Yeah Baby! The best thing about the Bruin's win wasn't the 8-1 score, but it was the way that they did it. Vancouver looked like the fatigued team out there tonight....Thomas was awesome....
Whats the word on Horton - is he still in the hospital?

Bruins winger Nathan Horton will miss the rest of the Stanley Cup Final with a severe concussion, the team has confirmed.
Horton was injured five minutes into Game 3 last night when he was hit near the blue line by Vancouver defenseman Aaron Rome. Rome, who received a five-minute interference penalty and was thrown out of the game, faces a disciplinary hearing with NHL officials at 11 a.m.
Horton spent the night at Mass General Hospital. He was tied for second on the Bruins in playoff scoring with eight goals and nine assists, and had scored three game-winning goals in the playoffs.
Game 4 is tomorrow at TD Garden at 8 p.m.
Earlier this morning, Boston.com columnist Tony Massarotti reported on The Sports Hub radio station that a "well-placed source" told him Horton was done for the season.
The Globe's Fluto Shinzawa reports Canucks defenseman Aaron Rome has been suspended four games for his hit on the Bruins' Nathan Horton in the first period of Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final last night at TD Garden.
The ruling ends Rome's season because only four games are left to be played, and the series could end in fewer games.
Rome had a disciplinary hearing this morning with NHL senior vice president of hockey operations Mike Murphy. He received a five-minute interference penalty and a game misconduct at the time of the hit.
As a fan rooting for a team - congratulations in a victory for said team is in association with.. but I know what ya mean.. always seems a little awkwardDropkickFluties wrote:*lol* Don't congratulate me. I'm just a spectator....an enthusiastic one currently, but just another passenger on the bandwagon. Loved the energy the B's brought to this game. And they shattered Luongo's confidence... if the Bruins can score in the 1st period on Wednesday he'll be ruined for the rest of that game. I just hope they didn't blow their entire load tonight and saved a few more goals for the rest of the series. This kind of game gives me hope though because games 1 and 2 were very winnable battles as the visiting team. After this beatdown, Vancouver can't feel too good about their chances of winning in Boston.

I heard on the radio today that the hit came 28 frames after the puck left Horton's stick.
30 frames = 1 second.
