WATCH: John Scott ejected from game after head shot on Eriksson

Sabres enforcer John Scott is going to get a call from the NHL’s Department of Player Safety for his vicious head shot on Bruins forward Loui Eriksson during the third period of Wednesday night’s game in Buffalo. After Eriksson passed the puck up ice to a teammate, Scott skated toward him from the side and delivered a hard hit with the head being the principal point of contact...

John Scott suspended indefinitely for blind hit on Loui Eriksson

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo Sabres enforcer John Scott was suspended indefinitely by the NHL on Thursday. And teammate Patrick Kaleta‘s appeal to reduce his 10-game suspension was denied by league commissioner Gary Bettman. Scott was suspended pending a disciplinary hearing for a blindside hit to the head that leveled Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson in Buffalo’s 5-2 loss a...

John Scott: ‘I Was Sick to My Stomach’ After Loui Eriksson Hit, Adds ‘I Have a Role’

For those of you who were hoping for something bad to happen to Buffalo’s buffoon John Scott on Wednesday night, you got your wish. Big John had a tummy ache following his disgusting head-hunting elbow on Bruins forward Loui Eriksson. Scott, who tried to decapitate the B’s winger during Boston’s 5-2 win, spoke to the media on Thursday regarding the ugly play that earned him...

Bettman upholds Buffalo Sabres "Rat" Patrick Kaleta's 10-game suspension

English: NHL Commisioner Gary Bettman in 2007. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) There was a some good news today. I love the fact that the NHL stood strong and wouldn't reduce Buffalo Sabres Foward/Rat Patrick Kaleta's 10 game suspension. I think it's the right call and it's the first step in the right diection in further preventing theses of dirty hits. Like I said before...

Patrick Kaleta's 10-game suspension upheld by Gary Bettman

Sabres forward Patrick Kaleta's appeal of his 10-game suspension was denied by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on Thursday. Kaleta was given a 10-game suspension for contact to the head of Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson last week. The penalty was on the stiff side since Kaleta was a repeat offender. Not agreeing with the suspension length Kaleta and the NHLPA appealed Brendan...

John Scott's a ******* Joke

  There's no point to John Scott. Seriously. The guy has five career points in 180 games and never finishing with a positive plus/minus rating. Dude hasn't scored a goal since '09-'10 season.  And for the people ready to talk about fighters, there's a huge difference between enforcer and a goon, and John Scott is captain of the latter.  Guy can barely...

John Scott delivers brutal cheap shot elbow to the head of Loui Eriksson

  The Bruins and Sabres faced off on Wednesday night as a part of NHL Rivalry Night, and Buffalo’s John Scott earned himself an early exit from the game in the third period with this brutal cheap shot to the head of Boston’s Loui Eriksson. Scott clearly targets the head of Eriksson and delivers a high elbow at mid-ice. Scott was ejected while Eriksson appeared to be very shaken...

Buffa-Low Chips; Sabres Fall To 1-9-1

Just how bad is it going to get in Buffalo? That’s the million-dollar question. Ryan Miller continues to boost his trade value despite being on a team that’s 1-9-1. Thomas Vanek could be on his way out of town too. Where they go and what Buffalo might get in exchange remains to be seen. Since those guys are still wearing yellow and blue, they took the ice and got thumped by Boston...

John Scott’s at it again

The MetroWest Daily News's Dan Cagen points us toward a video in which we get to witness the latest suspension-worthy infraction from Buffalo Sabres forward John Scott, who very purposefully elbowed Boston Bruisn forward Loui Eriksson in the face:

Random tweeters try and defend John Scott

Lost in the hubbub of the the World Series last night was the Boston Bruins playing in Buffalo against a terrible hockey team. Everything was going swimmingly for most of the game. The Bruins were scoring goals, they were having a good time, people were laughing at the misfortune of Buffalo. Oh Buffalo. Without you, we would not have most of our hockey humor and the world would be...

Bruins vs Sabres: keys to the game

For the first time this season the Boston Bruins are going to face their "rivals" the Buffalo Sabres. Last season the Sabres went out of their way to sign tougher players because they have to play the Bruins so often. Unfortunately for Buffalo, their team has fallen off the map, so adding those guys doesn't matter anymore.The Sabres have been awful so far this season...

Sabres Hack John Scott Pounds Bruins Forward Loui Eriksson in the Head

Last night, Buffalo Sabres pylon, hack, one-dimensional forward, John Scott hit Boston Bruins forward Loui Eriksson in the head with one of the dirtiest hits I have seen this season. It doesn't appear that the players are learning anything. Scott's teammate Patrick Kaleta is already serving a 10-game suspension for his dirty hit on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Jack Johnson...

Sabres Once Again Prove They're a Joke Organization. BRUINS WIN!

Been trying to write a good intro but the Scott hit pissed me off too much. Just like every other head shot this season by some goon who shouldn't be in the league. This isn't just about a Bruins player being injured. Scott knew he could do this because the NHL gives less than a **** about player safety. They try to pretend they care by enforcing more rules in fights...
