Whenever the Bruins need a big goal against the Lightning, they should turn to Nathan Horton.
The same man who sent the B’s through to the Stanley Cup Final back in 2011 came through again on Thursday, scoring two goals to lead Boston to another W.
Yes, Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand scored to continue strong starts, but Horton’s heroics were what helped spark the B’s to this one. That’s why NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding Horty our “Throwback Thunder” player of the game. Who’s yours?
