Sheet Goalies Scratched

Well, it was likely going to happen, it was just really unknown as to when, but Rick DiPietro has finally made it back in to the Islanders line-up, which creates the huge logjam we were talking about when both Dwayne Roloson and Martin Biron were signed on in the summer. Last night, DiPietro backed up Roloson, which meant that Biron was the odd man out and the Box 31 goaltender was the one in the press box as the healthy scratch.

The rumour mill will churn now on when Biron will be dealt out of town...

Attending to a family matter, Ty Conklin was out of the line-up for the Blues, which meant that Ben Bishop was called up from the minors to back-up Chris Mason on Wednesday night against the Sharks. There is no word as to how long Conklin will be away from the team, but dealing with a family matter, he'll likely get as much time as needed.
