PHILADELPHIA - 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.

Carcillo was given two minutes for cross-checking, two minutes for instigating, five minutes for fighting, a 10-minute misconduct and a game misconduct in Philadelphia's 8-2 loss.

He will start the suspension beginning Monday at Montreal.
