Sam Rosen will handle the Rangers’ radio play-by-play call for Games 5 and 6 of the Eastern Conference final after missing the first four games for health reasons.

Rosen, the Rangers’ television play-by-play voice, had been slated to fill in for Kenny Albert earlier in the series with Albert working the Western Conference final for TNT Sports.

But Don La Greca ended up working Games 1-4 alongside analyst Dave Maloney after Rosen experienced “dizziness” before the series that required hospitalization and also led to him being restricted from traveling to Florida for Games 3 and 4.

Game 5 is at Madison Square Garden on Thursday and Game 6 is in Florida on Saturday.

Albert could be back for Game 7, if there is one, pending the length of the Stars-Oilers series.
