DiPietro, Islanders looking to bounce back vs. Lightning

Mar 11, 2008 - 1:10 PM NY Islanders (32-31-7) at Tampa Bay (26-35-8) 7:30 pm EDT

TAMPA, Florida (Ticker) - The New York Islanders are hoping goalie Rick DiPietro can bounce back and help them return to their winning ways.

DiPietro and the Islanders look to snap a two-game losing streak when they visit the lowly Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old DiPietro made 23 saves on Saturday, his first game back after missing the previous three due to the death of his grandmother. However, it wasn't enough as the Islanders suffered a 4-1 setback to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Despite dropping six of its last eight games following a six-game win streak, New York has won each of the first three meetings this campaign against the Lightning and are looking to sweep the season series for the first time since 2001-02.

DiPietro has logged two of his three shutouts this season against Tampa Bay, including a 1-0 victory the last time the teams met on February 21.

The Lightning, who own the worst record in the Eastern Conference, fell to 0-4-1 over their last five games on Sunday, enduring a 5-3 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.
