Carcillo accuses Savard of biting

By Erin Brown

Their encounter does not hold up to the brawls of the 1970s, but Daniel Carcillo and Marc Savard may have added their place in the Philadelphia Flyers-Boston Bruins rivalry.

During Monday's contest between the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins, Philadelphia's Carcillo accused Boston's Savard of biting his finger in a scrum.

At 5:55 of the second period, Savard tried to swipe at a puck gloved by Flyers goalie Brian Boucher . That led to defenseman Kimmo Timonen and Carcillo going after the Boston forward. When Carcillo put Savard in a headlock, his glove fell off.

After linesmen broke up the incident, the Flyers winger held out his index finger, suggesting Savard bit him.

Savard ended up with a slashing minor, while Carcillo was sent back to the bench to tend to his hand.

Flyers, Bruins charge out of the gate in OT

One has to wonder if NBC sent a message to the Philadelphia Flyers and Boston Bruins dressing rooms prior to overtime starting in Game 1.

Wrap it up, guys.

Boston came out flying, peppering Flyers goalie Brian Boucher with six shots in two minutes. Just five minutes in, the teams had combined for 10 shots and a few odd-man rushes including a breakaway by Flyers winger Daniel Carcillo .

By the time Boston's Marc Savard scored at 13:52 to give his team the 5-4 win, the squads had 17 shots.

What's the rush?

The Kentucky Derby takes place later Saturday afternoon. It's an event televised by NBC. A quick glance of a television programming guide shows the horses aren't scheduled to air until 4 p.m. Post time is 6:24 p.m.

In 2007, the network cut away from an overtime contest between the Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres, in order to show an hour of pre-race coverage. The rest of the game was picked up by Versus, but that's quite a change from appearing on a network that is in 99 percent of American homes.
