Nathan Horton took a big hit in overtime to allow David Krejci to get up ice and eventually score the game-winning goal on Wednesday night in Toronto.
Horton was blasted by a pinching Dion Phaneuf as the Bruins forward poked the puck off the boards and up to his linemate just inside the B’s blue line. While he was slow to get up from the awkward hit, he told reporters that he felt fine on Thursday afternoon, according to NESN’s Naoko Funayama.

Nathan Horton says he feels fine after taking final big hit from Phaneuf. Did see him coming, tried to go around him. All smiles, all good.—
