Patric Hornqvist Headshot

Hornqvist (upper body) will not play Thursday against Ottawa.

The power forward attempted to come back, taking line rushes Thursday, but the injury won't let him participate in Game 7. Hornqvist's absence will once again be missed as a net-front presence on the power play.

Patric Hornqvist Headshot

Hornqvist (upper body) will not play Thursday against Ottawa, despite taking line rushes.

All signs pointed to Hornqvist playing Game 7 after having a fiery warmups, but he'll watch from the sidelines yet again. It is unclear whether this was a true game-time decision, or simply a bluff by the Penguins. Nevertheless, he won't be on the ice, and his next chance to return will only be if the Pittsburgh advances to the Stanley Cup Finals.

Justin Schultz Headshot

Schultz will play in Game 7 against the Senators on Thursday,

Schultz, who has missed the last four games, will pair with Ian Cole. He has two goals and eight points in 14 playoff contests and will give the team a boost on the power play.

Colby Rasmus Headshot

Rasmus went 2-for-4 with a double and four RBI during Thursday's win over the Angels.

Rasmus is proving to be a nice addition to the Tampa Bay lineup since returning from a groin injury May 2, as he's now drove in 14 runs through 18 games. His fantasy ceiling is capped because of his struggles against southpaws, and the 30-year-old outfielder is notoriously streaky, but he can pile up counting stats in a hurry while locked in at the dish.

Patric Hornqvist Headshot

Hornqvist (upper body) took line rushes Thursday, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

This would be Hornqvist's first game since Game 1 of this series. In his 13 playoff games this season, the 30-year-old winger has scored four goals, added three assists, and fired 30 shots on net. Although he's a fourth-line player, he makes up for it from being on the top power-play line as well as adding a considerable physical presence.
7:47 pm (EST)
Alexandre Burrows Headshot

Burrows (lower body) will not draw into the lineup for Thursday's Game 7 against the Penguins.

Burrows will remain sidelined for a fourth consecutive contest and, if Ottawa can't pull out the win Thursday, his last game will have been Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Chris Kelly is slated to draw back into the lineup Thursday with Burrows still on the mend.
7:44 pm (EST)
Matt Andriese Headshot

Andriese (5-1) threw eight scoreless innings with six hits and two walks allowed while striking out five batters during Thursday's win over the Angels.

After his worst start of the season against the Yankees last time out, this was a spectacular bounce-back showing from Andriese. He's posted admirable fantasy numbers with a 3.24 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 8.0 K/9 to go along with his five wins. While the 27-year-old righty is clearly deserving of more virtual attention going forward, it is probably still wise to consider avoiding daunting matchups. His upcoming road start against Texas likely qualifies and will be a telling outing.
7:44 pm (EST)
Justin Schultz Headshot

Schultz (upper body) is on the ice for warmups prior to Game 7 on Thursday against Ottawa, Wes Crosby of NHL.com reports.

The 26-year-old blueliner hasn't played since Game 2 of this series against Ottawa, and he took line rushes Thursday, meaning he'll be in the lineup. Schultz has had a solid postseason, scoring two goals and adding six assists in 14 games. He's an important contributor due to his substantial power-play ice time, making him extremely valuable in daily leagues at this time of year.
7:42 pm (EST)
Jeanmar Gómez Headshot

Gomez (3-1) pitched a scoreless 11th inning with a walk and a strikeout during Thursday's win over Colorado.

Gomez last pitched May 4 and was then placed on the disabled list with an elbow injury May 9. After saving 37 games last season, he projects to pitch in high-leverage situations going forward, but he probably won't return to the closer role immediately. Gomez currently sports a 7.30 ERA and 1.70 WHIP through 12.1 innings.
