Nathan Horton on D&H: ‘It’s like a family already’

Posted By Jerry Spar On October 22, 2010 @ 1:33 pm In General | 8 Comments

Bruins forward Nathan Horton [1] checked in with the Dale & Holley show Friday to talk about the B’s fast start to the season. Horton has four goals and three assists in five games as the Bruins have gone 4-1-0.

To hear the interview, including Horton’s thoughts on David Krejci [2] and Zdeno Chara [3], go to the Dale & Holley audio on demand page [4].

Horton is enjoying his new team after spending his first six seasons with the Florida Panthers [5] in the Miami area, where hockey obviously does not have the same importance. “This is what every player dreams about playing, just this type of atmosphere, and this city,” he said of Boston. “It’s not like you can imagine. Once you’re there, it’s pretty amazing.”

Horton said no matter where he is, his style remains the same. “You have to perform,” he said. “Even if you’re not putting up points or anything, you have to work hard and be a team guy and just play hard for your teammates. I think that’s what everyone’s trying to do. We like each other as a team. It’s like a family already. Everyone gets along. It’s an unbelievable feeling when you want to come to the rink every day, you’re going to win games, and I think everyone’s having fun.”

Regarding the B’s goaltending situation, Horton said Tuukka Rask [6] has not shown any signs of disappointment despite serving as Tim Thomas [7]‘ backup the last four games. “He’s been great,” Horton said. “He knows he’s a great goaltender. He’s going to get his shot. ‘€¦ He’s still having fun. Nobody can score on him in practice, too.”
