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 Tigers.com: 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 AHL.com 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.
