It seemed pretty likely following the Bruins Game 1 loss to the Blackhawks on Wednesday that if the Bruins were to win their second Stanley Cup in three seasons, they would have to do it without Nathan Horton.
It looked like we’d seen the last of Horton in this series – and possibly in black and gold, as he will become an unrestricted free agent after this series – when he skated off the ice in overtime favoring his shoulder. A devastating blow given his 18 points in 17 postseason games.
But Horton participated in Bruins practice Friday, and many signs are pointing to the right wing being in the lineup for Game 2 Saturday night.
“It looks like a pretty good possibility [that Horton will play],” said Bruins radio voice Dave Goucher on UNO Sports Tonight. “It all depends on how much pain can he tolerate right now.”
