Myers expected to be healthy scratch for Sabres

Tyler Myers is expected to be a healthy scratch Saturday for the Buffalo Sabres when they face the New York Islanders, John Vogl of the Buffalo News reports.

Myers was Buffalo's first-round pick (No. 12) in the 2008 NHL Draft and won the Calder Trophy in 2009-10. He has one goal, no assists and a minus-9 rating through the team's first 11 games. The Sabres have lost seven of nine games since starting the season 2-0.

Buffalo signed Myers to a seven-year, $38.5 million contract extension that began this season. The deal included a $10 million signing bonus and a $12 million salary (now pro-rated) for the 2012-13 campaign.

"I'm embarrassed, and I should be," Myers said to Vogl. "Two years in a row now. It doesn't feel very good, but silver lining, I responded the way I needed to last time, and this is what I have to do this time."

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
