DiPietro: Kozlov's Shot "Dented" My Glove.
I was just reading Newsday's Caps-Isles gamer online. Here are a couple of things I found interesting:
Despite playing well above expectations last season, Poti and Kozlov were allowed to walk July 1, though both expressed a strong desire to remain on the Island. Poti was offered three years for $10 million but got a four-year deal worth $14 million from the Caps. Kozlov said he was offered more than $1 million per season by the Isles, but it didn't come close to the two-year deal he signed for $5 million.
Isles goaltender Rick DiPietro might be the NHL's best with the glove, but Kozlov's shot practically tore the leather off DiPietro's right hand and left him looking at his glove as if it had a hole in it. "I thought I had the puck in my glove," DiPietro said. "There was a spot in the glove that was dented. It definitely hit it, but Kozy's got a hard shot."

Note:As I mentioned in a previous entry, the Caps are off today. They'll be back on the ice tomorrow at 10:30.
