With Friday's news concerning Mark Giordano, it's very clear the Flames will have to make due without one of their top minute eaters for an extended period of time. Giordano was second on the team with an average of over 22 minutes of ice time per game, something that is not easily replaced. Tonight, Calgary plays their second game minus Gio when they take on Edmonton Oilers for the second time this year (8 pm, CBC and Sportsnet 960).

Rhett Warrener reported this morning that Cory Sarich has asked the Calgary Flames for a trade. Of course, there's a good chance he Flames have been trying to do that for the last year or two and have been unable to find any takers for Sarich's $3.6M cap hit.

Aside from the final five minutes of the hockey game, the Calgary Flames played one of their more controlling games of the season on Thursday night against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Unfortunately for the Flames, the final five minutes was enough for them to scuttle all the prior positives as Calgary coughed up a pair of goals and ended up falling 4-3 in a shootout at the hands of the Blue Jackets.
