More DiPi/ Shutout notes

Di Pietro now has 13 shutouts. His shutout in New Jersey was only the 4th of the thirteen on the road.

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:

13-Jan-76VsDetroit10W
21-Dec-84@Hartford10W
11-Feb-86VsVancouver10W
4-Feb-90@Buffalo10W
23-Mar-95VsNew York10W
15-Feb-97VsFlorida10Wot
17-Oct-98@St. Louis10W
27-Oct-98VsLos Angeles10W
15-Dec-98@San Jose10W
12-Feb-02@Philadelphia10Wot
31-Dec-02@Buffalo10Wot
16-Nov-07@New Jersey10W


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.
