Patric Hornqvist found the back of the net in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Hornqvist broke Brian Elliott's shutout early in the third period, but that's the only offense the Penguins were able to muster in Game 2. Pittsburgh's lethal power play failed to convert on all four of their chances, which didn't help their cause tonight. Hornqvist finished the game with a minus-1 rating and 16 penalty minutes (he was given a game misconduct for an altercation with Brandon Manning late in the third period). The 31-year-old now has one goal and one assist in two games this postseason. Justin Schultz and Brian Dumoulin registered the assists on Pittsburgh's only goal. This best-of-seven series is all tied up at one heading to Philadelphia.
