From The NY Times

As Penguins forward Matt Cooke skated by his crease, DiPietro shoved him in the chest, knocking the noted Penguins antagonist down. A few scrums ensued and DiPietro met his netminding counterpart, Brent Johnson, at the Islanders’ blue line. Both shed their blockers and gloves.

Johnson had never fought in the N.H.L. before, but he is 6-foot-3. DiPietro, smaller by at least two inches, once got the better of former Rangers goalie prospect Al Montoya in a preseason game. Flashing a left hook that seemed to stun even his own teammates, Johnson dropped DiPietro with the one and only punch of the fight.
