The Edmonton Oilers’ Anton Slepyshev had the only goal until the final seconds of play against the Calgary Flames in a split squad game contested in Calgary Monday night. Edmonton ended the game on top with a score of 2 – 1.

Slepyshev stood tall until the 18:57 minute mark of the third period when teammate Jere Sallinen scored a second goal. Mark Giordano kept the Flames from getting shutout with a power play goal nine seconds before the end of the show. In 11 games for the Oilers last year, Slepyshev failed to score a goal, but had one assist. Giordano scored 21 times in 82 games for the Flames.

Mark Giordano admitted he's a little anxious about Johnny Gaudreau's contract situation.

Giordano is referring to the fact that the Flames still haven't signed Gaudreau to a contract extension. "At the end of the day there’s always a little bit of anxiety," said Giordano. "We know what he is and what he means to our team and what kind of guy he is, and being optimistic as a teammate you hope it will work out. I know, as a friend of Johnny’s, I’m confident he’ll be done. There’s still time. I talk to him all the time through texts. He’s in a good mindset back home. Obviously as camp gets closer and closer the ball will get rolling even more."

Calgary GM Brad Treliving believes the Flames are close to hiring their next head coach.

"That's coming to a conclusion here rather quickly. We're hopeful to have that buttoned down fairly soon," Treliving said Monday. "We're down to the short strokes right now." He expects a new head coach to be in place before the NHL Draft on June 24.

The Calgary Flames are continuing through the process of hiring a head coach, but it doesn't sound like a decision is imminent.

"We’ve talked about a few guys. We’ll speak with a few more. It’s progressing," Flames GM Brad Treliving said. Former Wild coach Mike Yeo is presumably among the people that's been interviewed, based on an earlier report that the Flames asked Minnesota for permission to speak with him. Whoever the Flames hire will be replacing Bob Hartley, who had a 134-135-25 record in four seasons with Calgary.

It might be a while before the Calgary Flames settle on a head coach.

Flames GM Brad Treliving said he's not rushing to fill the vacancy. "It’s no different than building a team," Treliving said. "You’re trying to find a match and chemistry." The Flames recently asked for permission to speak to former Wild bench boss Mike Yeo.

The Calgary Flames have reportedly asked the Minnesota Wild for permission to speak to Mike Yeo.

The Wild fired Yeo, but he's still under contract with them, so that's why Calgary had to get their blessing first. Yeo spent parts of five seasons with Minnesota and had a 173-132-44 record with the squad. Minnesota made the playoffs for three straight years from 2013 through 2015, but never got very far in the postseason. Calgary is looking for a new bench boss after firing Bob Hartley.

If the Dallas Stars beat the St. Louis Blues in Game 7 on Wednesday, Dallas' first-round pick will go to the Calgary Flames.

That's a result of the Kris Russell trade, which sent a package to Calgary that included a conditional second round pick. That selection would be upgraded to a first rounder if Dallas made it to the Western Conference Final and Russell plays in at least half of the Stars' first and second round games. Dallas has consistently been using Russell in the playoffs, so all that remains is to see if the Stars can overcome the Blues.

The firing of coach Bob Hartley was "an eye-opener for a lot of our players," according to Mark Giordano.

Hartley spent four seasons with Calgary and the team posted a 134-135-25 over that span. The Flames failed to make the playoffs in three of those four campaigns, including the 2015-16 season. "You always just feel terrible as a player. There’s no other way to describe it, because you feel like you let someone down," Giordano said. "I’ve been in this situation before, but being the captain of the team, it’s a little bit different. And having a good working relationship and off-ice relationship with Bob, as well, it’s tough. I talked to Bob and thanked him for everything."

Mark Giordano has been named a finalist for the 2016 NHL Foundation Player Award.

The award, which comes with a prize of $25K, is presented to "an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey; commitment, perseverance and teamwork, to enrich the lives of people in his community." Along with his wife "Team Giordano" works with the Calgary Board of Education to create a unique community program. In turn Team Giordano provides resources to four low-income Calgary schools, including school supplies like computers and journals plus floor hockey equipment. The two-year-old program has impacted over 1,400 kids in the area while Giordano himself has donated over $200K. Should the Giordano's win, they'll become the second Flames to win and the first since Jarome Iginla in 2004.
