Rangers forward Brandon Dubinsky suffered a shoulder injury in last night's 2-1 victory against the Phoenix Coyotes after a six-round shootout. 

He remains a game-time decision according to New York Rangers head coach John Tortorella, as reported by ESPN.com's Katie Strang.

Dubinsky took a hard hit by Taylor Pyatt of the Coyotes into the boards. Dubinsky went to the dressing room with Rangers trainer Jim Ramsay and was later back out on the ice. But he woke up today and felt sore, so he will have some time before Thursday night's game versus the Ottawa Senators to heal.

ESPN reports that Wojtek Wolski will take Dubinsky's spot in the lineup if he is unable to play in time. Under that scenario, Wolski will be paired with Ryan Callahan and Brad Richards. Wolski did practice today with Callahan and Richards—while Dubinsky sat out.

Dubinsky has three goals and two assists in the last six games after a very slow start to his season.

Wolski has not played for the Rangers since undergoing a sports-hernia surgery in November.

Unlike Erik Christensen, Wolski has not accepted an AHL conditioning stint with the Connecticut Whale. He has deferred all media questions regarding this to his agent. If Dubinsky remains healthy, Wolski may not have much of a choice.
