Horton left the ice in the first of three overtimes Wednesday night, when it appeared he hurt his shoulder while battling for position in front of the Blackhawks net. Horton didn’t seem to receive much contact but once the top-line winger left the ice he didn’t come back.

Horton has seven goals and 11 assists in the playoffs while playing on a line with David Krejci (postseason leader in points) and Milan Lucic.

Tyler Seguin took Horton’s place for the remainder of Game 1, and it would appear he will take Horton’s place in Game 2 if Horton can’t play.

“He skated. He had some chances,” Julien said when talking about Seguin. “He’s got speed up there with them. He’s got skill. For him, it’s an opportunity right now. He did a great job. We’ll see where everybody stands here by Saturday.”

Chicago won Game 1 in triple overtime 4-3.

Game 2 takes place Saturday in Chicago. The puck is set to drop at 8.00 p.m. Eastern.
