October 26, 2001 New York Islanders vs Carolina Hurricanes. 3-2 win.

    In 1991 Dusan Salficky crossed the ocean for a very brief stint with the WHL's Tri-City Americans. After playing 2 sub-par games he left North America to go home and play in the Czech Republic. A whole decade would pass until Salficky, after playing brilliantly in the Czech leagues, was drafted by the Islanders and prompted to return to North America. That summer the 29 year old signed a one-year contract with the Islanders.

    On October 11, 2001 The New York Islanders decided to give their starting goalie, Chris Osgood, the night off. Garth Snow was to start the game and Dusan Salficky was recalled to serve as his backup.

    Salficky's second stint with the Islanders lasted a little longer. Later that month Garth Snow had to leave the Isles to be with his sick brother, who was recovering from a severe stroke. Salficky would serve as Osgood's backup for 4 games before Snow returned on November 3rd.

    Salficky was not getting much playing time in Bridgeport with the Islander's AHL team because top prospect Rick Dipietro was eating up all the minutes. Therefore, after playing only 4 games for Bridgeport, the Islanders bough out Salficky's contract and he was back in Europe by December, 2001. His second stint in North America was only slightly longer than his first.

    Salficky was a member of the 2006 Czech Olympic team that won a bronze medal.
