Nathan Horton Proves He’s Not Afraid to Drop the Gloves If Fight Comes His Way


Nathan Horton is known more for his scoring touch than his mean streak, but it's good to know that he has both qualities and uses them out on the ice.

The skilled forward opened the scoring in the first period with a nifty backhanded goal off a Milan Lucic rebound, and followed that up with a swift hit on Jack Hillen. The Islanders' defenseman didn't take too kindly to the hit, and immediately went after Horton, who was more than ready to drop the gloves for the battle.

The refs stepped in before the Hillen-Horton fight could take off, but it's always fun to watch Horton get a little chippy out on the ice. Check out all the Bruins Big Hits in the video above.
