Bruins’ Horton Will Miss Rest of Cup Final With Concussion; NHL Probes Hit

Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup Final with a concussion sustained on a high hit from Vancouver Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome last night.

The National Hockey League called a disciplinary hearing today to review the hit that sent Horton off the ice on a stretcher during the Bruins’ 8-1 victory in Game 3 in Boston.

Horton had passed the puck and was distracted when Rome lowered his shoulder and dropped him to the ice. Rome was assessed a 5-minute major penalty for interference and a game misconduct.

Horton, 26, has eight goals and nine assists this postseason for Boston, which trails 2-1 heading into Game 4 on tomorrow night.
