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.
He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
