Claude Julien: Nathan Horton won’t be limited if he plays Game 2

“He’s day to day and that’s what he is,” Julien said. “‘¦ If he feels good tomorrow, he’s in the lineup.”
Horton left Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals with chronic left shoulder subluxation, which he’s dealt with since injuring his shoulder in an April 20 against Jarome Iginla. He would not have been able to play had the Bruins had a game Thursday but is a possibility for Saturday. He was not limited in practice Friday, and Julien noted that if he’s in the lineup Saturday, it will be without limitations.
“If he’s in tomorrow it’s about him playing,” Julien said. “If he can’t play and I just can use him once in a while, I might as well put somebody [in] that can play the minutes. If he’s in, he’s in where he belongs. I’ll be very straightforward with you guys on that. If he’s in, he’s going to be in his position where he plays.”
