Isles' DiPietro misses home opener with groin injury

UNIONDALE, N.Y. -- New York Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro
missed the team's home opener against Boston on Saturday night
because of a groin injury.

It was unclear when DiPietro hurt himself, but his last action
was Tuesday night in Los Angeles. Backup Mike Dunham played the
next night in Anaheim, and earned New York's first win of the
season. DiPietro lost the first three games of the season.

DiPietro signed a 15-year, $67.5 million dollar contract during
the offseason. New York recalled goalie Wade Dubielewicz from
Bridgeport to back up Dunham.
