Penguins Practice: Hornqvist Teeth, Capitals Test, & Power Play



Pittsburgh Penguins Practice

After nine days off the ice, the Pittsburgh Penguins will be on the ice for four straight, including the Saturday practice at the UPMC Lemieux Complex. The drama of players returning to the lineup has abated with the return of Justin Schultz on Friday night, but as has been the running gag upon the Penguins season, there was one noticeable absence.

Penguins winger Patric Hornqvist was not on the ice for the Penguins practice.
