BUFFALO, N.Y. - Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson is staying 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 staying in Buffalo overnight and 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 levelled him with a shoulder to the face.

Scott was ejected, and is expected to face a disciplinary hearing with the NHL.
