BOSTON --- Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton will not be suspended for squirting water and then throwing the bottle at a fan after Game 6 on Wednesday night, CBSSports.com has confirmed.

The incident came moments after the Tampa Bay Lightning held on for a 5-4 victory to force a Game 7 at TD Garden on Friday. The video, apparently shot by a fan who probably didn’t get implied or express written consent from the NHL to film the action, first made the rounds after it was posted by Mike Corcoran of WHBO-AM, an ESPN Radio affiliate in Tampa.

Plastic noisemakers handed out to the fans as they entered the St. Pete Times Forum rained down on the ice, one hitting Bruins forward David Krejci on the helmet, as this video shows:



While Horton won’t be suspended, there’s likely a fine in the offing.

So what makes this different from New York Rangers coach John Tortorella’s bottle toss at a Washington Capitals fan during the first round of the playoffs two years ago? He was forced to sit out Game 6 of that series. For one, Tortorella’s team wasn’t being pelted with pieces of hard plastics and secondly a coach needs to set a better example.
