DP GETS FIRST OLYMPIC WIN
Yash Records an Assist on Thursday

Islanders and United States goaltender Rick DiPietro got his first Olympic win in his first Olympic start as the USA defeated Kazakhstan 4-1 on Thursday. DiPietro made 11 saves on just 12 shots, while Jason Blake and Mark Parrish were scoreless. The only thing that stood in between DP and the shutout was a third period power play goal by Kazakhstan.
 
Earlier in the day, Islanders captain Alexei Yashin recorded his first point of the Olympics as he notched an assist in Russia's 5-0 victory over Sweden. In other action, Miroslav Satan was scoreless in the Slovakian's 6-3 victory over Latvia.
 
After two days, the United States sits in second place in Group B with a 1-0-1 record and three points. The American's next game is on Saturday when they faceoff against Satan and Slovakians.
