Ironic twist that Bruins’ Horton scores Game 7 winning goal


Tampa Bay Lightning fans and players  have to wonder what would have happened in Game 7 of their Eastern Conference Finals if Boston Bruins’ power forward was, indeed, suspended by the NHL. Tampa Bay wanted the NHL to look into suspending Horton for an ugly incident which occurred after Game 6, which Tampa won 5-4. Following the final buzzer fans at the St. Pete’s Forum began throwing things onto the ice and were even tossing some plastic hand clapper instruments towards the Boston players. Horton, who scored the only goal two days later for a Bruins 1-0 Game 7 victory,  lost his cool after Game 6 and apparently sprayed a certain fan and threw his water bottle at him, before exiting the ice. NHL deputy commissioner, Bill Daly, said that no penalty would be handed down and that Horton would not be suspended.  “There is no way to substantiate what may .. or may not … have happened,” Daly said. Horton ended up to have the final laugh with his goal, which eliminated the Lightning and propelled his Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals against the Vancouver Canucks.
