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

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
