Hornqvist, a 30-goal scorer during the regular season, played in Game 1 and had been out ever since with an upper-body injury. His return could particularly help the Nashville power play, which hasn’t managed a goal yet in this series. Hornqvist had 10 power-play goals this season.
Dustin Boyd came out of the lineup to make room for Hornqvist.
