Yeah but it was their 3rd game in 4 nights. Of course they'd be out of energy before the game even started.

The hands are there, the legs aren't and he's in his own head about the shoulder, he doesn't trust it 100%.. Unfortunately, we have to give him until next season before piling on.

We don't often agree, but I do agree on this. As someone who's had a major shoulder injury previously (although nowhere near the extent of Horton's), I can understand completely the almost paralyzing fear that can go along with it even after being cleared. With other injuries, it's something where the pain might intensify and subside. With shoulders, the number of muscles and amount of connective tissue can play games with your mind.

Every time there's stiffness in the shoulder, it's not because there's a tight muscle, it's because a tendon is pulling away. Every time you take a normal motion and feel something the slightest bit off, it must be because the joint is tearing apart. Every time there's a warm feeling, it must be a blood clot; every time there's a pang of pain, it must be a pinched nerve; every time there's a click, it must be the labrum starting to fray; every time there's a pop, it must be a partial dislocation. Just working through that mental aspect is a long process, trumped only by recovery from a concussion.

As much as he is frustrating me with his poor play and penalties, you are spot on.

Regarding Horton, I remember reading from Bruins fans that Horton could be a floater during the regular season but turned into a beast during the playoffs. We need him to be in playoff mode now.
