Video: Aaron Rome’s Hit on Nathan Horton

Nathan Horton

Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals started with bad news for the Bruins as Nathan Horton was knocked out of the game by a cheap shot from Canucks’ defenseman Aaron Rome. Horton was blindsided and hit in the head by Rome who received a five minute game misconduct for his cowardly hit. Rome was ejected, and the Bruins went on to win 8-1.

Video Here…

Horton was taken to Mass General where he was reported to be conscious and moving all of his extremities.

  1. This was a momentum hit, and Horton was too busy watching his pass. Rome’s contact was shoulder to upper chest, not head. Horton’s head gave the ice a pretty good smack. If Chara got nothing for his hit on Pacioretty, there should be no suspension here either. Arguably, Chara’s hit was also a momentum play.

  2. Sorry, but that was a clean hit Boston fans. Injury was from head hitting ice, NOT from Rome contact. Maybe a little late, but heck Horton is an artist at throwing blind side punches when no one is watching either.
