CHICAGO — Boston Bruins forward Nathan Horton will play in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday night, three days after he left the series opener with an injury.

Horton practiced with the team Friday and participated in Boston's morning skate on Saturday.

"He feels really good," coach Claude Julien said. "He looked really good out there, the last two days. There's absolutely no reason he shouldn't play tonight."

Horton left with an unspecified upper body injury while Boston was on a power play during the first overtime of Chicago's 4-3 victory in Game 1. Horton skates with David Krejci and Milan Lucic on a formidable line that really hurt the Blackhawks on Wednesday night.

"I feel good," Horton said. "I'm ready."

Horton made a great pass to set up the first of Lucic's two goals in the series opener. The 28-year-old wing has seven goals and 11 assists in the playoffs.

He said he's not worried about being targeted by the Blackhawks.

"It's the playoffs," he said. "Everyone plays physical. Everyone plays strong."

Forward Jaromir Jagr did not participate in Boston's morning skate, but Julien said the 41-year-old veteran is fine.

"He's 100 percent. He's 41," Julien said with a grin.
