Judging by our lack of offense you should

Dubi and Mitchell are both 52% guys, generally.

Zucc rarely takes them. Stepan and Arty are both well below par.

Dubinski in, Mitchell out for tonight?

http://www.nhl.com/ice/blogpost.htm?id=9743

Quote:
Dubinsky had just one assist in seven games against the Senators, but he could help in the faceoff circle. During the regular season, he won 51.9 percent of his draws. During the postseason, the Rangers have won 48 percent of faceoffs, 15th out of 16th teams -- only the Devils have won fewer faceoffs.

Here's a best guess at the Rangers' lineup for Game 5 against the Devils:

Carl Hagelin - Brad Richards - Marian Gaborik
Chris Kreider - Derek Stepan - Ryan Callahan
Ruslan Fedotenko - Brian Boyle - Brandon Prust
Artem Anisimov - Brandon Dubinsky - Mike Rupp

Ryan McDonagh - Dan Girardi
Marc Staal - Anton Stralman
Michael Del Zotto - Stu Bickel

Henrik Lundqvist
Martin Biron

If Dubi is back tonight, any way we can bring in Voros and Zherdev? That line helped a lesser team win 7 straight in 2009...we could REALLY use 7 straight wins right now

Dubi might just bring some spark to the Blueshirts. I understand he worked his ass off to get back and I am sure his teamates appreciate that.

I'd be perfectly fine with 6 straight wins .

Pffft.....I remember. I've been calling Mitchell Johny Gretzky for months. That was classic reminiscent of #99 on that Kreider Goal via McDonagh shot. That curl and patience with the puck.

Rupp is better than Voros. Zherdev vs Anisimov? Hard to tell, but they don't need 7 straight wins. Rangers need 6 and I prefer those not being straight. Want to see more hockey.

Start next season off on the right foot as well

But in all seriousness, Dubi has shown he can be brilliant in short spans, now would be as good a time as any to go on the scoring streak that he hasnt put together this season

yeah...he stayed out there longer...if the rangers drop the game tonight, i think torts mixes it up even more and bring zuke in the lineup, if the rangers win tonight youll see the same lineup on friday....i think zuke could be seen in the next round if the rangers find a way to get past new jersey...i really want to see zuke in there though!

knowing Dubinsky, I am sure that if he plays tonight he'll at least be skating all over the place. Who knows if it'll result in anything positive.

I think Rupp is going to be awake after last game. Prust will be hungry too. I hope they end up on the same line together. Would actually like a Rupp-Dubinsky-Prust line to at least get a shot. They may be able to get an ugly one. If nothing else they'd be a line that would eat time in the offensive zone.

All playoffs, in games like these, someone has stepped up. It's a question of who?

And the guys on this team better have the mentality "If not now, then when? If not me, then who?"

Never though I'd see the day Mitchell gets complimented for his offensive ability.

Has he been good? yes.

Bottom line is Dubi is MUCH MUCH better, why not swap them?

RE: Zuccarello...if the Rangers last long enough as to where Zuc is healthy enough to play, theres no way he doesnt play.
