Dubinsky, Prust return to Rangers lineup for Game 5 of East finals vs. Devils

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Brandon Dubinsky is back in the New York Rangers' lineup after missing 11 playoff games because of an injury to his right foot.

The centre returned Wednesday night for Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against the New Jersey Devils. Dubinsky had been sidelined since he was injured in the Rangers' victory over Ottawa in Game 7 of the first round. He sat out all seven games of the second round against Washington and the first four against New Jersey.

Dubinsky took the place of forward John Mitchell, who was scratched for the first time this post-season. New York also welcomed back forward Brandon Prust, who served a one-game suspension Monday night when the Devils beat New York 4-1 to tie the series 2-2.

Stu Bickel shifted back to defence from forward, and defenceman Steve Eminger — who played the previous two games but in only three this entire post-season — was scratched to make room for Prust.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
