Ryan registered a goal on four shots and doled out three hits Saturday in a 5-3 win over Chicago. Ryan opened the scoring midway through the first period, briefly catching Chicago netminder Malcolm Subban going the wrong way and beating him with a shot along the ice. It was Ryan's team-leading goal of the season and gave him 12 points in his first 22 games with the Red Wings.
Ryan notched two assists and a plus-2 rating in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Predators. Ryan set up two of Sam Gagner's three tallies in the contest. The 33-year-old Ryan had gone cold recently with just one goal in his last six outings, so this was a much-needed return to form. The winger has five goals, 11 points, 46 shots on net, 22 hits and 21 PIM through 21 appearances this season.
Ryan posted an assist, two shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Panthers. Ryan set up Givani Smith for a goal at 17:02 of the second period, which stood as the game-winner. After starting the year with four goals in his first three contests, Ryan hasn't potted a puck in the last nine outings. He has three assists to help soften the blow a bit, but the 33-year-old winger is at a modest seven points in 12 games overall. The Red Wings' offense isn't great at just 2.00 goals per game, so Ryan's bound to struggle through some scoring droughts this year.
Ryan scored a goal on three shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blue Jackets. Ryan has had a fantastic start to the season, and that continued with his fourth goal of the year, which gave the Red Wings a 2-1 lead in the second period. The winger is up to four goals on only seven shots -- regression is looming. He's added 17 PIM and a plus-2 rating through four contests. Ryan will make for a popular DFS pick while he's hot, and a top-six role will probably allow him to come back to earth slowly rather than a sudden drop-off in performance.
Ryan scored both Detroit goals Monday in a 3-2 loss to Columbus. He opened the scoring midway through the first period by snapping the puck past Joonas Korpisalo right off a faceoff, then collected his second in somewhat controversial fashion in the final minute of the third, as it was initially waved off due to goalie interference before being ruled a good goal upon review. Ryan scored only five goals and eight points in 24 games for the Sens last season, but the move to the Wings seemed to have lit a fire under the 33-year-old, and he's already found the back of the net three times in two games for Detroit.
