Tyler Myers has some explaining to do.

The big Buffalo Sabres defenceman will have a phone hearing with the NHL’s department of player safety Monday for a hit on New Jersey Devils forward Dainius Zubrus.

During the third period Saturday in Buffalo, Myers jarred Zubrus with a hit to the head that left the 35-year-old dazed on the ice.

Myers received a two-minute minor for an illegal hit to the head.

New Jersey Devils head coach Peter DeBoer told the Bergen Record he thought the hit deserved a major penalty.

As for Zubrus, he wasn’t too happy with himself after taking a penalty against the same guy that nearly took his head off, leading to the Sabres’ third-period winner.

"Get hit in the head, get a penalty and they go up a goal. Tough night,” Zubrus told the Record.

The Sabres won the game 2-1.
