Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson was dumping the puck into the Buffalo Sabres zone on a seemingly harmless play when Sabres forward John Scott leveled Eriksson with a late hit and elbow to the head. Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid attacked Scott shortly after the hit, but it is safe to say that Scott will be suspended again. There’s really no place in the league for this kind of crap and it’s a shame that Scott is still in the league. Bruins head coach Claude Julien put it best:
Claude Julien: "The guy that did it, did his job tonight I guess.. He's only out there for 2 reasons: to fight, and hurt." #Bruins

BUF's John Scott has an in-person hearing with NHL for hit to the head on BOS's Loui Eriksson though date and time has yet to be set.
