When the Bruins need a big goal in a big moment, more often than not it’s Nathan Horton who comes through for them.
That’s been the case for much of this season, and it was once again on Tuesday night with Horton scoring the game-tying goal with just over four minutes to go in the third period. The goal allowed the Bruins to keep their points streak alive heading into overtime and gave them a chance to win in a shootout, which they did.
Tuukka Rask and Tyler Seguin were stellar as well, but Horton’s performance is sticking out the most to NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette. So, Horton is our “Nate the Great” player of the game. Who’s yours?
