Nathan Horton obviously not playing Game 7

VANCOUVER — In the “how is this news?” moment of the day, here’s a good one.

Bruins coach Claude Julien [1] didn’t even let a reporter finish his question Wednesday in Vancouver when the topic of Nathan Horton [2] potentially playing in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup [3] finals was brought up. The coach said there was no way Horton would be playing, a statement so obvious that the fact it became a story up here speaks volumes to how badly the media up here gets carried away. After all, Horton was diagnosed with a severe concussion just over a week ago and was ruled out for the rest of the playoffs.

“Let me cut your question short,” Julien said. “Absolutely no. It’€™s ridiculous. So let’€™s put an end to that.”

A television station in Vancouver turned Julien’s quote from Tuesday about Horton wishing he could play into a report that “Horton was trying to convince the Bruins to let him play in Game 7.”

So no, Horton is obviously not playing. It’s astonishing that even had to be said.
