2010 Stanley Cup finals: Dan Carcillo may return for Game 2

Thumbnail image for Carcillo2.jpgHere are some minor injury updates and news for tonight’s Game 2 between the Flyers and Blackhawks.

  • Darren Dreger reports that Flyers super-pest Dan Carcillo is expected to be back in the orange tonight for Philadelphia. Take a look at Dreger’s Tweet. (That sounds a bit dirty, doesn’t it?)

Carcillo playing. Says he’s excited. Says he has a lot of pent up energy. Says he will play smart, but physical.

Eh, hearing that Carcillo has a lot of “pent-up energy?” is sort of troubling. He might not be an automatic choice for the “Ron Artest” of the NHL since he’s not quite as much of an impact player, but the former Coyote is one of the NHL’s true double-edged swords. It’s not always easy to tell if he’s worth the headaches, yet he definitely brings a unique skill set to the table.

One interesting caveat, though, is that Flyers coach Peter Laviolette did not confirm Carcillo would be in the lineup, according to ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun. Perhaps this is an example of some gamesmanship from the Flyers coach?

  • Hockey Night in Canada’s Elliotte Friedman reports that Flyers defenseman Lukas Krajicek said he’ll play tonight. Friedman also indicated that young forward James van Riemsdyk might be scratched in favor of Carcillo.
