Bruins Eriksson Out with Concussion after Cheap Shot

Posted: Updated:




       BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) _ Buffalo Sabres enforcer John Scott has been suspended indefinitely by the NHL pending a disciplinary hearing for a blindside hit to the head that leveled Boston Bruins forward Lou Eriksson.
        Scott has been given the opportunity to attend an in-person hearing, which is offered when a suspension has the potential to exceed five games.
        Scott was ejected for his hit on Eriksson in the third period of Boston's 5-2 win Wednesday. Eriksson had dumped the puck into the Sabres zone when Scott skated in from the player's right and struck him with a shoulder to the face.         Eriksson was dazed and didn't return. He stayed in Buffalo overnight as a precaution.
        Scott was apologetic Thursday. He calls it ``a bad play,'' adding he didn't mean to aim for Eriksson's head.
