08:29 AM ET 11.06 | In the case of Rick DiPietro, who has played a mere 47 games over the past four seasons, reports of another injury are bound to spread quickly. On Monday, Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro denied a report from a German newspaper that he has a groin injury telling The Post it was "not true at all." "I'm feeling good," DiPietro wrote in a text message, "and I'm looking forward to the next game." ... On Friday, after Riessersee beat Beilbronner Falken, 4-3, it was reported in the Munchner Merkur newspaper (via Google translate) that DiPietro was suffering from a groin strain. DiPietro did not play in that game, and according to Riessersee's website, has played in one game and given up three goals. "I'm great," DiPietro responded.

Candidate Mayo's strutting in the dirt;
Look at his face, he's starting to hurt;
Here he is, thinking he's a great big star;
But before too long he's gonna D.O.R.;
Seen guys like you a hundred times;
I'm telling you, Mayo, I'm one of a kind;
Gonna give you more than you can take;
I'm gonna watch you crumble and watch you break!
