John Scott is set to join Patrick Kaleta on the suspended list.
The Sabres' enforcer earned a match penalty Wednesday for a hit to the head of the Bruins' Loui Eriksson, an avoidable encounter that had Boston incensed.
"He did his job," Boston coach Claude Julien said. "He's there to do two things: to fight and to hurt. He did both of those things."
There was no update on the status of Eriksson, who was woozy and needed to be helped off the ice by two teammates.
The Sabres said Scott was not available for comment.
"I'm not going to comment on it," Sabres coach Ron Rolston said.
TSN reports Scott will have an in-person hearing with NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan, which usually means a suspension of at least five games. Kaleta is appealing the 10-game ban he got for a head shot to Columbus' Jack Johnson.
