NYI Fan Central's picture

Newsday: Greg Logan's latest article can only play the speculation game as to when head coach Scott Gordon starts Rick DiPietro with the coaches comments on his possible time table for a start and the goaltenders comments praising Joey MacDonald and his teammates along with what he is doing to get ready.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
No idea, no wasting of my time speculating. I would give DiPietro another five full days of full practices/rest instead of start here against a club MacDonald is just as capable of beating. DiPietro did play and lose in Florida in his only appearance to date in 08-09.

Craig Anderson came in and relieved Vokoun in their 6-2 loss at home in their previous game. New York and Florida split the preseason series with the Isles winning in Summerside.

Sound Recaps the Sound Tigers 4-3 shootout win against the WBS Pens Friday night.

Bridgeport lost a 3-1 lead in this game. (radio link through did work for free for those wondering)

Jesse Joensuu, Tomas Marcinko and Tim Jackman scored for Bridgeport. Blake Comeau had an assist and a fight (several players hit with fighting)here.

Yann Danis was in goal for the Sound Tigers and had nineteen saves, he was perfect after allowing a goal in the first shooout attempt.

Still five round shootout in AHL.

Trevor Smith-no goal, Mike Iggulden, no goal, Kurtis McLean (former WBS Pen) goal, not sure, no goal, Rob Hennigar, no goal, Kurtis McLean goal.

First five shooters can go a second time in AHL shootout overtime.
