Dan Carcillo has played most of his Stanley Cup playoff games in a Philadelphia uniform, but when you return as an enemy, Flyers fans let you know. And after Carcillo scored in Game 4, his celebration was perfect.
Professional antagonist Dan Carcillo didn’t play in either of the first two games for New York against Philadelphia, but we’re sure glad Rangers coach Alain Vigneault dressed him for Game 3 in Philadelphia.
Carcillo, who’s played 33 of his 38 career playoff games in a Flyers uniform, had taken a hooking penalty midway through the third period when his Rangers led 3-1. It set the table for the Flyers to get back into it, but after they failed to convert on the man advantage, Carcillo increased the lead to three – and rubbed the city of Philadelphia’s face in it.
There is just so much hate to love in this clip:
The Rangers won 4-1 on the road to take a lead in the series and in his 8:57 of ice, Carcillo provided the energy he’s out there to do. This goal may have locked him in for a Game 4 appearance.
