You knew there was going to be some fireworks between the Flyers and Bruins. It was inevitable. I never would have guessed that Marc Savard would be at the center of it.
As the series heads back to Philadelphia Dan Carcillo is vowing to keep the pressure on Savard, aiming to match up with him as much as possible. What’s interesting is that Carcillo says he’s going to let his actions speak for him:
“I don’t know, we’ll see what happens,” Carcillo said following the Flyers game-day skate in advance of Wednesday’s all-important Game 3. “I’m not going to talk too much.”
Savard was accused of biting Carcillo during a scrum in the second period Monday, although there’s no way to tell whether that happened or not. Of course, Carcillo’s forearm whack to the side of the head of Savard didn’t exactly place him in the good graces of the Bruins, so it will be interesting to see how the team responds to all of this chatter back and forth.
Playing in front of the home crowd, I’m expecting an amped up Carcillo to do something violent, energetic and perhaps a bit dumb.
