Nathan Horton picking his spots well for Bruins

Two years ago, when the Bruins made their Stanley Cup run, Nathan Horton was the late-game hero. In overtime of Game 7 in the first round, Horton scored the winning goal to propel the Bruins over the Canadiens. In Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final against Tampa Bay, Horton scored the night’s only goal at 12:27 of the third period.

This year, Horton has scored two of his three goals in the third period. The Bruins (5-0-1) have yet to lose in regulation. If Horton hadn’t netted those third-period goals, the Bruins might be carrying two regulation losses.
