Dubinsky, Prust back in Rangers lineup for Game 5

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

The center 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 postseason. 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 defense from forward, and defenseman Steve Eminger - who played the previous two games but in only three this entire postseason - was scratched to make room for Prust.

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
