Bobby Ryan’s big night powers Sens’ OT win vs. Blues

1 Comment

Things were looking pretty dire for the Ottawa Senators earlier on Monday.

They came into the game with a three-game losing streak and losses in five of six contests, and they had been shut out in consecutive games.

There was concern that might happen again, as the St. Louis Blues opened up a 2-0 lead … but, well, the headline kind of spoils this one, doesn’t it?

Bobby Ryan was the catalyst of a big turnaround, grabbing the primary assist on Mike Hoffman‘s tally before tying the game up and then winning it in overtime.

(You can see his fantastic move on the overtime game-winner in the video above this post.)

Here’s his first goal of the night while we’re at it:

When you’re in a rut, sometimes you need key guys to carry you to victory. Ryan did that in a big way for the Senators tonight.
