Stanley Cup Final: Nathan Horton considered day-to-day, questionable for Game 2

Nathan Horton is questionable for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final due to an undisclosed injury.

Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton is considered day-to-day due to an undisclosed injury sustained in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final, according to head coach Claude Julien on Thursday afternoon.

Horton left the game during the first overtime period while battling for position in front of the Chicago Blackhawks goal. Despite the contact appearing innocuous in nature, the forward was visibly in pain and was unable to return to the contest. Julien stated that the club is hopeful that Horton will be available for Game 2 on Saturday night. Darren Dreger of TSN tweeted earlier on Thursday that the injury is not believed to be serious.

The loss of Horton would create a void on the team's top-line. With Horton out of the rotation, Julien placed Tyler Seguin with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. It remains to be seen how Julien will manage the roster in the event Horton is unable to play in Game 2.
