Hunwick in for Moore even tho AV says he's not "dishappy" with Moore's game. Laughs, corrects, says he doesn't want Hunwick sitting too long

Back to .500, now is the time to get over the hump.
My gut tells me this won’t be easy. Any team like the Flames looking to break a 5 game losing streak is going to be nasty. Now it’s time for Lundqvist and the Rangers to continue playing the sound hockey they’ve been for a week.
Derick Brassard’s loss is going to bite the Rangers in the ass, but likely not tonight. Nash and MSL should set the offensive pace and the Rangers will get the W.
