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.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
