Bobby Ryan’s Offense Has Gone Dry

from Ian Medes of TSN,

Multiple waves of reporters descended on the star winger and often times, they were repeating questions that were already asked a few minutes earlier.

“I’m sorry I’m coming in late, but can you talk about your struggles here?”

“How frustrating is it to not be able to score?”

“Do you feel like you’re close to turning this around?”

And yet Ryan acknowledged each question as if he was hearing it for the first time; never once becoming frustrated or agitated with the same line of questioning.

Patience has now become the operative word in Bobby Ryan’s vocabulary.

He hasn’t scored a goal in over a month, with his last one coming all the way back on March 19 against Boston – a span of 15 games if you include the playoff series against Montreal. And even that goal was a bit of a fluke; the puck caromed in off the leg of Zdeno Chara and past Tuukka Rask. If you want to be a real stickler about it, the last time Bobby Ryan shot the puck and beat a goalie cleanly was on March 4 in Winnipeg – a span of 23 games.
