Dorsett Was Originally Thought To Be Done For The Season

WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Rangers had a familiar face and new one in their lineup when Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals got underway.

Center Brian Boyle returned after being unavailable for the Blueshirts since April 16 when he suffered a right leg injury against the Flyers. Winger Derek Dorsett made his Rangers’ debut after recovering from injury after acquired in the Marian Gaborik mega-deal.

The boost didn’t have much of an affect as the Rangers failed to score a goal in Game 2 and eventually lost to the Capitals 1-0 in overtime.

Dorsett was originally thought to be done for the season when he was injured March 7 on a hit by Andrew Alberts in the Columbus Blue Jackets’ win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Chris Kreider and Kris Newbury were healthy scratches for the Rangers. Defenseman Marc Staal is still sidelined with a right eye injury, and forward Ryane Clowe remains out with an undisclosed injury. Clowe and Staal have been skating, but were unable to play Game 2 in Washington.
