VIDEO: Bruins' Nathan Horton Squirts Water Bottle At Lightning Fan

Nathan Horton didn't have much tolerance left for anything following the Bruins' 5-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, especially rowdy Lightning fans.

When passing by a heckling Tampa Bay fan heading into the locker room at the end of the game, Horton lost his cool and squirted water from a water bottle at the fan. Here's the video.

Horton will not be punished for the incident, according to a Tweet from Lightning reporter Damian Cristoderom that cites Bill Daly, the NHL's chief legal officer.

Neither Boston's Nathan Horton nor the Lightning will face league discipline for water bottle/rally drum incident, NHL's Bill Daley says. (via @LightningTimes)

Horton is tied for the team lead in points (16) this postseason, totaling seven goals and nine assists through 17 games. In the regular season, Horton finished with 26 goals and 27 assists, totaling 53 points.

Boston will host Tampa Bay at TD Garden in Game 7 on Friday night (8:00 p.m. EDT).
