Boston Bruins head coach Claude Julien confirmed today that Nathan Horton is doing okay and he will suit up and play in the potential series clinching Game 5 against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Natahn Horton took a pretty big hit from Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf shortly before David Krejci's game winner in overtime last night. Phaneuf landed the hit on Horton, but in the process ran into two of his own teammates setting up a two-on-one that led to David Krejci's goal to win it. Horton was slow to get up after the hit, but fans were focused on Krejci's goal rather than Horton. Julien was asked about the health of Horton and if he held his breath after the hit, “Yeah, absolutely. You always kind of…but he got hit in the body, so he’s good.” Horton has a history of concussions dating back to Aaron Rome's hit that knocked him out for the remainder of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals against the Vancouver Canucks. Horton then missed the second half of last season after suffering another concussion
