Bruins forward Nathan Horton [1] was motionless on the ice roughly five minutes into the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup [2] finals Monday after taking a blindside hit to the head from Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome [3]. Horton did not have the puck as Rome dropped the first-line forward at the blueline. The back of Horton’s head was the first thing to hit the ice. After minutes without moving, Horton was taken off the ice in a stretcher. Rome was given a five-minute interference major and game misconduct.

The Bruins announced later in the period that Horton was transported to Mass General Hospital and is moving his extremities.
