Nathan Horton practices as Bruins prepare for Game 2

CHICAGO — Nathan Horton was on the ice as the Bruins practiced Friday at United Center. Horton is dealing with chronic left shoulder subluxation where his shoulder continues to pop out of its socket and has had to receive shots to deal with the pain prior to every game this postseason. He left Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday due to the injury and would not have been able to play had the B’s played Thursday. The Bruins consider him day-to-day and he is a possibility for Saturday’s Game 2.
Horton and Tyler Seguin, the latter of whom played in his place after he left Game 1, took turns on the right wing of David Krejci‘s line. The Bruins had the following forward lines in practice:
Lucic – Krejci – Seguin/Horton
Marchand – Bergeron – Jagr
Paille – Soderberg – Peverley
Daugavins – Kelly – Thornton
Torey Krug, who had a costly turnover in the third period of Game 1 to lead to a Dave Bolland goal, remained on the third pairing with Adam McQuaid. The Bruins’ D pairings were as follows:
Chara – Seidenberg
Ference – Boychuk
Krug – McQuaid
