The Calgary Flames were able to salvage a standings point thanks to a Mark Giordano goal that caught Ryan Miller by surprise, but the Vancouver Canucks ultimately won 2-1 in OT on Saturday.

This marks Giordano's eighth goal and 24th point of the season. He's actually on a two-game goal streak, as he notched a tally on just one SOG against the Flyers on Feb. 15. Saturday's goal was a great example of what can happen if you just throw the puck at the net ... albeit quickly.

The one exception though was a three-point game where Giordano had a goal and two assists. He has six goals and 22 points in 52 contests this season, which puts him on pace to fall below the 40-point mark after three consecutive campaigns where he reached that milestone.

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.

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.
