Flames’ Lomberg suspended one game
Calgary forward Ryan Lomberg has been suspended for a game and head coach Bill Peters fined US$10,000 by the NHL for an incident that occurred at the end of Thursday’s 2-0 win over the Minnesota Wild. Lomberg went after Matt Dumba after the Wild defenceman steamrolled Flames centre Mikael Backlund in the final minute of regulation.
Instigating in the final five minutes of the game resulted in Lomberg’s automatic suspension and Peters’ fine.
Flames defenceman and team captain Mark Giordano was suspended two games by the league Friday night for a kneeing incident that occurred during Thursday’s game against the Wild.
