The ailment caused Ryan to leave Tuesday's tilt with the Penguins, but the prolific scoring winger should be fine for the upcoming contest. Ryan has grabbed 56 points in 79 games this season, which is his highest total in three years as a Senator. On the downside, he owns a minus-10 rating, counting as the first time he's been on the undesirable end of the plus-minus rating as a full-time player.
The Sens are dropping like flies with just two games remaining on the schedule, with Ryan being the latest victim. The 29-year-old shot up to the first line after Mark Stone's upper-body injury, and if the winger is unable to skate in Thursday's matchup against the Panthers, coach Dave Cameron will have to get creative with his lineup. Ryan's 56 points will surely be missed if he can't suit up.
Bobby Ryan notched a power-play assist in Saturday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of Philadelphia.
Ryan has notched 10 helpers on the man advantage for the second straight year. What may come as a disappointment to owners, however, is that the winger has failed to find twine in 13 straight games. The seven apples in that span is acceptable, but with 22 markers on the season, it'd be nice to see the 29-year-old convert on the 22 shots he took in that stretch. With three games remaining, Ryan will look to do just that.
Owners can now exhale, as Ryan snapped his four-game pointless streak. Fortunately, the 29-year-old has been able to contribute in penalty minutes despite his recent struggles, totaling 10 PIM in his last six outings. The winger recently hopped back up to the second line next to Mika Zibanejad and Mike Hoffman, with the familiar faces boding well for Ryan's outlook down the stretch.
