Update, 7:30 p.m.:
...no idea what to think about this other than AV losing confidence in guys like Del Zotto and Moore, so he feels the need to have an extra defenseman.
The New York Rangers (1-3-0) visit the St. Louis Blues (3-0-0) at the Scottrade Center starting at 8:00 p.m. For a preview, visit Yahoo! Sports.

St. Louis Game Time
I dont like to say must win in October, but the Rangers need to come away with at least 2 points out of their games against the Caps and Devils this week
should i watch the replay? DZ stil making meatball passes? girardi still playing with zero emotion? frodo still obsolete? looks by the comments here taht dorsett and biron will be roommates in siberia soon.
Alrighty boys. In the words of Herb Brooks, "Better. Not good. Better"
Hope they get their act together returning to MSG.
I feel pretty good about this loss. and with those words I utter the saddest sentence of my life...LGR!!!
God. All the teams the NYR have played against this year (except PHX) show what good teams can do. They move the puck so well, have great puck possession, and look so fluid. But I'm being optimistic. It's gonna take time for this group to get used to AV's system. You can see what they're trying to do, but they are just not executing.
Seriously waive dorsett... no excuse for these 3 terrible penalties... He and Biron cost us the game
Before sending Hank in to replace Biron, I wonder if AV said something of the likes to "Hey Hank. You not pissed anymore at your D, that you're willing to go back on the ice!?"
Wasn't a tough decision, but you've got to give AV credit for pulling Biron out of there. Lundqvist giving Rangers a chance.
I know Hank's been struggling (or being left out to dry depending on your perspective) but just watching him now, you see the glaring difference between possibly the best goalie in the world (Hank) vs a NHL caliber goalie (Biron)
Is it me or is this Rangers team taking an inordinate amount of sticks and pucks to the face this season?
Sam must have called from his hotel room to let the booth know Hank's in goal, they too busy praising the Ranger's effort to notice...
what is the point of putting Hank in... might as well give him a night off. Biron better be gone tonight for Talbot or Hedberg
Biron replaced in the game tonight and you have to wonder if he'll be replaced on the roster soon as well.
Call me soft but I almost feel guilty talking about buying out Richards at this point. Only guy on the team that can finish right now.
at least the Wolfpack are about to be 3-0-0-1
and dont look now but Talbot with 32 saves on 34 shots... call him up
@shoot_the_goalie Yep I agree minus Dorsetts bonehead penalty sucking the momentum right the hell out from under The Rangers that was almost at least a point for us.
@AG_Blue Heartened by Hank standing on his head once again.
#15 - Fuckwit Pluswhich
@Trade DelZotto+Girardi4E.Kane Yeah, totally not used to them being in a game in the third period. Let's go boys!
@JustinRP37 baby steps. baby steps.
@FREE MASHINTER we are winning this game if Hank started...
@FREE MASHINTER its been like 6 or 7 already
Really a head scratcher if it's not injury related.
Or maybe this is why the Luongo/Crawford drama was never ending under AV...
@johnnyb3910 I don't knowing it runs till 2020.
@shoot_the_goalie unbelievable... the rangers are so bad that they are getting praised for effort
More than valid point. Too bad the newest CBA doesn't expire between now and then. Wouldn't mind having him (the way he's playing right now) for 1-2 years then cutting him loose.
@johnnyb3910 That would be ideal for sure.
