Rangers, Penguins make minor tweaks for Game 5

May 9, 2014, 7:08 PM EDT

The New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins are about to kick off Game 5 on Friday, with both teams making some changes from Game 4.

Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault is going back to one of his old lineups, which means that John Moore is in for Raphael Diaz while Derek Dorsett (pictured getting punched) takes Dan Carcillo‘s spot as a pest with a touch of offense:

At least partially because of Brook Orpik’s injury issues, the Penguins are bringing defenseman Robert Bortuzzo back into the mix.

    “…which means that John Scott is in for Raphael Diaz…”
    John Scott is in for Raphael Diaz?? Must’ve missed that trade deadline deal between the Sabres and Rags. Pens better keep their heads up!

    What is AV thinking putting in John Scott? This isn’t the regular season. Does John Scott even have any playoff experience? Maybe we will get to see Scott and Engelland go at it. Oh, and I guess if you are a Ney York team you can put in players from other NY teams now, if that is the case, if I were AV I’d take John Tavares over John Scott

    So I guess NYR fans are not the only ones to boo their players !
