Despite rumors to the contrary, I have been told by a reliable source that there is no deal in place that would send Islanders goaltender Dwayne Roloson to Philadelphia (who announced today that G Ray Emery is out for the rest of the season).

Also, Roloson will still be in net tonight as the Islanders take on the Blackhawks at the Coliseum.

Speaking of goaltenders, Rick DiPietro has been placed on IR (knee swelling) retroactive to February 28.

Sean Bergenheim did not skate in pre-game warmups; is a healthy scratch tonight
