The Boston Bruins traveled to Washington without Nathan Horton this weekend but the big forward is still showing some signs of progress.’s Joe Haggerty reports that Horton is starting to skate again, although it’s anyone’s guess how far he is from taking contact in practice – let alone in NHL games.

Horton is attempting to come back from a “mild concussion” after Philadelphia Flyers tough guy Tom Sestito hit him on Jan. 22. Bruins coach Claude Julien describes him as “day-to-day,” which can really mean anything.

Haggerty points out that the Bruins were scoring 2.4 goals per game without Horton before they got things together a bit by beating the Washington Capitals 4-1.
