Despite being a minus-two in Game 5, coach Mike Sullivan was pleased with the game played by Patric Hornqvist.

Sullivan said that Hornqvist was tough in Game 5. "[He’s] a guy that plays extremely hard, he plays in the battle areas, he goes to the net," Sullivan said. "I think he makes it really difficult for his opponents. He’s an invaluable player for us. The thing I love the most about him is I love his energy, I love the passion he brings to the game. He wears his emotions right on his sleeve. I think his energy is contagious on our bench." Hornqvist has eight goals and 12 points in 23 playoff games this season.

Hornqvist suffered the injury with 7:10 left in the game as he blocked an Alex Killorn shot. "I don't have definitive status on him," Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. "He did leave the bench. We'll probably know more [Thursday]. I don't have any updates for you at this point." Hornqvist has six goals and nine points in 14 playoff games this season so any missed time will hurt the Penguins.

Patric Hornqvist found the back of the net in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final.

Hornqvist has six goals and nine points in 12 games this postseason.

May 9 - 12:18 PM

Patric Hornqvist played only 10:36 Saturday night against the Capitals.

He had only two shifts in the third period, including once on the power play. When asked if the winger was injured, Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said, "No, we just shortened the bench," he said after the 3-1 loss. "We were trying to climb back into it. We went with the guys we thought were going and had some energy. So we tweaked the lines a little bit." Hornqvist had goals in back-to-back games entering this one, so, even if Sullivan won't admit it, there is the possibility Hornqvist is dealing with an injury.
