Rick DiPietro has been named as the starting goaltender for the Eastern Conference All-Stars in Atlanta.

Barring any major news regarding the Islanders over the All-Star weekend like Rick DiPietro winning the MVP I will be not be blogging much until Tuesday morning if at all.

Sunday's Newsday will have a feature on Rick DiPietro's first all-star game which the news feeders will have along with Saturday's Sound Tiger game.

Versus has the skills competition on Saturday night with the game Sunday at 6pm.

The feeders will have the Newsday articles and possible blogs/all-star game features and the Isles/Sound Tigers website have their updates linked to the blog so no one will miss updates or video.

NHL.com: Has the format for the entire weekend with several features & Dan Rosen has an article on the changes to the skills competition.

Islanders website: Islanders VP of Media Relations Chris Botta announced he will be in Atlanta and in his Point Blank Blog here will include updates on Rico's weekend, with analysis, rumors, interviews.

Mr Botta's blog is also featured on the sidebar at New York Islander Fan Central.
