The kid is teflon.
Karri Ramo rebounded from that disasterous third period against Buffalo to stop 34 of 35 shots for the win tonight. That's why this young man is special. Most netminders his age would've had their psyche destroyed in that Buffalo game. Not Ramo. He's fearless, and he's got the shortest memory of any 21 year old netminder this organization has ever seen.
Matt Smaby had 8:48 of ice time tonight with 1 shot and a team high 5 hits. He kept his shifts nice and short tonight, especially in the third when it was a one goal game. It's a little thing, but the coaches will appreciate it.
If the Lightning can get Stamkos to anchor a new scoring line and keep this Ouellet/Halpern duo together as a third scoring line, watch out.
