BOSTON - Flyers left winger Dan Carcillo, who injured his right knee in Friday's 5-4 overime win over the Bruins, said he felt fine in Monday's morning skate and hinted strongly that he will play tonight in Game 5 of the conference semifinals in Boston.

It will be a game-time decision, but, based on Carcillo's comments, he will play.

   Coach Peter Laviolette, whose team faces a 3-1 series deficit, said the first five minutes tonight will be the key.

Just four Flyers enter Game 5 as “plus” players:: Matt Carle (plus-4), Chris Pronger (plus-2), Claude Giroux (plus-1) and Simon Gagne (plus-1). Elevens Bruins have “plus” ratings.
