Derek Ryan chipped the puck on net, and Jeff Skinner was able to get a skate on it in the midst of a scrum in the crease to tie the game at one.
It’s Skinner’s eighth goal of the season, tying Victor Rask for the team lead. Ryan picked up his first assist of the season and Lee Stempniak got his sixth.
