Islanders' Rick DiPietro to Start vs Stars

Well, the Frozen Pill was determined to sneak away to the AAC (the Hangar) and be able to see the Texas debut of the Long Island Ice T, John Tavares during his rookie campaign. And, indeed, it will be happening.

Added bonus applied when RickyD will get his first start in over a year in the NHL. And the Pill will get to see the 15-year contract in all its glory. Simply put - cannotwait.

Of note, the last time the Islanders played in Dallas, they shut out the Stars 3-0 and it was DiPietro with the doughnut. Considering how the Stars fared against the other Manhattanish teams the other nights (shutout by Brodeur and shutdown by Avery), it should be fun to see exactly why the Isles had to follow the Stars back home for more of that special New York kind of treatment.

Then again, I guess the Stars could spoil Rick's Return with a solid victory in front of the home crowd.

But I do have on good sources OGA's Big Tex will also be in attendance this evening. As always, you can look for witty, yet sometimes insightful tweets from both Frozen Pill and Big Tex as OGA IS AT THE GAME.

Tonight. Follow here:
