No Update Yet on Nathan Horton
CHICAGO, IL - With Game One of the Stanley Cup Final from United Center knotted at 3-3 in an eventual triple OT barn-burner, forward Nathan Horton left the ice during a Bruins' power play with under eight minutes left in the first overtime.
He did not return for the second and third OT periods.
Following the game, Boston Head Coach Claude Julien said there there was not yet an update on the forward.
"Nothing right now because there's nothing to say," Julien told media. "Because our doctors haven't finalized the evaluation properly."
Chicago Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw eventually scored the game-winner 52:08 into triple overtime off a deflection in front. It was the 63rd shot that Tuukka Rask faced. The game marked the fifth longest playoff game in Stanley Cup Final history.
Horton assisted on his linemate Milan Lucic's Stanley Cup Final opening goal and currently leads the NHL with a plus-22 rating. In scoring, he sits second in the league below his centerman, David Krejci (23 points) with seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points in 17 games.
