Fistric out for punching with helmet

DALLAS -- Mark Fistric and Eric Nystrom got in a fight, which is fine, but Fistric got hold of Nystrom's helmet and hit him with it. That's a no-no.

So Fistric got an extra penalty, a five-minute match, at 8:17 of the first period. It means that the Flames will get three extra minutes of power play time (and it's a major, so that time will stay there even if they score) midway through the first period.
