Daniel Carcillo last scored a playoff goal on April 26, 2011 when he was a member of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Three teams later, you can excuse the Rangers forward if he felt a little exuberant after scoring a goal during New York's 4-1 win over the Flyers in Game 3. It wasn't just a big goal for Carcillo, who was making his 2014 playoff debut, it was also one for his team.
Aside from scoring in a big spot, Carcillo felt a bit of redemption.
Minutes earlier, Carcillo took a hit up high from Matt Read that went uncalled. He then found himself in the penalty box with 11:24 to go in the third period and the Rangers up 3-1. New York would kill it and not long after Carcillo would close out Game 3.
Steve Mason was well enough to back up and later replace Ray Emery for the Flyers. It'll probably be his net here on out as Philadelphia attempt to even the series Friday night in Game 4.
