Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro is out again, this time for four to six weeks because of broken bones in his face caused by a punch from Pittsburgh counterpart Brent Johnson.
Ok, I admit it. I chuckled a little bit Wednesday night when Rick DiPietro got taken down with one punch by Penguins goalie Brent Johnson. That’s a lie, I chuckled more than a little bit.
Brent Johnson made 20 saves and the Pittsburgh Penguins blanked the New York Islanders for the second time in nine days, winning 3-0 on Wednesday night.
