The Boston Bruins may have to do without one of their top forwards for the rest of the Stanley Cup Final. As reported by ESPNBoston.com's Joe McDonald, Nathan Horton appeared to suffer an upper-body injury (shoulder?) during Wednesday's 4-3 OT loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.
"... During a Bruins power play in the first overtime, a scramble ensued in front of the Chicago net, and Horton was battling for position with Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson when he appeared to hurt his shoulder. The play continued, but Horton skated to the bench hunched over in pain and went right to the locker room. He did not return ..."
During the telecast, NBC's Pierre McGuire implied that Horton had already been dealing with an upper-body injury of late (relayed by NESN). Whether the forward re-aggravated that alleged injury, or this is a different issue altogether, isn't known.
If Horton is to miss time, look for Tyler Seguin to skate again with Lucic and Krejci on the top line.
