Giordano status unclear after undisclosed injury

Watch as Calgary Flames captain Mark Giordano is injured as the Flames score an empty net goal against the New Jersey Devils.

Calgary Flames defenceman Mark Giordano suffered an undisclosed injury in the final seconds of Wednesday’s game when he was knocked down to the ice awkwardly by New Jersey Devils forward Steve Bernier.

Giordano headed right to the dressing room after T.J. Brodie helped seal a 3-1 victory for Calgary with a shorthanded empty-net goal.

Following the game, Flames coach Bob Harley was unclear about the severity of the injury.
