*Again, aren't Webb20's photos just awesome? I think he should sell them!!!

Okay Islanders fans. The day has finally come. Rick DiPietro will make his NHL season debut tonight in Dallas against the Stars.

I don't know whether to go light a candle or start drinking heavily. This has been the m ost anxiously awaited day for months. Can he do it? Will he get rocked? Will he have even the slightest resemblance to the Rick of old?

Who knows.

Newsday beat writer Katie Strang has this quote directly from Rick himself in today's on line article.

"You've got to get your feet wet at some point. No better time than the present," DiPietro said. "I feel good, excited and hopefully that adrenaline will carry me through the game."
