Clarkson said the two wound up grabbing onto each other after the altercation.
"He apologized," Clarkson said.
Carcillo said his stick rode up off another stick and clipped Clarkson in the eyebrow.
"What happened, happened. I didn't mean to do it," Carcillo told the Camden Courier-Post of the Clarkson incident.
Clarkson said he knows Carcillo from back home in Toronto and can understand that it was an accident.
"I think the way I play, too, I would never say, 'This guy should be suspended.' I don't think I would ever say that about another player," Clarkson said.
"I don't know what Colin Campbell is going to decide. They've done a good job, I think, of keeping things pretty clean and doing their best to make it as safe as they can. I'm sure they'll make the right decision."
Clarkson, of course, plays on the edge.
"I think I'm a guy who plays on the edge but I've never been suspended in my NHL career. If I want to fight a guy, I'm going to drop my stuff and grab him. I've seen a lot of guys I wanted to fight but I've never thrown a punch first. I usually ask because I don't want to get suspended.
"I do think I play on the edge a little bit. Or try to."
