Lineup notes: Dorsett out; “Unspecified defenseman” banged up

December 5, 2013, by

Per the Rangers Twitter feed, Derek Dorsett will be out tonight with a lingering wrist issue. Taylor Pyatt will return to the lineup in Dorsett’s place. Also, AV noted an unspecified defenseman is banged up and the defensemen will be a game time decision. We can speculate all we want, but we know it isn’t John Moore that is banged up, since AV confirmed he will return tonight. If the unspecified defenseman is good to go, then I assume Justin Falk, who barely played in the third period last game, will be the healthy scratch.

    Yup.. I believe its Falk. Didn’t see Pouliot on any practice lines either.

    When Dorsett returns, Pouliot will sit with Pyatt staying in the lineup. Within 2 weeks Pouliot will be put on waivers. Mark my words.
