NEW YORK (AP) - Rangers captain Chris Drury was in the starting lineup after missing the first two games of the regular season because of a broken finger sustained during training camp.

Drury started at center on Friday night against the Toronto Maple Leafs between top-line forwards Marian Gaborik and Alex Frolov. He replaced Erik Christensen, who injured a leg during the third period of New York's loss on Monday to the New York Islanders.

The 34-year-old Drury broke his left index finger on Sept. 20 while blocking a shot during a scrimmage. The center was expected to be sidelined for four weeks, but made a quicker return.

Drury had 14 goals and 32 points in 77 games with the Rangers last season, his third with New York and second as captain.
