You can't undo history.

The Calgary Flames at least figured out a way to stop it.

With Wednesday's 3-2 triumph over the Phoenix Coyotes at the Saddledome, the Flames — FINALLY! — ended a franchise-record seven-game losing skid on home ice.

Sean Monahan, Lance Bouma and Matt Stajan each found the back of the net for the Flames (17-27-7), and puck-stopper Karri Ramo made 30 saves and even added an assist to do his part.

The last time the crew from Calgary celebrated a victory under their saddle-shaped roof, Santa Claus had yet to drop off his gifts and Flames head coach Bob Hartley and Vancouver Canucks bench boss John Tortorella were — call this an unconfirmed report — still exchanging Christmas cards.
