In the 2000 Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the Flyers to the seventh game of the Eastern Conference Final. Ramsay was most recently an assistant coach with the Florida Panthers.The St. Louis Blues will have the last-change advantage as the home team in Game 5 of their Western Conference First Round series. Longtime NHL coach Craig Ramsay said it won't matter as long as Chicago Blackhawks forwards Bryan Bickell, Marian Hossa and Jonathan Toews continue to be as dominant as they were late in Game 4.
