Karri Ramo is scheduled to start in net. ... Defenseman Richard Petiot, acquired at the deadline from the Maple Leafs, was called up from AHL Norfolk and will get in the game. "I don't know much about him," Tocchet said. "Let's give him a chance. This is the time to do it." At the very least it gets David Koci, if he plays tonight (and that is not guaranteed) off the blue line and back to his normal forward spot. ... Petiot will be the 47th player used by the team this season, and the 19th defenseman. Not good for building continuity. ... Tocchet said wing Martins Karsums, acquired from the Bruins in the Mark Recchi deal, needs to show more urgency. "He has to impress the coaches," Tocchet said. "We're still looking for that from him." ... Rookie Steven Stamkos will keep playing with right wing Marty St. Louis, Tocchet said. "I think Stammer needs to play with A and B type players," Tocchet said. "Marty is one of our better players on the give-and-go, and I think Stammer needs guys like that." ... Tocchet said defenseman Matt Lashoff (calf laceration), the key piece of the Recchi deal, is close to being healed and could be ready to play by next week.
