After a one-game absence, Rangers rookie forward J.T. Miller returned to the lineup for Tuesday night’s 5-2 win over the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center.

Miller, 20, also was moved back to center, skating between Marian Gaborik and Ryan Callahan, finishing with 17:11 of ice time and two shots on goal.

“I wanted to put Miller in the middle of the ice,” coach John Tortorella said. “I thought he played very well.”

With Miller coming back in, Tortorella chose Darroll Powe as the healthy scratch up front. Powe has played in 20 games for the Rangers, including what was 14 straight after coming back from a concussion. He was acquired in an early February trade that sent Mike Rupp to the Wild, and is pointless on the season.
