DiPietro’s appearance at practice lifts Islanders

Via: National Post

‘”I think it gives them a big lift,” Sabres head coach Lindy Ruff said. “And this is no criticism of [Wade] Dubielewicz. He’s played very well, and I thought he played very well last night. But [DiPietro] is their star goaltender. He is a guy who ran a real hot streak during the regular season. I think it’s a big addition, a big lift for the team. It fills the hope tank a little bit.”‘
