Calgary Flames defenseman Mark Giordano faces a fine hearing with the National Hockey League's Department of Player Safety Tuesday evening for a slew-footing incident in a game Sunday against the Dallas Stars.

Giordano was assessed a tripping penalty against Antoine Roussel at the 11:53 mark of the second period in that game.

The Flames defeated the Stars, 4-3.

Under the terms of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, any fine that could exceed $5,000 requires a hearing.

Quote of the Day

If you want to prove people wrong, you've just got to go out and do it. Yeah, we blew 3-2 series leads the last two years, but no one is going remember that if we go out there on Saturday night and beat these guys and go play in the Stanley Cup Final. We need to get back to work and we'll start to do that tomorrow.
