Rookie defenseman Tyler Myers has a large welt on the right side of his neck but said after tonight's game he expects to practice Wednesday and play Thursday night in Carolina. Myers was struck by the puck when he deflected Daniel Paille's slapshot with 42 seconds left in regulation.
"When it first happened, I was wheezing a bit," said Myers. "But then it calmed down and I don't think it will be any more than some stiffness after tonight."
Myers played 28 minutes, 17 seconds in the game, just 15 seconds off his season high. And remember he missed the last six minutes. He scored the tying goal late in the second period, his eighth of the season.
