Myers a healthy scratch vs. Habs
MONTREAL -- Buffalo Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers was a healthy scratch for the first time in his career Monday night.

Myers' spot in the Sabres lineup for their game against the Montreal Canadiens was taken by Mike Weber, who was dressed for the second time all season.

"Some of his decisions haven't been very good," Sabres coach Lindy Ruff said after the morning skate, though he wouldn't confirm that Myers was scratched. "For Tyler to be better, inside the game he has to make some better decisions."

Myers, 21, is a minus-6 over his last four games, including a minus-3 in Saturday's 6-2 loss in Boston where he made a number of costly giveaways that led directly to Bruins goals.
 
"It's not good enough for me," Myers said. "I have to be better."

Myers, the Calder Trophy winner two years ago, was signed prior to this season to a 7-year, $38.5 million contract extension that kicks in next season.
Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
