DiPietro "needs a few more games", loses in German debut

Rick DiPietro made his debut in Germany on Sunday, and came out on the losing end of a 4-1 score (with the final tally being an EN goal).

As for Rick's play,  I'll leave it again to google translate:

<<Matt D'Agostini showed his class throughout the game. With goalkeeper Rick DiPietro could see that he still needs a bit of time getting used to. Axel Kammerer was the goalkeeper of the NY Islanders in protection "for him
as a goalkeeper is the change more difficult, he needs a few more

This can be deduced then, the first two goals, which certainly belong to the category "unfortunate". First brought Landshut Cannibals in his scorer Abstreiter 15.Minute with 0:1
in front and just before the third end Martin Davidek flicked the puck
from the left band towards goal, the puck slid into the net past
DiPietros saver.>>

DiPietro is playing on a seemingly weak team; they've now lost 8 of 9 games so far this season.
