Ramo will back up Holmqvist
Coach John Tortorella announced today that Karri Ramo will back up Johan Holmqvist in goal for the playoffs. Ramo, a sixth-round draft choice in 2004, has appeared in two NHL games, logging a total of 69 minutes. Holmqvist beat out Marc Denis for the No. 1 spot. That means Denis, counted on as the No. 1 goaltender going into the year after being acquired in a trade for Fredrik Modin, will likely watch the playoffs in street clothes.
