Tyler Myers will have to explain himself to Brendan Shanahan today.
The Sabres' defenseman earned a boarding penalty Monday night during the 3-2 win over Montreal, and Shanahan -- the NHL's vice president of player safety and the discipline czar -- has scheduled a hearing for this afternoon with Myers.
Myers had phone call with Shanahan earlier in the year for a hit on Dainius Zubrus but escaped supplemental discipline. Going against Myers this time could be the fact it's his second incident of the season and the possible appearance of intent during the hit on Gomez.
Myers took a stick to the face from Canadiens defenseman Chris Campoli along the boards, then immediately responded with the big hit on Gomez. The video is below.
