Audio: Quick hits with Mark Giordano

Flames captain Mark Giordano joined LA Kings Insider from a busy Calgary dressing room Thursday morning to discuss the second installment of a rivalry that has perked up in recent years even though the former Smythe Division foes haven’t met in the playoffs since 1993. Discussing the rivalry, the Flames’ defense and the heavier styles of play in the Pacific Division, Giordano offers ample respect for what the Kings have been able to accomplish this decade.
