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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
