Bruins' Eriksson stays overnight in Buffalo

Posted: Updated:

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson stayed behind in Buffalo for precautionary reasons after being blindsided by a check to the head by Sabres enforcer John Scott.

Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli provided the update a few hours after the Bruins 5-2 victory Wednesday night. Chiarelli said Eriksson was expected to return to Boston on Thursday.
 
Eriksson was dazed and had to be helped off the ice after being hurt 5:49 into the third period.
 
Skating through the neutral zone, Eriksson had dumped the puck into the Sabres end. That's when Scott skated in from Eriksson's right and leveled him with a shoulder to the face.
 
Scott was ejected, and is expected to face a disciplinary hearing with the NHL.
