2010 NHL Playoffs: Zdeno Chara and Tyler Myers Present Big Matchup

April 15th, 2010 by Matthew Hogan Leave a reply »

The Buffalo Sabres and the Boston Bruins are Northeast Division rivals and will be battling for what is sure to be a great first-round series, but the biggest part of this series will be played between veteran blue-liner Zdeno Chara and rookie Tyler Myers.

The two defensemen were not the factors they were expected in game one, but expect to be key components for the rest of the series.

The 6’9”, 260 pound Chara, last season’s Norris Trophy winner, will be an essential part of Boston’s first-round chances. He finished this season with 44 points in total, but just seven goals.

But anything Chara can do, Myers can do better.

While he stands an inch shorter than Chara, and weighs just 222 pounds, Myers finished his rookie season with 11 goals and 48 points. He also had 137 blocked shots compared with Chara’s 91.
