BUFFALO, NY - About six minutes into the third period of the Bruins 5-2 win in Buffalo, Loui Eriksson was hit by John Scott near center ice. He didn’t appear to see it coming, and the winger was slow to get up.
Eriksson went down the tunnel, after being helped off the ice by Dennis Seidenberg and Chris Kelly. He didn’t return to the game.
Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli issued an update following the game that “Loui is staying over night in Buffalo for precautionary reasons. He is expected to return to Boston on Thursday.”
"You just don’t want to see guys get hit like that. See how he was kind of trying to get up afterwards, it’s hard to watch that, and you want to make sure that you’re there to support one another and stick up for one another."
- Adam McQuaid, who immediately fought John Scott after the hit on Eriksson
