BOSTON (CBS) – Injured Bruins forward Nathan Horton is still dealing with the symptoms that go with a concussion, but is expected to attend Monday night’s Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals at the TD Garden.
“He popped in quickly this morning just to say ‘hi’,” Bruins coach Claude Julien said Monday morning. “I have the impression that he’s going to be coming to the game tonight as long as he feels good, and that can vary as the day goes on. But I think right now his plan is to hopefully be here tonight.”
Horton suffered a severe concussion after a late hit by the Canucks Aaron Rome in Game 3. Horton was taken off the ice on a stretcher and was ruled out for the rest of the series. After the Bruins 4-0 Game 4 win at the Garden last week, Horton was on hand to pass out the “player of the game” jacket to Rich Peverley, who took his spot on the Bruins front line.

Horton was second on the team with eight goals and nine assists in 20 playoff games this season, and scored the series-ending goals in both Game 7′s against the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning.
