Hornqvist & Schultz Might Play Game 7

The Pittsburgh Penguins could be getting winger Patric Hornqvist and defenseman Justin Schultz back for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final Thursday night against the Ottawa Senators.

Penguins coach Mike Sullivan discussed the decision after the team’s morning skate.

Hornqvist took part in the Thursday morning practice for the first time since Game 2 of the series. Hornqvist has missed five games with an upper-body injury.

Schultz did not take part in the morning skate and has also been out since Game 2 with an upper-body injury in Game 2.

Game 7 will take place at the home of the Penguins at PPG Paints Arena starting at 8 p.m.
