TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Nathan Horton had another successful performance against Tampa Bay in Boston's latest road win.
Horton scored two goals and the Bruins beat the Lightning 4-2 on Thursday night.
"He's one of the elite right wingers in the league when he's on top of his game," Boston coach Claude Julien said. "He's got so much potential, and we know that. He's been through some tough times with that concussion, and hopefully we get him back healthy and get some consistency out of his game because he certainly deserves it."
Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand also scored for Boston, which improved to 6-1-1 on the road. Horton has 26 goals and 46 points in 45 games against the Lightning.
After blowing a two-goal lead, the Bruins took a 3-2 advantage on Marchand's goal from the slot with 6:02 to go in the second. Horton extended the lead to 4-2 when he redirected Zdeno Chara's pass at 2:33 of the third.
"We wanted to make sure t...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Bruins love Nathan Horton, as he’s by all accounts, one of the best teammates any NHL player could ask for. When he plays like he did on Thursday night, however, he must be their favorite guy in the world.
The big forward with the even bigger smile played his best game of the season, scoring two goals and leading the Bruins to a 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning to open...

The Lightning fell behind early and were unable to get ahead which resulted in a 4-2 loss to the Boston Bruins. Nathan Horton scored two goals for Boston Thursday night, first one coming just :45 seconds into the game. Down 2-1 in the second period, Lightning rookie Cory Conacher found the net with his shot to tie the game up at 2-2. But the tie would be short lived as Boston took...
The Bruins haven’t had much of an offensive breakout at any point this season, and some of that stems from the inability to get their top-six forwards all clicking at once. The talent is undoubtedly there for Claude Julien‘s top two lines, but getting that talent to shine all at once hasn’t quite happened yet.
In Thursday’s 4-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, however, those...
One of the biggest surprises of last year's Bruins season was a 20 goal, 39 point output from long-time Senators forward Chris Kelly, the best all-around season of his career. The performance is largely what earned him a 4-year, 12 million dollar contract with the team.
But so far this year Kelly has been somewhat absent from the score sheet. Despite playing in all 14 games...
While the Bruins season is off to about as good of a start as we could have hoped, it is worth taking a quick look ahead to this off-season when a number of key members of the current squad are set to become free agents.
The big names on this list are Andrew Ference, Nathan Horton, Anthon Khudobin, Lane MacDermid, and Tuuka Rask. All are important pieces of the current team, and...
Tonight's game was sponsored by the number 2. Bruins move to 10-2-2. Bruins scored two goals, then Lightning scored two goals, then Bruins scored two goals.
Nathan Horton scored two goals. Dougie Hamilton assisted on both of those two goals. Justin has a two inch penis. The second Tampa Bay goal was softer than Robb when he sees a naked woman.

After seven Bruins missed practice on Tuesday with flu-like symptoms, the team was back at it on Wednesday.
Practicing down in Tampa in advance of the team’s Thursday game against the Lightning, the B’s know they have a tough test in front of them after dropping both games on their Florida swing last year. Although the Panthers are struggling right now, the Lightning are boasting...
What a beautiful arena, too bad Tampa doesn't have fans
"Let's Go Bruins!" chants and huge cheers erupting when B's score here in Tampa tonight. Feels like a home game for the Black and Gold

The Boston Bruins were able to escape the cold, and escape their suspect play as they made their first road trip...
I ******* hate these three day waiting periods between games. It's probably the closest thing to being water boarded that I will ever experience outside of a Bruins power play (although not lately!). The worst part about it is that there isn't **** to write about during this time off, except for that Lindy Ruff got fired 5 years to late which is kind of a ****** thing because...
8 a.m. ET: The Bruins are scheduled to play the Lightning on Thursday night, and this time around, there’s no chance this one is being snowed out.
