Nathan Horton Could Be Ready for Game 1 Against Maple Leafs, Says He’s ‘Excited to Be Back in It’ (Video)

Nathan Horton missed the last five games of the Bruins’ regular season after he suffered an upper-body injury during a fight with Pittsburgh’s Jarome Iginla.

Horton suited up and practiced on Tuesday for the first time since that injury and did not have any limitations during practice, which could signal that the winger is ready to hit the ice again for Wednesday’s playoff matchup against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Concussions have held Horton back in the last two postseasons, and he’s ready to leave it all on the ice this year.

Watch the video above to see what Horton had to say prior to Wednesday’s matchup.
