New York Rangers forward Filip Chytil participated in Monday’s morning skate ahead of Game 5 against the Carolina Hurricanes after missing the previous game with an illness.

Also, forward Blake Wheeler was a full-contact participant for the first time Monday morning.

Chytil, 24, returned to the ice following a six-month absence due to an upper-body injury and logged 12:02 of ice time in New York’s 3-2 overtime victory on Thursday in Game 3.

Wheeler, 37, suffered a leg injury in February and missed the rest of the regular season.

The Rangers hold a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference second-round series heading into Monday night’s game at Madison Square Garden.
