Carcillo's suspension reduced to six games
The commissioner made the change Tuesday after holding a hearing with Carcillo on Friday.
Carcillo was suspended on May 23 after he appeared to twice elbow linesman Scott Driscoll, who was trying to keep Carcillo away from a fight, during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals. The original ban would have kept him completely out of the Cup finals, even if the series goes the full seven games.
Now Carcillo, who has already served three games, is eligible to play in Game 4.
