in 2007-08. He also scored 13 goals that season.

• His nickname is “Car Bomb.” “I was at a golf tournament and they were trying to figure out a nickname and [former Philadelphia Flyer] Riley Cote came up with car bomb and it stuck ever since,” Carcillo said. “The way I play and my personality, you know something can set me off so that's why they came up with that nickname.”
