Rick DiPietro out indefinitely with knee swelling
UPDATE: After working out, Rick DiPietro just talked to reporters about the swelling in his knee. DiPietro sounded upbeat and said his trip to the doctor was "precautionary"
DiPietro was relieved to hear that all tests showed that his left knee is structurally sound and surmised that the issue resulted from kicking it into high gear after 7-8 days off for the Olympic break.
