Flames' Lomberg suspended one game for instigating

Calgary Flames forward Ryan Lomberg has been suspended one game and coach Bill Peters was fined $10,000 for an incident at the end of Thursday's game against the visiting Minnesota Wild.

Lomberg came over the boards after Minnesota defenseman Matt Dumba with 43 seconds left in the contest. Dumba covered up as Lomberg threw a series of punches at him before the linesmen were able to separate the pair.

Dumba had leveled Calgary center Mikael Backlund with a hard check seconds earlier.

According to NHL rules, instigating in the final five minutes calls for an automatic suspension as well as the fine for the team's coach.

The NHL said that Flames captain Mark Giordano will have a hearing for kneeing Minnesota captain Mikko Koivu earlier in the third period. Giordano received a tripping penalty.

The Flames won the game 2-0.
