Big Test For DiPietro Tonight

from Dan Martin of the NY Post,

Rick DiPietro has made it through months of practice and drills without getting hurt. Tonight, he and the Islanders will see how his body holds up during a game.

It’s been nearly a year since the team’s injury-prone franchise goalie has suited up. Last January, swelling in his surgically repaired knee forced him from the lineup again.

“This is really big for him,” said GM Garth Snow, who will be in Bridgeport tonight to see the Isles’ AHL affiliate Sound Tigers host Springfield with DiPietro in net for the first time since Jan. 2. “It’s certainly been a long road to recovery for him.”
