PITTSBURGH -- Montreal Canadiens defenceman 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 one 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.
