NHL.com @NHL

PITTSBURGH (AP) -Montreal Canadiens defenseman Hal Gill missed most of the third period of Game 5 against Pittsburgh after apparently being cut on a leg while colliding with Penguins forward Chris Kunitz.

Gill, frequently matched against Sidney Crosby's line throughout the Eastern Conference semifinals, played 1 minute, 31 seconds during the final period of Pittsburgh's 2-1 victory on Saturday night. He finished with 16:12 of playing time, about 10 minutes less than usual.

Coach Jacques Martin said only that Gill sustained a lower body injury and would be evaluated Sunday. Pittsburgh can close out the series in Game 6 on Monday in Montreal.
