According to Bruins coach Claude Julien, Nathan Horton is playing as well as he ever has right now.
That’s good news for Boston, who seems to be feeding of Horton’s energy and gaining some extra points by playing hard-nosed hockey late in games. On Tuesday against the Devils, Horton provided the big game-tying goal, and Julien notes that after coming back from major concussion symptoms a year ago, there’s no hesitation in Horton’s game. That’s impressive, considering Julien’s been around long enough to see guys come back tentative after similar injuries.
