Multiple Twitter reports from the Sabres beat writers have Tyler Myers out for about a month with a broken wrist. This is a huge blow for the big guy, who I thought had responded well after his benching and might’ve been rounding into form. TJ Brennan is back up with the club and may see some time as Weber is also on the shelf (he practiced today with Ehrhoff).
The Sabres need to pull together and play a team game from here on out. One might even suggest a strong adherence to The System (I guarantee Roy or Pominville mention The System several times in their next few interviews). They can keep winning games here – they do play Columbus after Boston – and it’s worth remembering that no team has more wins than Buffalo right now. The ones ahead of them in the standings all have more loser points. Even a dip in the standings now will not spell doom for the season. Let’s see if the boys can dig in and keep getting points in front of a patchwork D and the backup goalie.
By the way, I would apparently be remiss in blogging today if I did not mention Sidney Crosby at least once, so: Sidney Crosby.
