Nathan Horton Says He’s ‘Not Wayne Gretzky,’ But Knows He Needs to Shoot More


Claude Julien issued a challenge to Nathan Horton prior to Tuesday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning, saying the forward needed to pick up his game. Horton responded by scoring two of Boston's three goals.

It still wasn't enough for the Bruins, though, as Dominic Moore broke a 3-3 tie late in the third period, and the Lightning came up away with a 5-3 victory.

After the game, Horton addressed the media, during which the 26-year-old said that he needs to put more shots on net. The winger admitted that he's not Wayne Gretzky, but he still feels that he can continue to improve his game.
