For the young defender, not only were his efforts in vain; Montreal scored on the 5-3, but they have also ended his 2013 regular season. With little hope for the playoffs, Tyler Myers is already preparing his summer home, thanks to a broken leg suffered when blocking one of two shots on the Montreal powerplay.
Watching the play unfold, it was the best the Sabres penalty kill looked in awhile, Myers got down and blocked two wild shots from the point, and left he ice in obvious pain after his shift. The Buffalo Sabres confirmed today that the Sabres tallest defenseman suffered a broken leg on the play.
The Buffalo Sabres were on an extended penalty kill down two men, as Mike Weber was in the box for delay of game (puck over the glass) and Jochen Hecht in the box for high sticking. It is the end of another difficult season for the highly touted defenseman – who should be leading the team instead of constantly drawing the ire of fans and management.
Looks like next season will be another watch and wait to see how Tyler Myers performs.
