Wednesday night was clear that the Calgary Flames were welcome to have their captain back. Mark Giordano, who had been out since October 21 with a broken ankle, scored one goal and knotted one assist as the Flames defeated the Phoenix Coyotes 4-1 at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

Giordano's goal came from the point on the powerplay at 11:46 of the second period. It was an insurance marker that put the Flames up 3-1 at the time. The Flames also got goals from T.J. Brodie, Mikael Backlund and a shorthanded marker in the final period from Lee Stempniak. Matt Stajan and Jiri Hudler also had respectable offensive nights with a pair of helpers each.

Meanwhile, Karri Ramo was solid in net as he won his second consecutive game in between the pipes.

With the victory, the Flames improve to 10-13-4, but remain 12 points back of the Coyotes for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference. Calgary next hosts the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.
