Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that Derek Dorsett will sit out tonight's game in Buffalo with an injured wrist. Dorsett sat out two games last week with the same injury. Taylor Pyatt will take his place in the lineup.
Alain Vigneault also announced that John Moore will be re-inserted into the lineup with Justin Falk being sent back to the press box.
…with the Rangers only two physical players out of the lineup, expect Ott and Scott to have a field day tonight. While Ted Nolan has been unable to spark this Sabres team since his hire, he's still a very good coach who will take note of the lack of toughness in the Blueshirts lineup tonight and try to exploit it. Just have to hope Scott doesn't do this to Rick Nash tonight…
…seriously though. If Scott were to do that, who the hell would come to Nash's aid? Zuccarello?
…at least Pouliot and Pyatt will both be in the lineup. So there's that.
…the Rangers are going to have to combat this likely Sabres physical onslaught with speed, speed and more speed. It they can't catch you, they can't hit you.
Henrik Lundqvist will start in goal tonight.
…wait? No Talbot?
