It wasn't technically a “flop,” but it may as well have been.
During the Senators' game against the Canadiens on Thursday, Ottawa forward Bobby Ryan was struck by a high stick from Montreal defenseman Tom Gilbert. Gilbert hardly grazed Ryan in committing the penalty, but you certainly wouldn't know it by Ryan's reaction.
Quite the sell job by Ryan.
The Senators couldn't take advantage on the ensuing power play, continuing to trail 2-0 after it expired, but they went on to score five unanswered goals and beat the Canadiens 5-2. Erik Karlsson led the way with two goals for Ottawa.
