Pens' Hornqvist Returns Tuesday, Achieves Goal
Playing in his first game since Dec. 27, Hornqvist potted an empty-net goal against the Jets on Tuesday.Hornqvist admitted he was a bit sluggish early in the game but said he felt stronger in the third period. The winger gives Pittsburgh a net-front power-play presence, something that's been sorely missed in the last month. Hornqvist will continue to play on the No. 1 line and see regular time on the team's top power-play unit. The Penguins are counting on him for a strong second-half finish.
