Bruins: Horton, McQuaid out, Lucic, Hamilton in

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins will play the Florida Panthers at TD Garden Sunday without forward Nathan Horton.

Horton, third on the Bruins with 13 goals, was injured Saturday during a first-period fight with Jarome Iginla during the Bruins' 3-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Horton is day-to-day, according to coach Claude Julien.

Defenseman Adam McQuaid also will sit out against Florida. McQuaid left the game Saturday in the second period with a lower-body injury after a hit from Penguins forward Matt Cooke. McQuaid played the third period, but Julien said the blueliner also is day-to-day.

Rookie Dougie Hamilton and veteran forward Milan Lucic, who were healthy scratches Saturday, are expected to be in the lineup against Florida.

Here is the lineup the Bruins will use, based on pre-game warmups:

Milan Lucic - David Krejci - Rich Peverley

Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - Tyler Seguin

Carl Soderberg - Chris Kelly - Jaromir Jagr

Daniel Paille - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara - Dougie Hamilton

Wade Redden - Dennis Seidenberg

Andrew Ference - Johnny Boychuk

Tuukka Rask

Anton Khudobin

Injured: Nathan Horton (upper body), Adam McQuaid (lower body)

Scratched: Matt Bartkowski, Jay Pandolfo, Kaspars Daugavins, Aaron Johnson

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.

— Forward Scott Hartnell on his upcoming season with the Columbus Blue Jackets
