So Gordon decided to sit franchise goaltender Rick DiPietro for a second straight night, though he claimed that DiPietro and his surgically repaired left knee were “capable of playing.”
“As I said [Friday], we could play him these first three games and then go to Florida and he could be out a month,” the coach said. “If we’re 0-3 after these three games and he’s better prepared to play in Florida, then he’s better off.”
It’s hard to see the logic in that, especially with the sight of DiPietro sitting in full uniform as the backup.
