Ryan's goal for Senators wins child a puppy

An Ottawa Senators fan will get a new puppy, thanks to Bobby Ryan.

Cole Jansen held a sign at warmups on Sunday that read, "Bobby, Dad said if you score we get a puppy!" Ryan scored with 20 seconds left in the second period of the Senators' 3-0 win against the New York Rangers.

"It's taken about three months," Cole said in an interview with TSN in the third period.

Ryan said he saw the sign in warmups, and heard some of the interview with the Jensen's on the scoreboard.

"I wanted to get the poor kid a dog," Ryan said. "I couldn't really hear what was going on, I couldn't understand much of [the interview]. But I heard I was buying (another dog) if I scored another one, or something like that. That was a fair deal. I would have done that for them. I saved myself some money at least."

Cole said they are getting a Pomsky and will name it Bobby.

"They've been bugging me for months to get this dog and I thought, "Hey if I make a bet and they lose, at least I'm scot-free," Cole's dad Warren said. "I just shouldn't have picked such a talented player like Bobby Ryan, I should have picked someone else."

Ryan has 17 goals this season, including four in his past five games.
