The benching of Sabres defenseman Tyler Myers lasted just one game. Myers, scratched from Monday's 3-2 shootout victory in Montreal, will be back in the lineup tonight when Buffalo hosts New Jersey.
Myers, who was minus-6 in his previous four games, has no goals, four assists and numerous turnovers during his 16 games this season.
"The history of young players is they go through tough stretches," coach Lindy Ruff said after an optional morning skate in First Niagara Center. "He's had some good games, but recently a couple that we'd like to improve on."
Marc-Andre Gragnani will sit in Myers' place, the second time this season he's been scratched. Mike Weber, who played well in Monday's victory, will remain in the lineup and play his third game.
The Sabres have recalled right wing Corey Tropp from Rochester to replace injured forward Cody McCormick. It's the second recall for Tropp, who had a goal and assist in four games while Patrick Kaleta was serving a suspension. McCormick was injured Monday.
Jhonas Enroth will be in net against New Jersey, which sustained a 4-3 loss to Boston on Tuesday night.
