No Update On Nathan Horton Injury

from Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston,

"Nothing right now because there's nothing to say because our doctors haven't finalized the evaluation properly," Julien said.

During a Bruins power play in the first overtime, a scramble ensued in front of the Chicago net, and Horton was battling for position with Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson when he appeared to hurt his shoulder. The play continued, but Horton skated to the bench hunched over in pain and went right to the locker room. He did not return.

If Horton's injury is serious enough to keep him out of the lineup, it will be a major loss for the Bruins because their top line of Milan Lucic, David Krejci and Horton has been a powerhouse in the Stanley Cup playoffs, combining for 57 points. Horton has seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points in the postseason.
