Ramo will receive the start in net Thursday against the Sharks, Derek Willis of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports. Ramo stopped 16 of the 18 shots he faced in his last start Feb. 5 against the Blue Jackets, but it wasn't enough to emerge victorious. Following two nights off in favor of Jonas Hiller, Ramo will return between the pipes in the first game of a back-to-back set Thursday. In his return to the crease, Ramo will need to prepare for a Sharks club that's been inconsistent offensively of late, averaging just 2.25 goals per game in February.
Ramo allowed two goals on 18 shots in Friday's loss to Columbus. Not a great night for Ramo, who was outdueled by the much busier Joonas Korpisalo. Ramo falls to 17-18-0 on the season with a .911 save percentage. While he's had some strong appearances of late, Ramo has managed just two wins in his last eight games and has been plagued with consistency issues, so exhibit caution before deciding to put him in your lineup.

The netminder will look to get back to back wins for the first time since early January. Inconsistent of late, the 29-year-old posted 2-3-0 record in his previous five contests with a .924 save percentage.
Ramo stopped 28 of 29 shots faced, including all 11 power-play opportunities, in Wednesday's 4-1 win over Carolina.

Ramo had lost his last three starts heading into the All-Star break, but this much-needed win brought the veteran back to .500 on the season.
