Bobby Ryan’s Big Moment

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

If you listened close enough, you could almost hear it, omnipresent above the groans and grumbling of yellow-clad Penguin fans as they filed out.

No question about it, the voice cheering loudest for Bobby Ryan’s overtime winner came from above.

Hours before maybe the most difficult holiday of his young life, Ryan delivered a magical Mother’s Day present for his late mom, who passed away unexpectedly last July after a brief battle with cancer.

Melody Stevenson was surely beaming with pride as her son raced around Olli Maattaand shovelled a backhand over Marc-Andre Fleury’s shoulder to become the first Ottawa Senator to ever score two overtime goals in one postseason. Ryan saved it for the biggest stage of his career, his first appearance in an Eastern Conference final.

Senators 2, Penguins 1.

“It felt great, obviously, to come through,” Ryan said. “An important and crucial moment, I guess.”
