Bruins' Horton says he will play in Game 2

CHICAGO -- Boston Bruins right wing Nathan Horton declared himself ready to go for Game 2 on Saturday when his team faces the Chicago Blackhawks at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, RDS).

Horton revealed the news to the media following his team's morning skate at United Center, where he skated in his regular spot on the right wing on a line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci.

"I feel good," Horton said. "There are no setbacks and I'm ready to go. In the playoffs, everyone is playing physical and everyone has bruises. I'm good to go."

The Bruins trail the best-of-7 series, 1-0. The Blackhawks scored a 4-3 triple overtime victory in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Quote of the Day

It's not always going to be pretty, especially against a great goalie [Lundqvist] like that. My goals are never how you draw them up. It's just a matter of grinding it out and trying to create havoc in front and good things happen.
