CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Sean Monahan scored his team-leading 14th goal of the season and Matt Stajan got the game-winner as the Calgary Flames beat the Phoenix Coyotes 3-2 Wednesday night to snap their team-record seven-game home losing streak.

Lance Bouma also scored for Calgary, which scored more than two goals for the second time in 14 games since Christmas and had been outscored 22-4 during its home skid.

Karri Ramo finished with 30 saves for the Flames.

Antoine Vermette and Shane Doan scored for Phoenix, which has lost eight of its last 11.

Monahan opened the scoring at 11:44 of the first period, marking the first time in nine home games Calgary scored first. The Flames hadn't held a lead in a home game since Dec. 12, the day former general manager Jay Feaster was fired.

Stajan's score with just under 4 minutes remaining in the second put the Flames up 3-1.
