The Ottawa Senators desperately needed this goal.

While he was often heavily criticized during the regular season, forward Bobby Ryan has been strong in the playoffs and Tuesday night in Game 6 was no exception. 

With the Senators having a five on three power play thanks to a pair of bad penalties from the Pittsburgh Penguins, Ryan made the best of a great passing play from his teammates and just barely sneaked it pass Penguins goalie Matt Murray.

It was enough to tie the game, something that did not change as the teams headed back to the locker room after the second period,
