NEW YORK — Veteran defenseman Hal Gill, who played in only six games during the regular season, is in the Philadelphia Flyers’ postseason lineup for the first time for Game 5 against the New York Rangers. Gill has plaed in 110 career playoff games during his 16-year NHL career.
The 30-year-old Gill is replacing defenseman Nick Grossmann, who injured his right knee in the Flyers’ 2-1 home win on Friday in Game 4. The series is tied 2-2.
The Rangers are also making a change in their Sunday lineup, inserting 21-year-old forward J.T. Miller in place of veteran agitator Daniel Carcillo, who is a healthy scratch.
Carcillo played in the previous two games after sitting out the first two and Miller, who had three goals and three assists in 30 games this season, is making his postseason debut.
