Carcillo suspended one game

PHILADELPHIA Flyers forward Daniel Carcillo was suspended for one game and coach John Stevens was fined US$10,000 by the NHL on Thursday, a day after Carcillo hit Pittsburgh's Maxime Talbot in the head in a game.

With 7 seconds left in the Penguins' 4-1 victory on Wednesday, Carcillo delivered a blow to Talbot's head directly off a faceoff. Talbot wasn't hurt and Carcillo was not penalized for the hit.

"We held a conference call on Monday with the general managers and coaches of playoff teams and told them explicitly we would not tolerate attempts by clubs to 'send a message' late in a game when the outcome had been determined," said Colin Campbell, the NHL's senior executive vice president of hockey operations.

"Organizations - players and coaches - will be held accountable for such actions."

Carcillo will miss Game 2 in Pittsburgh.

In other off-ice news, the Minnesota Wild fired General Manager Doug Risebrough on Thursday, five days after Jacques Lemaire resigned as coach.

"I have agonized over this decision for some time now, but ultimately, I reached the conclusion that change was in order," Minnesota owner Craig Leipold said.

"The search for a new general manager will begin immediately. The first order of business for the incoming general manager will be to select the next head coach.
