Nystrom fuels Flames past Stars

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) — Eric Nystrom scored the go-ahead goal
with 8:14 left to lift the Calgary Flames to a 2-1 victory over
the Dallas Stars on Wednesday night.

Rookie center Warren Peters pressured Fabian Brunnstrom into
giving up the puck in his zone. Dustin Boyd kept the play onside
and swept a pass to Nystrom as he broke to the net.

Nystrom moved in and fired a shot from 20 feet that squeezed
under the arm of goalie Marty Turco. Nystrom’s fourth goal of
the season was his first in 14 games.
