NHL Game Night 2/24: Lightning at Oilers

A soft goal was the difference.

TB-3
EDM-5

Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 44 shots in the game. He had a respectable save percentage in the game, but he never looked completely comfortable to me and the soft goal he allowed to Jason Strudwick on a long point shot that he badly misplayed his angle on ended up being the difference. It's nothing that will get him demoted, but I would expect McKenna back in for the next game.

First Period
02:20 EDM Cole (15), (unassisted)
05:40 EDM Strudwick (2), (Gagner)

Second Period
02:30 TB Murphy (2), (St. Louis, Recchi)(PP)
12:23 TB Stamkos (11), (Malone)
13:15 EDM Souray (16), (Cogliano)

Third Period
02:20 EDM Cogliano (14), (Stortini, Moreau)
13:46 TBL Murphy (3), (Lecavalier, St. Louis)
19:58 EDM Souray (17), (Brodziak)(EN)

Marek Malik needs to be put down like Old Yeller. Man up, Brian Lawton. It's time. Erik Cole made Malik look like he was moving in reverse on the Oilers' first goal. Sad.

Matt Smaby was -1 with 2 hits and 3 blocked shots in 21:59.

David Koci had 7 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 6:09.
