Michael Ryder's goalless drought reached 22 games on Saturday in a 3-0 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

He was credited with a team-high four shots, but wasn't able to score his 17th goal of the season. "It's been tough," he said after the loss. "It's been a while since I scored a goal. Especially getting shut out tonight, I had a couple of good opportunities to put the team on the board and it's tough points to give away right now this time in the season. I've got to make sure I keep pushing and make sure I play that way or even better every night and try to find a way to score some goals."

Michael Ryder has not scored a goal in his last 16 games.

The streaky Ryder is in one of his bad streaks but he should come out of it soon. "I really liked him (Saturday) on the Island," coach Peter DeBoer said. "I thought (Sunday) he didn't find a way to get the puck to the net. I get concerned when he's not getting shots on net. I'm not concerned as much about the goals as I am about when the opportunities dry up. That's when you get concerned." Ryder has 16 goals and 28 points in 62 games with a minus-10 rating.

Michael Ryder is as streaky a goal scorer as there is, and of late he just cannot put the puck in the net.

Against the Oilers Friday night, his drought hit 12 games, but he worked his tail off putting a team-best five shots on net and he also hit a crossbar. Finally, Ryder was rewarded in overtime, although not with a goal. When Adam Henrique did some great work along the boards to get the puck free, it went to Ryder, who whipped a backhand pass across the ice to set up Jon Merrill's game-winner. The point was Ryder's first in nine games. Maybe this ended his long string of bad luck.

He has been on the winning end of the two matches and will look to make it three in a row Sunday at Yankee Stadium. Ryder has 16 goals and 26 points in 52 games with a minus-five rating and 12 penalty minutes. His fantasy value is weak in deeper pools.
