Rangers get Dubinsky, Callahan back against Pens, who are without Crosby and Malkin

NEW YORK, N.Y. - While the New York Rangers are quickly getting healthier, the Pittsburgh Penguins keep losing players to injury.

Forwards Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky, and defenceman Dan Girardi returned to the Rangers lineup Tuesday night when New York faced Pittsburgh, which was again without captain Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

The Penguins also lost centre Mark Letestu on Tuesday when he injured a knee after catching his skate in a rut in the Madison Square Garden ice during the morning warmup.

Callahan came back after missing 19 games because of a broken hand, sustained Dec. 15 at Pittsburgh. Dubinsky, New York's leading scorer with 38 points, had been out five games with a stress fracture in his left leg. Girardi missed two games before the all-star break because of a rib injury.

Crosby, sidelined 10 games by a concussion, has been cleared to resume light activity. Malkin is out for a fourth straight game with a sinus infection, but he skated Tuesday and could rejoin the lineup Wednesday at home against the New York Islanders.
