CHICAGO – Nathan Horton practiced this afternoon at the United Center. Horton remains day-to-day, said Claude Julien. The right wing’s availability for Game 2 tomorrow is undetermined. Horton was unavailable for comment.

Horton shot and passed the puck without limitations. Horton, however, did not take every line rush with Milan Lucic and David Krejci, his regular linemates. Tyler Seguin took shifts at right wing with Lucic and Krejci when Horton didn’t rotate through.

Horton suffered an upper-body injury during first overtime of Game 1. It was likely related to the injury Horton sustained during a fight with Jarome Iginla on April 20. Horton missed the last five regular-season games.

If Horton cannot play, Carl Soderberg could make his NHL playoff debut. With Seguin taking shifts on the first line, Soderberg centered the third line between Daniel Paille and Rich Peverley. Soderberg hasn’t played since April 28 against Ottawa in the regular-season finale. Soderberg has zero goals and two assists in six games.

The Bruins’ possible lineup without Horton:

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Tyler Seguin
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Jaromir Jagr
Daniel Paille-Carl Soderberg-Rich Peverley
Kaspars Daugavins-Chris Kelly-Shawn Thornton

Zdeno Chara-Dennis Seidenberg
Andrew Ference-Johnny Boychuk
Torey Krug-Adam McQuaid

Tuukka Rask
Anton Khudobin
