Kukla's Korner Hockey

from the NY Daily News,
The likelihood of Rick DiPietro playing for the Islanders this weekend appears so slim that it would be “very surprising” to a person who has been in regular contact with the franchise goalie over the last several days.
That’s because DiPietro indeed learned earlier this week that he is suffering from a concussion, two people close to the groggy goalie confirmed yesterday, and not just the “headaches” the Islanders revealed as his lone diagnosis before Tuesday’s night’s 3-2 loss to the Devils.
One published report yesterday indicated that DiPietro was expected to return as early as tomorrow in Buffalo as long as his headaches subsided, a notion one of the goalie’s close friends categorized as “unbelievable” and “ridiculous.”
