Horton laid motionless on the ice for several minutes, but was speaking to trainers, and was eventually carried off the ice on a stretcher.

Rome, who received a five-minute major penalty for interference as well as a game misconduct, left the ice immediately after the hit and headed to the Canucks' dressing room.

Boston was unable to convert on the power play, squandering away a perfect opportunity to take an early lead. The Bruins trail the Cup FiInals two games to one against the Canucks.

Boston and Vancouver are currently scoreless with nearly six minutes left in the first period.
