Loui Eriksson Makes Appearance at Bruins Practice, But Still Unlikely to Skate This Week

Bruins winger Loui Eriksson must be feeling a little better after suffering a concussion last week, but he’s still not out of the woods just yet. The Boston forward was at the team’s practice facility in Wilmington, Mass., on Monday morning, which is a good sign in his recovery after being concussed by Buffalo’s John Scott in a Bruins win last week.

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.

Cam Neely Calls for Longer Suspensions to Help Eliminate Hits Like John Scott’s on Loui Eriksson

If the NHL is going to clean up the dangerous hits to the head that have marred the first few weeks of the new season, they need to get even tougher when it comes to supplemental discipline. That’s according to Bruins president Cam Neely. Neely not thinks longer suspensions will help start to eliminate hits the head, but the Hall of Famer also thinks players need to take the responsibility...

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.

Jarome Iginla comes to life for Boston Bruins

That line has produced eighth goals, 17 assists and a plus-17 rating.“It’s been longer than I would’ve liked, but it sure...

Berkshire Bank Faceoff: Jordan Caron Returns to Lineup in Place of Injured Loui Eriksson

BOSTON — The Bruins are going to be without Loui Eriksson for at least a game or two it would seem, and that means Jordan Caron gets another opportunity to get back into the Bruins lineup.

Stiffer Penalties for Illegal Checks Needed

In case you haven’t noticed in the wake of John Scott’s hit to the head of Loui Eriksson but suspensions are way up in the NHL this season. Assuming Scott is accessed supplemental discipline, and I’d bet just about anything he will get a lengthy timeout, that raises the number of suspensions for dangerous hits to eight on the young season in a total of 139 games played. Last...

The Boston Bruins didn’t play their best hockey on Thursday night, but a phenomenal performance from goaltender Tuukka Rask was enough to lift the B’s over the Western Conference-leading San Jose Sharks at TD Garden.
