Newsday: Greg Logan's latest article can only play the speculation game as to when head coach Scott Gordon starts Rick DiPietro with the coaches comments on his possible timetable for a start, the goaltenders comments praising Joey MacDonald and his teammates along with what he is doing to get ready.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
No idea, not worth speculating. I would give DiPietro another five full days of full practices/rest instead of a start here against a club MacDonald is just as capable of beating. DiPietro did play and lose vs Florida in his only appearance to date in 08-09.

Craig Anderson came in and relieved Vokoun in a 6-2 loss at home in Florida's previous game. New York and Panthers split the preseason series with the Isles winning in Summerside.

First five shooters can go a second time in AHL shootout if tied after five attempts
e which is all Bridgeport needed with McLean scoring two goals on two attempts against his former club.
