  • Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Concedes four in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) Greiss allowed four goals on 25 shots in Sunday's Game 5 loss to the Lightning.

    Greiss wasn't great in this one, but he received nothing by way of offensive support, so it's hard to pin all of the blame on the netminder. Following a terrific first round, Greiss struggled a bit with the high-powered Tampa offense, allowing 17 goals in the five game series. The 30-year-old played admirably while Jaroslav Halak nursed a groin injury, so there remains some uncertainty as to which way to club will go to open up next season.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Will start in net Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) Greiss will get the start in net for Sunday's Game 5 against the Lightning.

    Greiss had a solid showing in Game 4 and held a shutout until late in the third period, but he failed to receive any offensive support and ended up taking an overtime loss. With the Islanders down 3-1 and on the brink of elimination, Greiss will need to step it up Sunday. In four games against the Lightning this series, Greiss has struggled to a 3.28 GAA and a .899 save percentage.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Drops third straight to Lightning on Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/16) Greiss allowed two goals on 22 shots Friday in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Lightning in Game 4.

    After giving up 11 goals over the first three games of the series, Greiss tightened things up in this one, pitching a shutout until 7:49 of the third when Nikita Kucherov potted his league-leading eighth goal of the postseason. He's been mostly excellent in 10 games in the playoffs with a 2.32 GAA and a .928 save percentage, but the Bolts have been roughing him up and things aren't looking good heading back to Florida down 3-1. That said, the Isles are a scrappy bunch, so look for Greiss, John Tavares, Kyle Okposo and Co. to put up quite the fight when Game 5 commences Sunday afternoon.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: In goal for Game 4

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/6/16) Greiss will tend the twine in Game 4 against the Lightning on Friday.

    Greiss will look to overcome his disastrous Game 3 in which he allowed five pucks to find the back of the net. It has been a rough second round for the netminder who has been peppered with shots, 107 in three outings, but has logged a paltry .897 save percentage. While he did start the postseason strong, the 30-year-old has become one of the riskier fantasy options between the pipes for owners.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Allows five goals in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/3/16) Greiss allowed five goals on 41 shots in Tuesday's Game 3 5-4 overtime loss to the Lightning.

    The 30-year-old netminder has now dropped back-to-back games after winning three straight starts this postseason. Tuesday's defeat was a heartbreaking one, as he was in line for the win before getting beat by Nikita Kucherov at 19:21 of the third period. The five goals allowed were his highest since allowing six to Tampa Bay on March 25. Still, Greiss has a respectable 2.34 GAA this postseason.
