The Sabres’ loss to Pittsburgh last night turned out to bad news for a different reason.

Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports Buffalo coach Lindy Ruff said Myers is out of tonight’s game thanks to a foot injury suffered last night.  In Myers’ stead, T.J. Brennan and Brayden McNabb were each called up to try and fill out his position. Ruff says that Myers is day-to-day with the injury.

Myers has had his share of health issues this season but he’s started to get his game back in shape recently. Brennan and McNabb both in the house for tonight’s game, thanks to fellow defenseman Mike Weber being listed as questionable. Nothing ever comes easy for the Sabres on defense.

    He may not be a big hitter or physical presence on the ice like so many like to point out, but you can’t question his toughness. he was hit in the face with a puck, point blank in the first, only to return later. Then, as mentioned above, was hit in the foot but finished the game. Slowly his physical game is coming around, but he could have been the best offensive-defenseman in the leauge if he was healthy all season.
