Dubinsky Out, Biron To Start Against Toronto

According to Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants Brandon Dubinsky will miss his second straight game (right shoulder), while Martin Biron will get his 11th start of the season tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Dubinsky was clearly missed on Thursday night against the Senators, but the Rangers are trying to be smart with his shoulder to make sure that it does not become something more serious and linger throughout the season.  Brandon Prust is likely to take Dubinsky's spot with Callahan and Richards, but the entire lineup has to do more than they did on Thursday.

Starting Biron tonight is an interesting decision given Lundqvist's career struggles in Montreal, where the Rangers play tomorrow, but Biron did struggle earlier in the year in Montreal as well.
