Aaron Rome has been suspended four games by the NHL, which will strip him of the chance to play in the biggest series of his life. That certainly stings, but it’s nothing compared to the recovery that awaits Nathan Horton.

NESN.com’s Michael Hurley was a guest on The Andrew Krystal Show on FAN 590 in Toronto on Tuesday, and he discussed the hit in detail.
