Horton, McQuaid out vs. Panthers
By James Murphy
BOSTON -- Bruins coach Claude Julien said this morning that forward Nathan Horton (upper body) and defenseman Adam McQuaid (lower body) will miss today's game against the Florida Panthers at TD Garden.
Horton appeared to injure either his wrist or hand in a fight with Pittsburgh's Jarome Iginla in the Bruins' 3-2 loss to the Penguins on Saturday while McQuaid was the recipient of a low and questionable hit from Penguins forward Matt Cooke in the second period. As of noon Sunday, there was no word if the NHL would review Cooke's hit on McQuaid.
Horton has struggled this season, going without a point in his last five games and recording just 13 goals and 22 points through 43 games. McQuaid, who has just a goal and three assists in 28 games, recently returned from a shoulder injury suffered on March 19 that kept him out of 11 games.
