In the annals of bashing people with helmets, this one is pretty tame. Find Rick Tocchet vs. Dale Hunter clip if you want to see what an obvious "helmet used as blunt weapon" looks like. This could have been what it looks like, but just as easily could have been Fistric trying to get going and ditch the helmet in one motion.
I don;t think Fistric meant to get Nystrom with the helmet after he tore it off. I think it's a lame penalty to call "attempt to injurt". Maybe if Fistric hit him over and over. Fistric gets the decision here, with or without helmet. Nystrom wanted a fight, Fistric gave it to him.
fistrich with his visor on then hits the other player with his own helmet and this is a win for fistric,get out of town.oh ya and fistric tackles him after 3 nuggies that miss,this wasnt a scrap it was a joke.
"I've never seen that."
"First time I've ever seen that in 20 years of being a fan"
Bull****. Not that people have never seen it, bull**** they're longtime fans. Anyone who has watched hockey for at least 5 years saw Evgeni Artyukhin rip a guy's helmet off and beat him with it 3 or 4 times when he was a rookie with Tampa. It was all over the hockey websites. Couldn't have been missed if you were a fan.
