First-line winger Patric Hornqvist will be back in the mix tonight as the Pens look to take a 3-1 Eastern Conference Final lead on Tampa Bay.

Hornqvist, who was shook up after getting hit in the left hand by a shot on Wednesday night, was declared “available” for Game 4, per head coach Mike Sullivan (by way of the Post-Gazette).

Hornqvist has six goals and nine points through 14 games this postseason, and is Sidney Crosby‘s running mate on the top unit. So needless to say he’s an important contributor for Pittsburgh.

The 29-year-old Swede was especially good in the opening round against the Rangers, with five points in five games.
