Jets fans everywhere held their collective breathe as big defenceman Tyler Myers slid into the Jets post and then the backboards during the 2nd period of play.  He was slow to get up but stayed on the Jets bench. He then came back onto the ice but quickly left for the Jets dressing room.

He returned just prior to the start of the 3rd period, took a quick skate around, and quickly returned to the Jets dressing room. Shortly thereafter the Jets announced he was done for the night with an upper body injury.
