Dorsett returns from broken collarbone to make Rangers debut; Boyle also back for Game 2

WASHINGTON - Forward Derek Dorsett has made his debut with the New York Rangers, dressing for Game 2 of their playoff series against the Washington Capitals after recovering from a broken collarbone.

Centre Brian Boyle also returned from a right leg injury for Saturday's game.

Dorsett was thought to be done for the season when he was injured March 7 on a hit by Andrew Alberts in the Columbus Blue Jackets' win over the Vancouver Canucks. Dorsett was shipped from Columbus to New York last month at the trade deadline.

Boyle was hurt in the first period of the Rangers' loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on April 16.

Rangers defenceman Marc Staal is still sidelined with a right eye injury, and forward Ryane Clowe remains out with an undisclosed injury.

Quote of the Day

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
