Michael Felger and Tony Amonte on Postgame Live after the Bruins triple-overtime, 4-3 loss to the Blackhawks in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals talk about how Tyler Seguin will have to step up after the loss of Nathan Horton for the B's.

The Bruins lost Horton to an injury and he didn't return to the ice. As Felger pointed out, when a hockey player doesn't come back to play after an injury, "usually that means it's really bad."

Amonte talked about how the Bruins rallied when they lost Horton to an injury in the Stanley Cup Finals two years ago against Vancouver. They'll need to do the same again.

And if Horton misses any significant time, Felger and Amonte agreed it's time for Tyler Seguin to step up.

"He had the game on his stick a number of times throughout the three OTs," Amonte said. "He's lost his touch. Everytime he gets on a breakaway, he hits the goalie right in the chest.

Said Felger: "They need Nathan Horton because Tyler Seguin has taken a step back."
