  • Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Makes 28 saves in losing effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/28/17) Greiss saved 28 of 30 shots during Monday's loss to Nashville.

    With a playoff berth within reach, Greiss has underwhelmed in March, posting a 5-6-2 record with a .901 save percentage and 3.10 GAA. Inconsistency has been an issue, as the backstop has allowed three goals or more in seven of those 13 outings. His 47 starts are the most of his career by a significant margin (38 last year), so fatigue could be setting in. Greiss has started 35 of the past 40 games, after all. While keeping your expectations in check going forward is advised, Greiss is still worth turning to in favorable matchups.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: In goal Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/27/17) Greiss will defend the cage against the Predators on Monday.

    Greiss has just one win in his last four appearances, a 36-save victory over the Rangers. If the Isles are going to chase down the Bruins for the final wild-card spot, they are going to need the 31-year-old to be on top of his game. If the netminder does struggle, don't be surprised if coach Doug Weight turns to the recently recalled Jaroslav Halak to keep them in the hunt.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: On short end in Saturday's defensive battle

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/17) Greiss allowed just two goals on 18 shots in Saturday's 2-1 loss against the Bruins.

    Neither goaltender faced much rubber in a game resembling a playoff atmosphere. It was one of his best outings in March, as Greiss has yielded four or more goals in five of his 12 appearances in the month.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Preparing for most important start all season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/25/17) Greiss will start in goal Saturday, taking shots from the Bruins at home, Arthur Staple of Newsday reports.

    There's still work to be done, but the Isles suddenly find themselves with a fighting chance at making it to the playoffs; they're currently knotted up with the B's at 82 points apiece in the Eastern Conference standings, making this a critical match for both teams. The problem for Greiss is that his team allows too many shots (32.2 per game, 26th in the league), but that's actually a good thing for fantasy owners when the German plays as well as he did against the Rangers on Wednesday, halting 34 of 36 shots en route to a road win.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Holds off Rangers with 34 saves

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Greiss stopped 34 of 36 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rangers.

    He exited the second period down 2-1, but the German netminder stopped all 11 of the Rangers' shots in the third while his teammates awoke on offense. This puts an end to a five-game skid in which he went just 1-3-1 with a 4.02 GAA and .875 save percentage, but with the Isles reportedly considering calling Jaroslav Halak back from the AHL, Greiss will need to string a few more quality outings together to ensure his job remains secure.

    Greiss allowed four goals on 20 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers.Making the start on the second end of a back-to-back set, Greiss didn't have a strong outing despite facing a relatively light workload.
