Nashville general manager David Poile on Wednesday said he is hopeful captain Mike Fisher can participate in practice Thursday morning and there’s a real good chance he could return in Game 1 of the championship series.

Schultz, who has two goals and six assists in 14 playoff games, hasn’t played since the team’s Game 2 loss on May 15 when he was injured on a hit by Senators left wing Mike Hoffman in the first period. Although he participated in warmups prior to Pittsburgh’s Game 5 win on Sunday, he didn’t make it onto the ice and remained sidelined for the team’s Game 6 loss on Tuesday.

Hornqvist, who has four goals and three assists in 13 playoff games, has been out since leaving during warmups for Game 2. He did not travel with the team to Ottawa earlier this week but has been skating on his own.

While the Penguins and Senators prepare for their last Eastern Conference finals matchup, the Predators have already locked up their first trip to the Finals after eliminating the Ducks in Game 6 on Monday.

He is the most polarizing player in the sport, hated by many as intensely as he is loved in Pittsburgh, but Crosby has grown into one of the game’s great leaders, both in action and spoken word. The confidence and swagger the Penguins play with? It all starts with Crosby.
