Nathan Horton didn't take a shift after the second period in the Boston Bruins' 6-5 shootout win at the Philadelphia Flyers. He was held out of the game by physicians after taking a hit from Tom Sestito of the Philadelphia Flyers in the second period -- a hit the Bruins claim was a blindside check that injured his head.
Here's a video of the hit and the aftermath (best available quality for now):
Sestito's check came after Horton had released the puck. Horton popped up after the check and earned a 2-minute minor that led to a Scott Hartnell power-play goal, which tied the game 2-2. Horton would play five more shifts in the game, but was held out after that.
Bruins Coach Claude Julien called it a "blindside hit," telling NESN:
"He was kept out for the obvious [reasons]," Bruins coach Claude Julien said after the game. "It was kind of a head injury. He's just being reevaluated right now. That's basically all we know and that's as far as we've gone with the evaluation."
