The New York Islanders liked what they saw from goaltender Al Montoya over the weekend - so they're sticking with him.Montoya will get the start in net when the Islanders face the Minnesota Wild on Monday.The 26-year-old had a solid season opener, turning aside 27 of 29 shots as the Islanders dropped a 2-0 decision to the Florida Panthers. The decision may raise some eyebrows on Long Island, with the Islanders carrying three netminders for the time being. It was expected that either Rick DiPietro or Evgeni Nabokov would face the Wild.Montoya made an impressive return to the NHL last season, going 9-5-0 with a 2.39 goals-against average in 21 games with New York.
