D Gill to miss Game 2 against Red Wings

The SportsXchange

Nashville Predators defenseman Hal Gill said he will miss his second consecutive playoff game Friday night.

Gill, who is suffering from a leg injury suffered from taking a shot off the ankle, will sit out Game 2 of the Western Conference first-round series at home against the Detroit Red Wings, according to the Nashville Tennessean.

"I'm going to give it some more time," he said "I don't think at this point I can help the team. We have some good players that can play so I will let them go."

The teams combined for 14 power plays during Game 1, which Nashville won 3-2. Gill, who is 6-foot-7, is known as an excellent special-teams player.

"To win is awesome, I don't care how it happens," said Gill, who was acquired this season from the Montreal Canadiens. "Those are the games you want to be a part of, those are the fun ones - playoff hockey is the most exciting thing I've ever had in my life. It's tough not to play."
