Bruins’ Nathan Horton practices without limitations

CHICAGO – Nathan Horton practiced this afternoon at the United Center. Horton remains day-to-day, said Claude Julien, after leaving Game 1 in overtime with an injury. The right wing’s availability for Game 2 tomorrow is undetermined. Horton was unavailable for comment.

Horton shot and passed the puck today without limitations. Horton, however, did not take every line rush with Milan Lucic and David Krejci, his regular linemates. Tyler Seguin took shifts at right wing with Lucic and Krejci when Horton didn’t rotate through.

Horton suffered an upper-body injury during the first overtime of Game 1. It was likely related to the injury Horton sustained during a fight with Jarome Iginla, of the Penguins, on April 20. Horton missed the last five regular season games.


If Horton cannot play, Carl Soderberg could make his NHL playoff debut. With Seguin taking shifts on the first line, Soderberg centered the third line between Daniel Paille and Rich Peverley. Soderberg hasn’t played since April 28 against Ottawa in the regular-season finale. Soderberg has zero goals and two assists in six games.
