Carcillo sprains MCL in Flyers’ 5-1 win over Ottawa

The 5-1 rout against the Ottawa Senators on Monday at the Wells Fargo Center, wasn’t without casualty for the red-hot Flyers.

After missing a hit in second period of the then close contest, Flyers’ forward Dan Carcillo dropped to all fours. He was helped off the ice and didn’t return to the game. The team officially called it a lower body injury, with GM Paul Holmgren saying the truculent fourth-liner would miss two weeks with a sprained MCL.

No call ups are expected. However, with James van Riemsdyk filling in for injured Andreas Nodl (toe), the Flyers may have to play down a forward when the team faces the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday. There is no word yet on if Nodl will dress.

Carcillo has two points and 39 penalty minutes in 14 games this season.
