Ryan Callahan has scored just one goal in the past 31 games.
"I try to contribute in other ways than just on the scoresheet, but part of my game, too, is contributing on the scoresheet. So it bothers you," he said. "It's a lot easier when the team is winning, and right now the team is winning. When you lose a game here or lose a game there and you look and you are not putting points up and you are not contributing on the scoresheet, it gets frustrating." He has one assist in his last eight and three points in past 16 outings. Jan 19 - 3:55 PM
