NHL Game Night 3/12: Lightning at Leafs

A crushing blow in the Tavares/Hedman Derby.

TB-4
TOR-1

Karri Ramo allowed just 1 goal on 21 shots for the win, playing both ends of the back-to-back. Getting 3 points out of 4 in a back-to-back situation is another big step for a guy trying to win a job in Tampa next season.
