Nathan Horton never got a chance to play in the postseason in his first six seasons in the NHL with Florida.
But his former Panthers teammates are not a bit surprised to see the success the Bruins winger is enjoying in his first taste of playoff action. Horton is tied for the Bruins' team lead with 8-9-17 totals and is a plus-10 in 18 games.
"No, he's a very good player," Vancouver defenseman Keith Ballard said. "He's the type of guy when the games get harder, he just keeps going up higher and higher. We talked about it [Monday] in our meeting, he's a guy we really have to pay attention to."
