DiPietro Remains Confident

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

Neither Rick DiPietro nor anyone else with the Islanders is ready to say that DiPietro has played his last game of the season, but with the goalie still not permitted on the ice because of swelling in his surgically repaired right knee, the odds of him suiting up by April 11 seem remote.

But even if he winds up playing just eight games this year, DiPietro considers it a success.

“This isn’t a wasted year,’’ DiPietro said while the rest of the Isles prepared to play the Rangers at the Garden tonight. “I proved I could come back from a major surgery and play in the NHL and win hockey games. That was the main focus of this year. Does it [stink] that I haven’t been able to go out and play every single game, every single night, when we’re in the middle of the playoff [run]? Yeah.”

DiPietro has not played since Feb. 6 and he has been sidelined since first experiencing the swelling on March 1 after returning from the Olympic break.

Though questions of his durability persist—and no doubt will continue to do so into next year—DiPietro said he remains confident.

Rangers/Islanders Game In 3D

via Richard Sandomir of the New York Times,

MSG Network will show next Wednesday’s Islanders-Rangers game in 3D, the first time a hockey game has been carried in the technology, the network said. It will be available to Cablevision subscribers and offered to other providers.

The game will also be shown on a screen at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.

For the game, five 3D cameras will be set up on platforms lower down in the arena than for high-definition broadcasts. “You produce 3D games differently,” said Mike Bair, the president of MSG Media. “And you have to hold shots longer and not cut as quickly.” Kenny Albert and Dave Maloney, the Rangers’ radio team, will shift to the 3D broadcast.

Nassau Coliseum Crumbling

via Dan Martin of the NY Post,

People have been saying the Nassau Coliseum has been falling apart for years. Now it is—literally.

Strong winds brought down two pieces of the aluminum façade that goes around the entire building at approximately 5:30 yesterday—about 90 minutes before the Islanders hosted the Devils—near the box office. The larger piece was 10 feet by 18 feet.

No one was injured and the box office entrance was closed, because other pieces also appeared close to falling.

No Interview For You

from Chris Botta of NYI Point Blank,

A grand total of three reporters were at the Coliseum for the trade deadline today: me, Katie Strang of Newsday and Dan Martin of the Post. An hour after the deadline had passed with no Islanders moves, only Katie and Dan were invited together to speak with Garth Snow in his office while I was kept in a holding cell….

All I miss out on is presenting his quotes straight to you. Judging by what I read today, again I did not miss much.

There are plenty of other places to go for information, and plenty of stories, insights and actual facts (!) still to share. In fact, there is so much more to this story - but we’ll pour the whine a little at at time.

Garth and I used to be pretty good friends. I believe he would tell you I was fairly helpful to him for a few years in his transition from goaltender to GM.

DiPietro’s Knee Issue Not Serious

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

Want to sum up the last few years for Rick DiPietro and the Islanders?

The goalie entered the NHL’s two-week Olympic break with his surgically repaired knee in good shape and not having missed a practice due to injury since returning on Jan. 6. And now, on the eve of the team’s return to the ice tonight against Chicago at the Coliseum, he’s out indefinitely with swelling in the knee.

Still, the 28-year-old was not terribly discouraged by the news, saying tests showed yesterday that everything is fine structurally with the knee.

“It’s precautionary,” DiPietro said after returning to the team’s practice facility after practice, where he worked out. “After seven or eight days off, to kick it back into full gear might have irritated it a little bit. There’s nothing major to report, just the stuff that goes along with the territory of coming back from a serious injury.”
