Scott has been given the opportunity to attend an in-person hearing, which is offered when a suspension has the potential to exceed five games
Analysis: Scott was ejected for his hit on Eriksson in the third period of Boston's 5-2 win Wednesday. Eriksson had dumped the puck into the Sabres zone when Scott skated in from the player's right and struck him with a shoulder to the face. Eriksson was dazed and didn't return. He stayed in Buffalo overnight as a precaution. Scott was apologetic Thursday. He calls it "a bad play," adding he didn't mean to aim for Eriksson's head.
