Nashville Predators defenseman Hal Gill will miss Game 4 of the team's Western Conference Quarterfinal series against the Detroit Red Wings.
Gill participated in Tuesday morning's skate wearing skate guards, the first time he'd gone through a game-day skate since incurring a lower-body injury in the second-to-last game of the regular season.
Gill sat out the regular-season finale and hasn't played in the series, but is making progress.
"He's improving every day, made some real good improvement," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "He's not in [Tuesday], but really good improvement. I thought he looked very good, actually."
