NHL Game Night 1/9: Lightning at Ducks

A good win for the Lightning and their young netminder.

TB-4
ANA-3

Karri Ramo stopped 29 of 32 shots for the win in his first NHL start of the season.

First Period
03:28 TBL St. Louis (16), (Lecavalier)(SH)

Third Period
10:50 TB Malone (12), (Halpern, St. Louis)

This is the kind of win that helps build psychological toughness for the club. After not showing up for the third period in Phoenix and then giving up two quick goals at the end of the second, it would've been easy for the Lightning to implode in the third against Anaheim. But, they didn't. They can draw on the experience the next time they face some adversity.

Similarly, Ramo rebounded from seeing his soft goal late in the second chased by a quick tying goal 18 seconds later to shut the door stopping 8 of 8 shots in the final frame to take with win. You can't underestimate how important that is for a young netminder like Ramo who has struggled the first half in Norfolk. This is a critical juncture for Karri with a job in Tampa likely open when and if Olaf Kolzig is moved at the trade deadline. Ramo is in the final year of his entry-level deal, and he appeared a lock to move up in March at the start of the year, but confidence in the netminder has flagged slightly. Getting a big win in Anaheim will hopefully help him regain his swagger over the next month and a half once he gets sent back to Norfolk and give him the momentum he needs to seize the backup job in Tampa Bay.

Matt Smaby was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 13:45.

Paul Szczechura had 2 hits and was 47% on draws in 15:52.

Steven Stamkos was a healthy scratch for the first time in his NHL career. Tonight would've been his graduation from prospect status at Bolt Prospects, but that will have to wait for the game against the Kings.
