The NHL has suspended Flyers forward Dan Carcillo four games for his role in a fight that earned him 19 penalty minutes and a game misconduct. Carcillo landed a big punch on Washington’s Matt Bradley as he dropped his gloves Saturday night. Following Carcillo’s punch, Bradley fell to the ice and left the game. Despite being in the process of dropping his gloves, Bradley wasn’t penalized. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren said on Sunday that he did not agree with the decision.

Red Deer College Queens second-year forward Karla Bourke was basically a one-woman show on Thursday, scoring four goals and assisting on the other in a 5-1 win over the front-running Mount Royal Cougars in an Alberta Colleges Women’s Hockey League contest at the Arena. The clubs were scheduled to meet again on Friday in Calgary but the game was postponed due to bad road conditions. The Queens will return to action in January.
