Video- Tyler Myers Hit On Dainius Zubrus

No penalty on the play.

from Tom Gulitti of Fire & Ice,

Zubrus was leaning forward trying to reach for the puck when Myers hit him with his upper right arm/elbow. Zubrus didn’t think that Myers attempted to play the puck at all. No penalty was called.

“I know I was reaching for the puck,” he said. “I know I never had possession of it and instead of playing the puck, I think he just went after me. I asked the refs and they said they didn’t want to guess and make the wrong call. You guys saw it better than I did probably.”

Point of contact was the head.  Should be suspended.  Shanny is going to get another earful from the Sabres.

That was worse than the Brendan Smith hit…by far. 50 GAMES!!

Pretty much exact same hit as Torres on Eberle last season.  Torres got 2 regular season games plus 2 playoff games. 

It’s not the preseason, so Myers won’t get 10 games.

Myers is not a Bruin, so he is not exempt from being suspended.

I’m guessing 2 games.

Has anyone consulted physicist Chrissie Pronger yet?

He reached out at the last second, I’m ok with no penalty.

Wow, anyone calling penalty/suspension on this hit should be suspended from life.
