NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Nashville forward Patric Hornqvist has been scratched for a second straight playoff game against Chicago, leaving the Predators' top goal scorer on the bench yet again.

Hornqvist originally was hurt by a slap shot on April 7. He has played only 13 minutes since, and that was in Nashville's 4-1 win in Game 1 against the Blackhawks. He was scratched from Game 2, a 2-0 win by Chicago. He led Nashville with 30 goals this season and tied for the team lead with 51 points.
