Tyler Myers is used to media attention. Folks always want to talk about his fine rookie season. Today, the reporters surrounded him to talk about a questionable hit.
"Till just now I didn’t realize it was an issue at all,'' Myers said after practice.
The Bruins aren't happy with Myers' hit on Johnny Boychuk, though Myers said it was just a hockey play.
"I was just playing the play hard," he said. "I saw the scrum, and I thought he was digging for the puck. I just went to finish my check. I think it’s pretty safe to say my style is not to go in trying to hurt guys. I was just looking to finish my check."
Sabres coach Lindy Ruff declined to jump into the fray.
"I don’t even want to comment on speculation by other players," Ruff said. "The league will deal with anything. It was an intense game."
Myers said he had not heard from the NHL.
