scp to pipe

How can scp write to a pipe that tar could then process?
On i386 Gentoo Linux, using bash, the following works
cat myfile.tar.gz | tar -xf
however, this does not work
scp myuser@mycomp:~/myfile.tar.gz | tar -xz
gzip: stdin: unexpected end of file
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
nor does this
tar -xz < scp myuser@mycomp:~/myfile.tar.gz
I can't think of a way to tell scp to write to pipe instead of a named file. Any suggestions are welcome.
