Girardi (hand) returns after missing one game

After missing one game with a hand injury, Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi will return to his team’s lineup for a clash with the Flyers on Saturday afternoon.

Girardi suffered the injury after blocking a shot in Monday’s game against the Boston Bruins.

The 31-year-old has two goals, 11 points and a plus-8 rating while averaging just over 20 minutes per game.

New York will also make another lineup change as Oscar Lindberg, who had been a healthy scratch in each of his team’s last two games, will play.

“Obviously the season goes up and down,” Lindberg told the Post earlier this week.

“I’ve just been trying to work with myself and having that consistent level in the game. It’s a lot of games and it’s hard to do that, but it’s definitely something I’m working on.”

Despite going cold after scoring four goals in his first three games, Lindberg is still on pace to score a respectable 22 goals in his first full NHL season.

New York’s opponent, Philadelphia, also got some good news on the injury front as they will welcome Shayne Gostisbehere back into their lineup.
