NEWARK, N.J. -- Florida Panthers
defenseman Jason Garrison
will be sidelined for Game 4 of his team's Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the New Jersey Devils
at Prudential Center.
Garrison was a late scratch with what the team called a lower-body injury. He was replaced in the lineup by Keaton Ellerby
, who will be making his playoff debut this season.
Garrison has been a lynchpin in the Panthers' lineup this season and, in particular, the playoffs. He has one goal and two points in three games against the Devils. Garrison scored his first playoff goal and totaled 20:15 of ice time in Florida's 4-3 victory in Game 3 on Tuesday.
