Horton and Rask both ready to go
By James Murphy
BOSTON -- Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask (offseason knee surgery) and winger Nathan Horton (concussion in Game 3 of the Cup finals), were both declared healthy by coach Claude Julien after the team reported for physicals and the start of training camp Friday.
“As we speak right now, everything seems as though it’s a go,” Julien said of Horton. “There’s been no red flags yet, and we don’t expect any.”
As for Rask, Julien said the Finnish netminder was not limited in any way.
“Right now he’s ready to go. ... Whether he has a little of stiffness, which is a normal thing for anybody coming off surgery, we’ll be able to tell more as we grind through camp here,” said Julien. “But right now there’s no limitations for Tuukka and we’re going to go about it as though he’s 100 percent.”
