Question about monitor calbration,

I have never calibrated my monitor (HP). I don't understand how calibrating a monitor can effect how the printer will print a photo. How does changing the way a photo looks on the screen effect the way a printers prints?

Sorry if this question seems simple to some but it is a puzzle to me. If I should calibrate my monitor is there a "best" way to do it?
Thanks for any help in understanding this.
