DiPietro could come back tonight.
After colliding with Steve Begin last tuesday at the Bell centre, Rick Dipietro has practiced with the New-York Islanders and commented on how he felt.
"I had a good practice and that's a good start. But let's see how the morning skate goes tomorrow (today) and then take it from there. We have to make a decision based on what's best for me and the team, long-term."
The New-York Islanders faces the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight in Tampa. Both teams have had a rough week and didn't grab their chance to really position themselves out of danger. Tonight one of those two will keep the playoff pace as the losing one will continue to slide a bit more dangerously.
