NHL Game Night 12/26: Lightning at Capitals

Apparently the Lightning skaters didn't get any "effort" for Christmas.


Karri Ramo allowed 3 goals on 31 shots in the loss including the late game winning goal which came on a shot which was deflected off a stick on the way in that Ramo stopped with his shoulder, popped into the air, and was eventually pushed in accidentally by Martin St. Louis and Paul Ranger. Tough way to take the loss for the kid.
