NEW YORK -- Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Matthew Carle is in the lineup for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden on Sunday.

Carle missed Game 4 on Friday with an undisclosed injury after a hit from Rangers forward Derek Brassard.

"I feel good," Carle said after the morning skate.

Carle has played in 16 Stanley Cup Playoff games and has two assists.

Tampa Bay used seven defenseman for the seventh time in nine games. In addition to Carle, Anton Stralman, Jason Garrison, Braydon Coburn, Andrej Sustr, Nikita Nesterov and Victor Hedman were in the lineup.

Defenseman Mark Barberio, who played in Game 4, was a healthy scratch.
