NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nashville forward Patric Hornqvist is back in the lineup for Game 6 against Chicago, which is welcome news for a Predators team facing elimination.

Hornqvist, who topped the Predators with 30 goals in the regular season, tied for the club lead with 51 points. But he played only 13 minutes in the first-round series against Chicago.

Hornqvist hasn't played since Nashville's 4-1 win in the opener, sitting out the previous four games.

The forward skated Monday morning and was on the ice for the pre-game warmup. He originally was hurt April 7 by a slap shot from teammate Shea Weber.
