05/13/2013 22:25 Bruins pull off remarkable rally to top Leafs in Game 7
Patrice Bergeron tied it with 51 seconds left in regulation then scored the game-winner 6:05 into overtime on Monday night to give Boston a 5-4 victory over the Maple Leafs in Game 7 as the Bruins turned back Toronto's comeback with a rally of their own.
Nathan Horton hasn't played an NHL game since suffering a concussion back on Jan. 22, but reports are that he is well on his way to returning to the Bruins' lineup this coming season, where his nice blend of size and skill is a tremendous asset to the team's attack. Assuming his health, which hopefully will be confirmed in training camp, Horton should pick up where he left off, that is, patrolling right wing on the Bruins top line. Prior to being shut down last season, Horton, whose offensive presence was sorely missed by the team in the playoffs, notched 17 goals and 32 points in 46 games. Hes a difference-maker for the Bruins when hes on the ice and a successful return on his part figures to help the team remain among the leagues elite squads and one of the favorites to be in position for a Stanley Cup run.
