07:25 AM ET 10.24 | John Scott, who said earlier in the day that he was a calming influence on his team, certainly made his presence felt Wednesday night. But one of his key plays will likely put him on the suspension list. The enforcer's shoulder connected with the head of Loui Eriksson at 5:49 of the third period, knocking the Boston forward woozy. Adam McQuaid jumped Scott for a fight at the end of the play. ... [Said Bruins coach Claude Julien:] "It's unfortunate but the guy who did it, did his job tonight. They're going to be looked at. I'm not going to say much more than that. Obviously it's disappointing. A key player gets hurt. I know there's history here but the guy plays about two-three minutes a game and he targets your best player, one of your best players, that kind of thing. ... It is what it is."

Cheap shot by a punk.

Happening all too often in the League.

And let the record show, Scott didn't have the guts to hit his Holiness, Phil the Thrill in the offseason. Just chirped at him, knowing he would get his **** handed to him by Phil if he got any more frisky.

Welcome back David Clarkson!

The well must be dry in the Sabres farm system if they continue to waste a roster spot on this POS.

Unbelievable. Guy has suited up for 180+ games in the NHL and has 1 G & 3 A.

No kidding. Even that headcase Trevor Gillies scored twice in only 57 games.

And for an early morning tweak,

I noticed the Lummox was nowhere to be found. Reall, Seguin had to defend his teammate?

PK Chelios woulda stepped in, for sure!

There's a simple solution: Fine teams the players' salary against next season's cap for any suspension over 5 games. Watch how quickly this crap goes away.

Can't disagree with you, Danny.

Interesting idea. I think it may very well work.

but there's the rub....they scream about this all over the place...but they also sort of "sell it" and every team has a guy...
Mind you, I don't disagree with you, but they will never do anything about it for real....
