Nathan Horton couldn't remember what year it was, when asked if he'd ever scored a goal in overtime in the playoffs prior to joining the Bruins.

"Once before, with Oshawa,'' Horton said, mentioning the Ontario Hockey League team he played two seasons for as a teenager. "It was Game 7, though.''

He's got plenty of new memories to replace that one — which came in 2003, for the record. On a slightly bigger stage, he's now accomplished the feat twice in five days. Horton had so much fun ending Game 5 Saturday night in double overtime that he booked a repeat performance last night. The stakes were much higher this time, since any Game 7 means win or go home. Horton, evidently, was ready to pack his bags. Next stop: Philadelphia.
