Right winger Patric Hornqvist, who returned to the Pittsburgh lineup in late January after sitting out a month with a lower-body injury, scored a goal and added an assist Wednesday night to help the Pittsburgh Penguins down the visiting Detroit Red Wings 4-1.

Hornqvist picked up a rebound off the boards and tucked it into the Detroit net at 1:51 of the first period. He then assisted on Blake Comeau's goal at 12:15 of the first. Hornqvist now has 15 goals and 18 assists this season. Comeau also grabbed two points in the first period. His goal was his 12th of the season and he also had an assist, his ninth of the season, on Hornqvist's goal. Comeau was playing for the first time since sustaining an upper-body injury against the Florida Panthers on Dec. 22. He missed 20 games. Also scoring goals for Pittsburgh were the red-hot David Perron (14th) and Nick Spaling (eighth). Perron has nine goals in 16 games since Pittsburgh obtained the right winger in a trade with the Edmonton Oilers. Spaling's goal gave the Pens a 4-0 lead at 7:52 of the second period.
