Rick DiPietro Cleared to Practice with Islanders

From TSN,

The New York Islanders’ playoff chances improved late Thursday night, as the team announced that goaltender Rick DiPietro has been cleared to play and will take part in a full practice on Friday.
DiPietro, recovering from two concussions, did not dress in Thursday’s 4-1 loss against the Buffalo Sabres and watched the game from a luxury box at HSBC Arena.
Wade Dubielewicz started Game 1 of the best-of-seven series and stopped 31 of 35 Buffalo shots.
DiPietro sustained two concussions 12 days apart last month. He skated on his own Tuesday, but hasn’t practiced with the team since a loss to the New York Rangers on March 25. He missed the final seven games of the regular season.
