Flames defenseman Mark Giordano is far from a household name, but he’s important to his team. Calgary won in his first game back since breaking his ankle on Oct. 21, beating the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1.

Both Giordano and TJ Brodie enjoyed one-goal, one-assist performanes while Karri Ramo stole one, stopping 30 out of 31 shots. Coyotes backup Thomas Greiss failed in his attempt to win four times in four starts, as he allowed four goals on just 18 shots.

Here are some of the highlights:

That marks Ramo’s first win since Oct. 26. The Flames are now 10-13-4 on the season while the Coyotes slip to 16-8-4.

    Ramo was in goal for the 2-1 win over LA on Nov. 30.

    Ramo’s new helmet must be confusing the writer because he was in net against LA, helping the Flames win two in a row.

    The LA win is the Kings only regulation loss in last 10 games. Go Flames.
