Hornqvist returns to Predators' lineup
Hornqvist returns to Predators’ lineup
Facing elimination Monday night, the Nashville Predators had leading goal-scorer Patric Hornqvist back in their lineup for Game 6 against the Chicago Blackhawks.

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.
Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
