Found January 16, 2012 on NY Rangers Blog:
Before last night's game, Pat Leonard reported that the Rangers are hopeful Brandon Dubinsky (shoulder) will recover in time for this week's schedule, which kicks off Tuesday night at home against Nashville..."We wanted to give him this weekend," Tortorella said. "Hopefully - the team will have a full day off tomorrow - and hopefully things will settle down."Leonard added that the Rangers don't know how Ruslan Fedotenko's back spasms will progress but, like Dubinsky's injury, they'd take it day-to-day....would be great to get Dubinsky back as Newbury looked like the AHLer he is last night.Remember to follow me on Twitter & Facebook or e-mail me at

Dubinsky To The Rescue?

The Rangers paltry offense has been bailed out over the past 9 games (in which they scored a meagre 19 goals) by the stellar goaltending and the overachieving defense. With Marc Staal getting back to his usual game shape the recent dip in play by Stu Bickel (rookie, to be expected) can be compensated for. However, it goes without saying that this offense needs to do more. With the...
