via Jesse Rogers of ESPN Chicago, “There is no way I’ll ever conform or change my game just because how tight the game is being called now,” Carcillo said Wednesday after practice in South Florida.
Carcillo was suspended after boarding Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Joni Pitkanen last Friday in a 3-0 Hurricanes win.
“It’s Joni Pitkanen,” Carcillo said. “Ask around the league. He’s a big guy but he doesn’t play like it.”
No penalty was called on the play but the NHL reviewed the tape and determined the hit was questionable and cited Carcillo’s history as part of the suspension. This was the fifth time in his career he’s been suspended, but the first for an illegal check.
“If I change my game I won’t be playing in this league anymore,” Carcillo continued. “The way the game is being played now, it’s just a matter of time before something happens. It’s in the past now but (I) have to move forward. It was a quick play, it happened and that’s that.”
