2012 NHL Playoffs, Rangers Vs. Devils Game 5: Brandon Dubinsky Likely To Play For New York

The New York Rangers could be getting a lineup boost for Wednesday's Eastern Conference Finals Game 5 against the Devils. Rangers center Brandon Dubinsky reportedly left the morning skate with the starters after full participation in the skate (via NHL.com).

Dubinsky has been listed as day-to-day with a leg injury and hasn't played a game since April 26 during the series against the Ottawa Senators. In that game on April 26, Dubinsky recorded his only assist of the playoffs. In seven games during the 2012 NHL Playoffs, Dubinsky has one assist, 11 shots and 14 penalty minutes. He had 10 goals, 24 assists and 110 penalty minutes during the regular season.

Brandon Prust will definitely return after serving a one-game suspension. He will replace Stu Bickel. If Dubinsky can return, he could take over for John Mitchell and help the Rangers on face-offs.

The Devils have not announced any lineup changes for Game 5.
