07:35 AM ET 02.05 | It went from embarrassing to serious very quickly for Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro, who announced Friday he will miss 4-6 weeks because of numerous facial fractures resulting from a punch he took from Penguins goalie Brent Johnson during Wednesday's 3-0 loss in Pittsburgh. On top of that, there's swelling again in DiPietro's surgically repaired left knee, which very much puts in jeopardy the rest of the beleaguered netminder's season.

Hey Otis. What's happened to your Stars? They've only won 2 out of their last 6 games and both of those where against the last place Oilers.

If his jaw was as defined and in tune as those glutes in your avatar, he would be fine right now.
