NY Islanders goalie Rick DiPerto out 6 weeks after goalie fight

What’s worse than having your @$$ kicked in a goalie fight? Just ask NY Islanders goalie Rick DiPerto who will miss the next 4-6 weeks from facial fractures and knee swelling. DiPerto squared off with Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Brent Johnson on Wednesday where he was not only beat up at center ice but in the crease, the Islanders lost to the Pens, 3-0…. bringing their record to a depressing 16-28-7. DiPerto told reporters: “I’m sick of losing, our team’s sick of losing. You never go into a fight expecting you’re going to get smashed in the face that hard, or with these kind of consequences, but it happens and you move on.”

From the looks of the fight, it looks as if Johnson has been watching the Jersey Shore and stealing Ronnie’s moves… “That’s one shot.”
