Rangers Camp: Dubinsky feels no leg pain
GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Brandon Dubinsky reports no problems with his left leg, which bothered him last season after he had to miss five games in January because of a stress fracture. Dubinsky also said he changed his skate boots and adjusted his offseason training program in order to make sure the problem doesn't arise again.

In order to keep the amount of pounding on his legs down, Dubinsky moved into a softer boot and stopped jogging. He did not run in the Rangers two-mile timed run Friday and won't do it Saturday either. He's doing conditioning bike rides instead.

The bike, in fact, is something Dubinsky has become quite familiar with. He rode a stationary bike this summer and worked on a machine that simulates running but keeps the stress on his legs and knees to a minimum.

"We're not exactly sure what happened or what caused it, but there is no pain now where last year there was certainly some pain and a lot of complaining before we did the testing and found out what it was," Dubinsky said.
Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
