Horton returns to arena, hands out jacket

BOSTON --- Nathan Horton, forced out of the Stanley Cup Final due to a concussion, returned to TD Garden for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final.

He met with the team after the Bruins’ 4-0 victory to present the throwback jacket --- which goes to the game’s MVP voted on by the players --- to Rich Peverley, who took Horton’s spot in the first line.

“He came in the room and everyone’s pretty emotional to just be able to see him,” said Peverley, who had two goals in Game 4. “No one has seen him since everything happened so he wanted to give it out tonight.”

Horton was removed from the ice on a stretcher early in Game 3 and transported to an area hospital, where he stayed overnight. The team announced that he was out for the duration of the playoffs on Tuesday, the same day the league suspended Vancouver’s Aaron Rome for four games for initiating the collision that led to the injury.

“I was very, very happy to see Nathan up and around in the locker room,” Boston goalie Tim Thomas said. “I wasn't exactly sure of his status. You know, I'd heard that he was OK, but then I heard it was a severe concussion. When I personally got to see him in the locker room, I was incredibly happy and it gave me a big boost.”

The jacket hung in Horton’s locker following Game 3.

Put your dilemma aside CKB. Bruins are made up just like the Flyers are- tough and deep both on D and up front. You know what Bruins fans have been through recently and youre right about Vancouver's arrogance. Root for the Bruins, we're the only good guys left.

If it wasn't for the Patriots, the Celtics, and most of all the Red Sox... I swear I would be rooting for Boston.

Recchi will always be one of my favorite players, so I would be happy for him if you guys win.

On the flip side... there's something about Vancouver that I just don't like. Almost like an arrogance or something...

You see my dilemma here.

Everything about this series makes it a Boston Title. Who wants Vancouver after all this? Bruins lost Horton and Savard. Vancouver plays dirty....obviously. Aside form die hard Canuck fans..I assume, and would bet, that at least 85% of the unbiased fans are pulling for Boston.

Win this for Horton. He must be so bummed. FINALLY makes it to the playoffs. Then the cup. Hes at home...first period..gone for the duration. Must be devastating. Go get this cup for Horton!
