It's the first time that DiPietro has won a 1-0 game and only the 12th 1-0 win in Islander regular season history:
Tommy Salo had all four of the 1-0 wins in 1997 and 1998; no other Isle goalie has more than one. Jason Blake had the OT goal in the most recent 1-0 win, which made a winner out of Chris Osgood.
DiPietro now has 99 career wins, and the Isles as a team have 499 road wins in their history, meaning Monday at MSG could be a multiple milestone game.
Only three goalies have won 100 games for the Islanders (Smith 304, Resch 157, Hrudey 106) -- Hrudey won his 100th game in January 1989.
