Horton's next deal

You certainly can't fault Nathan Horton's timing. Cold for a good part of the regular season, the unrestricted free agent-to-be is playing his most productive hockey at the most opportune time -- during the playoffs. With seven goals (including three game-winners) and 10 assists (plus-21!) in 16 post-season games, Horton has been a force on the Boston Bruins' best forward line with David Krejci and Milan Lucic. Such a performance could go a long way to securing a future in Boston. Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe suggests "Horton's postseason presence may be too significant for the Bruins not to bring back".
