Flames look for boost from Giordano's return against Flyers

CALGARY, Alberta -- The Calgary Flames will get their captain back for Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers at the Scotiabank Saddledome as they look to rebound from Sunday's 1-0 road loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Defenseman Mark Giordano was suspended for two games for kneeing forward Mikko Koivu late in Calgary's 2-0 win at home over the Minnesota Wild last Thursday.

Subsequently, the 35-year-old veteran was forced to watch from the press box as his teammates skated to a 5-2 victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday at the Saddledome before losing to their provincial rivals in Edmonton the next night.
