Update, 5:55 p.m.:
The Rangers report that Michael Del Zotto is a healthy scratch tonight. Justin Falk will take his place.
…i think it's safe to say Del Zotto's days in a Rangers uniform are numbered.
The Rangers also note that Dorsett is a game time decision with a sore wrist. Taylor Pyatt would take his place if he can't go.
Beniot Pouliot is in the lineup.
The New York Rangers (12-12-0) visit the Florida Panthers (7-13-5) at the BB&T Center starting at 7:30 p.m. For a preview, visit Yahoo! Sports.

- Sean Bergenheim has three points (2g, 1a) in the last two games.
- Former Ranger Scott Gomez has just one point (an assist) in the last 10 games and hasn't scored since opening night. And if you don't believe me that Gomez has actually scored this season, here's the proof…
