Progress. Biron let them down in the second. Dorsett deserves to sit. Took 3 stupid penalties.

They should have won this game. Martin Biron and Derek Dorsett are the reasons they didn't.

This game was a huge improvement for most of the team.

The Good: Richards, Callahan, McDonagh,
The Bad: Pyatt, Zuccarello,Falk
The Redden: Dorsett, Biron

Well two of those goals were completely on horrible goaltending. Biron cost the Rangers a point imo...

Get rid of Dorsett. I rarely feel that strongly about a player, but the guy is a DUD.

Lundqvist looked himself, I guess.

That's a plus.

Don't worry guys, the guy who isn't our coach says we need about 30 more games, focus on the positives!

Eh they probably played better tonight against the Blues than in our magical overhyped 11-12 season, in fact they did, minus the terrible goaltending.

We went ~65 consecutive games in 2011-12 without giving up 5 goals (in regulation and overtime). We've gone three consecutive. I'm sorry, but after what we've seen this team to be capable of defensively the last two seasons, that is unacceptable. I don't care what the reasons are.

The Rangers are a disaster right now, but it cant get worse.

The road trip isnt the nightmare. It's who they were forced to playt on the road trip that is compounding the issue.

These games --- at STL, at Anaheim, at LAK, at SJ -- these games are usually guaranteed losses at any point of the season.

The good news is that they get to play their next three games against teams who are actually worse than they are.

The Rangers can very easily be 4-4-0 heading into Detroit, then the first two weeks becomes a distant memory.

Seriously, no need for firings, trades, changes etc. At least not now.

Honestly, I think we win this game if Hank starts.

Good: Aside from the bad goal, which wasn't all on him, Hank seems back to form for him. Richards was really good, PP also major improvement. The offense in general for most of the game, excluding the first and last 7 minutes or so, was solid to good. Some boneheaded mistakes on D, but an improvement.

Bad: Dorsett and his stupid penalties. He brings some needed physicality, but he's going to hurt us down the line. Stepan isn't all the way there yet, but he's improving. Falk was a positive and a negative; I thought he played well for the most part, but took some silly penalties. Refs were also calling a very tight game, and some of the penalties were weak, but they're still penalties.

Bickel: Biron. He has no place on this team, either trade him for whatever you can get or just send him down. Either call up Talbot or sign someone (Bryz? Worth a shot...).

B- overall, SIGNIFICANT improvement from last 2 games, and I truly think that if Hank played, we win. It's still a loss, but, I'm surprisingly OK with the outcome.

No one has mentioned it but Zuccarello needs to go. If he isn't scoring, he is a completely useless player at the nhl level.

Loss is a loss but there's something to build on. Those were some really soft goals by Biron. Ain't ruining my weekend, I tell ya what.

The positive:

We outplayed them most of the game. Our PP was very good. Cally with 2 goals. With a real goalie in net, providing the Blues would have played like this we get at least a point.

The negative:

Biron needs to be in the ECHL at this point he's a scrub. Dorsett is disgusting excuse for a hockey player and if he never plays another shift in the NHL it'll be too soon. We looked completely lost, running around in our zone like the last 2 games in the 3rd. Like the Blues woke up.

goaltending atrocious again

this time it was THE reason we lost the game

biron didn't have to make a BIG save he had to make a couple routine saves.

laughable his performance he should be gone after tonight

and he should take pyatt dmoore and mza with him

dorsett on a short short leash if i'm AV

I think we can do better with regards to some players on this team.

How much longer are we going to say "it was an improvement" ? A few more of these and you wonder if Vigneault will last. This team up to this point has shown that it cant play a offensive possession game because many of the players cant properly manage and distribute the puck. Del Zotto comes to mind. He's been PUTRID.

It's a new system, but they're not helping themselves either with some of these personnel decisions.

You know it's going to be a defensive battle when Del Zotto leads Rangers d-men in ice time.

Dorsett needs to be scratched next game to calm down. He can be a real spark for this team if he calms the **** down with the PIMs.

Better. I guess. A loss is still a loss.

Good:
Richards has been our best forward
Cally had a good game


Bad:
Dorsett needs to smarten up.
We need a new back-up goalie. Biron is done.
Boyle has been terrible on faceoffs

I was really pulling for Biron tonight on like, a personal level.

There is no person on the planet I hate right now more than Derek Dorsett.
