Rome ejected for hit on Horton
Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome was assessed a major penalty and a game misconduct for a hit on Boston's Nathan Horton at 5:07 of Game 3 that sent Horton to the hospital.

Horton passed the puck to Milan Lucic as he approached the blue line, and Rome stepped up for the hit, dropping the Boston forward to the ice. Rome was given a five-minute penalty for interference and a game misconduct.

The game was delayed for several minutes while medical personnel attended to Horton, who was taken off the ice on a stretcher, strapped to a backboard. The Bruins said he is moving all extremities and has been taken to Massachusette General Hospital.

It was the first major penalty of the series to either team.

Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
