Brandon Dubinsky limped on crutches into the trainer’s room Friday morning, his right foot immobilized in a boot. It was worth noting, an uncommon sight around this hockey team.

All around New York, the other sports teams are falling apart at the seams. The Yanks have lost Mariano Rivera and Michael Pineda. Jason Bay and Mike Pelfrey are missing from the Mets.
The Knicks have been playing without Jeremy Lin, Iman Shumpert and Amar’e Stoudemire. The Giants lost practically their whole offensive line for parts of last season.
