DiPietro to start, Jurcina out vs. Flyers

 After last night's game, Scott Gordon announced that Rick DiPietro would get the start against Philadelphia tonight.

Defenseman Milan Jurcina will not play tonight because of a hamstring injury suffered in last night's game.

No morning skate for the Islanders, who will try to snap a three-game skid against a Flyers team who has given them lots of trouble over the past two years.

Nik Zherdev was a healthy scratch for Philly last night...we'll see if he's back in the lineup tonight.

*Also, injured Islanders forward Kyle Okposo will be on Hockey Night Live tonight at 9:30, joining host Bill Pidto and analaysts Ron Duguay and Ken Daneyko
