Flyers left winger Dan Carcillo was fined a reported $2,500 by the NHL Friday for a throat-slash gesture he made toward the Toronto bench after scoring Wednesday.
“You can’t do that kind of stuff, so I’m not really surprised,” said Carcillo, whose team has a rematch with the Maple Leafs Thursday in Toronto. “Their assistant coach kind of started chirping. I got caught up in the moment in what happened to Richie.”
He was referring to the Leafs making runs at captain Mike Richards.
