NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Forwards Ryan Callahan and Brandon Dubinsky, and defenseman Dan Girardi returned to the Rangers lineup Tuesday night when New York faced Pittsburgh, which was again without captain Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

Even with Dubinsky, Callahan and Girardi back, the Rangers lost to Pittsburgh, 4-3.

The Penguins also lost center 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.

Are the Rangers finally getting healthy, or will the injury bug keep biting? Sound off in the comments below!
