The New York Rangers were skating as the Black-and-Blueshirts for some time, but they’ll get some valuable players back tonight and might see another return later this week.

Steve Zipay reports that crucial center Brandon Dubinsky and high-effort winger Ryan Callahan will be back in the lineup for the team’s game against the comparably bruised Pittsburgh Penguins tonight. The team sent Evgeny Grachev down to the minors to make some room for the returning Rangers.

Various reports indicate that Vaclav Prospal won’t make his season debut until Thursday, if not later. Zipay reports that Erik Christensen isn’t quite ready to return yet, either.

The Rangers are making their fiery coach proud with some scrappy play this season. Dubinsky and Callahan are probably the best examples of that resilient spirit, so the team will surely be excited to welcome them back into the fold.
