4/25 Recap: Myers #1 star as Rockets take lead

At the Pacific Coliseum, Tyler Myers saw over 27:00 of work and was named the game's #1 star as Kelowna edged Vancouver 1-0 in the pivotal fifth game of their conference final. The back-to-back shutouts give the Rockets a 3-2 series lead with the clubs heading back to Kelowna for Monday's game six. Like he has through most of the series, Myers disrupted the Giants attack by breaking up plays with his reach and quickly moving the puck out of his end. His steady play has caught the eyes of scouts who have been keying in on '09 Evander Kane's aptitude against his larger foe. While Kane, 17, has put up a fight, he has just one goal and one assist in the series as the Sabres future anchor has been winning most of the rounds. Myers' over-the-glass clear early in the third period resulted in a 5-3 power play where Kane had more than one nice chance to tie the game. With their stud in the box, the Rockets dmen blocked shots and got a few keys saves to give the Giants consecutive losses for just the second time all season.

I really hope that the Sabres sign him and at least let him hang out and train with the team for next season. How amazing would it be for the Sabres to have a legitimate #1 d-man? I'm getting goosebumps thinking about it.

As these playoffs go on, my urge to buy a white Rockets jersey with Myers and 3 on it gets stronger
