Philadelphia Flyers forward Dan Carcillo will not be suspended for shoving linesman Greg Devorski during Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Boston Bruins.

''I have spoken to Stephen Walkom about the play,'' NHL disciplinarian Colin Campbell said in an e-mail to CSNPhilly.com.

''And IF Greg Devorski, who was the linesman with Carcillo, decided Carcillo needed discipline, they could apply three, 10 or 20 games themselves under Rule 41, Abuse of Officials. They decided not to and I am fine with their decision.''

Carcillo was handed a 10-minute misconduct midway through the third period after he pushing off Devorski, who was trying to separate the Flyer forward and Boston's Matt Hunwick from fighting.
