New York Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro has been scratched from Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. DiPietro was injured during practice when he was hit in the mask by a shot from Brian Rolston on Wednesday. Al Montoya drew the start against the Lightning, with Evgeni Nabokov serving as the backup. DiPietro, who has a history with concussions, was being evaluated Thursday to see if he had suffered another one. He has appeared in just 39 total games the past three seasons.
