NHL Game Night 3/29: Senators at Lightning

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

OTT-3
TB-0

Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 29 shots for the loss. Ottawa's first goal was a short side shot you could fault him for, but otherwise he was solid. He got no offensive support and the refs decided to throw the shaft in at the end to wreck his stats by giving Ottawa a freebee 5-on-3.

First Period
09:45 OTT Heatley (35), (Fisher)(PP)
13:44 OTT Shannon (8), (unassisted)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
16:41 OTT Spezza (30), (Alfredsson, Kuba)(PP)

Ottawa took a string of penalties early in the Second Period that were a hand engraved invitation to get back in the game that the Lightning refused to RSVP. At even strength, the Lightning just couldn't get in behind the Ottawa defense to get any forecheck generated. That's a big part of why they only had an anemic 17 hits on the game.

Noah Welch had 2 blocked shots in 18:21.

David Koci had 2 penalty minutes in 12:40. Get well soon, Matt Smaby.

Martins Karsums had 2 hits in 10:36.

Richard Petiot had 1 blocked shot in 23:33.

Matt Lashoff was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 3 blocked shots in 22:49. He scored a beautiful goal banking a puck in off of the back of the goaltender's pads. Unfortunately, that goalie was Karri Ramo.
