Dizzy Lecavalier not seeking revenge
Time could run out on Ville Nieminen and the Flames. Plus, notes on Vincent Lecavalier, John Grahame and more.
You won't find Niemo in Game 5
Some time before Thursday night's Game 5 at Tampa, Fla., the NHL will suspend Calgary Flames left winger Ville Nieminen for his hit from behind on Tampa Bay Lightning center Vincent Lecavalier late in Game 4.
The question remains whether the pesky forward will receive more than one game for his poor judgment because Nieminen is a repeat offender. He was suspended one game for a more flagrant and senseless elbow that leveled Detroit goaltender Curtis Joseph late in Game 4 of the second round.
