AND ON THE THIRD DAY, RICK WILL RESTNYI map out plan for rest of DiPietro's week

1:50 pm: In the Islanders’ variation on the Joba Rules, the Rick Rules will call for a day off every third day – so far, just for this week. After taking off today, DiPietro will skate Tuesday and Wednesday and be off on Thursday. He’ll practice on Friday and be one of four goaltenders in the team’s scrimmage at the Coliseum on Saturday. On Sunday, DiPietro will rest. After this week, the goalie, medical staff and management will discuss how his knee is holding up and devise a plan for week two. Comments.
