05:24 AM ET 10.28 | Rick DiPietro missed another game last night after being examined by a doctor during the day. He was listed as being "day-to-day" with "a lower body injury" that he suffered on Saturday night. The injury, whatever it was, is "unrelated to his previous injuries." That's all the news the Islanders saw fit to give out last night regarding their franchise goaltender, who has had two hip surgeries, missed the first four games of the season because he had not fully recovered from offseason knee surgery, but was apparently healthy enough to serve as backup. It's been a strange beginning to the season, as the team has used the NHL's new injury policy to keep injury situations murky. More worrying is that the brittle DiPietro - who didn't dress for last night's 4-2 loss to the Rangers, the team's fourth straight defeat - is showing no signs of becoming more durable.
