Bruins' Horton leaves with injury, does not return
The Boston Bruins took a significant hit in the first overtime of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks when top forward Nathan Horton appeared to suffer an upper-body injury. He has not returned.

CHICAGO -- The Boston Bruins took a significant hit in the first overtime of Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Chicago Blackhawks when top forward Nathan Horton appeared to suffer an upper-body injury.

He did not return to the game, won 4-3 by Chicago on a goal by Andrew Shaw 12:08 into the third overtime.

Bruins coach Claude Julien did not provide an update on Horton during his postgame remarks.

"Nothing right now," Julien said. "There's nothing to say because our doctors haven't finalized the evaluation properly."

Horton, a part of Boston's top line, was tied up with Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson with about seven minutes remaining in the first overtime. Horton went immediately to the dressing room.

Horton, who had an assist on Milan Lucic's game-opening goal, has seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points in 17 games. He is a plus-22 in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the leading total among all players.

Quote of the Day

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.

— Chicago Blackhawks owner Rocky Wirtz on signing Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane to contract extensions
