Through 17 games this season, the veteran winger has four goals and six points with 44 hits and 45 shots on net. His current 8.9 shooting percentage is but 0.2 points below his career average.

Patric Hornqvist (undisclosed) participated fully in Tuesday's morning skate.

He said he felt good after the session, but the Penguins wouldn't confirm if he would be in the lineup Tuesday night. Coach Mike Johnston still had to speak with the trainers to make sure Hornqvist had the green light, but he thought the 28-year-old winger looked ready to go.

Patric Hornqvist scored a strange goal to cap off Saturday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.

Perhaps in a definitive moment of Jonathan Bernier's mindset, Hornqvist was able to tap one past the unfocused and listless netminder off a dump-in for just his second goal of the season. Hey, it looks like a rip in the books at least. Hornqivst played 15:49 including 4:10 on the power play with three shots on goal.

Patric Hornqvist was dealing with a broken rib.

Patric Hornqvist was only Pittsburgh player to score in the Penguins' 2-1 overtime loss to the visiting New York Rangers Wednesday night.

The loss means Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby and the rest of the Pens are on the brink of elimination. They trail the Rangers 3-1 in the best-of-seven, first-round series, with Game 5 in New York Friday night. Hornqvist's goal gave the Pens a 1-0 lead early Wednesday. The right winger scored his second goal of the postseason at 2:22 of the first period but the star-studded Pittsburgh lineup couldn't get the puck past Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist after that. Pittsburgh gained its first 1-0 lead of the series when Hornqvist deflected defenseman Ben Lovejoy's shot from the point past Lundqvist. Crosby chipped the puck up to the point from the slot to defenseman Paul Martin, who shoveled it over to Lovejoy for the shot from the right point. Lovejoy and Martin were credited with the assists.

Hornqvist has 24 goals and 46 points in 58 contests this season. He would have likely surpassed his career-high of 53 points if injuries hadn't slowed him down. There's a good chance he'll set a new personal best in 2015-16 though.
