Bobby Ryan Nets a Goal in Return to Anaheim

According to this USA Today piece, there may be five reasons why the Anaheim Ducks were right to trade Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators, but here is one reason why Bobby Ryan can feel good about coming back to visit his old club on Sunday at the Honda Center.

That reason? A one-timer just to the left of the doorstep to give Ottawa its lone goal on the evening.

Should we call it even? Not so sure...

Ryan netted one for the Sens, but his old linemates, Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, combined for three of Anaheim's four tallies as the Ducks charged to a relatively easy 4-1 victory.

Ryan, a four-time 30-goal scorer for the Ducks, has three in five games for the Senators, but his production hasn't helped the Senators from falling to 1-2-2 on the season. The Ducks, meanwhile, are 4-1 without Ryan's services.
