He saw Marian Gaborik get stapled to the back wall on a borderline hit by Toronto defenseman Jeff Finger after No. 10 had been foiled on a breakaway 8:14 into the second period with the Rangers up 3-0 in a game they would win 5-1.
And so Dubinsky immediately went after Finger, engaging him even if it cost him an extra two minutes in the box. It's what winning players do. It's what winning teams do.
"I think it's a fine line in that you don't want to jump in and hurt your team by going a man down, but at the same time, you have to protect your best player, and Gabby is our best player, so I went," Dubinsky said.
