Greiss allowed two goals on 10 shots in a relief appearance in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Hurricanes in Game 4. Greiss replaced Robin Lehner in the second period with the Islanders down 3-1, and he was unable to stop the bleeding from there in his only appearance in the playoffs. Greiss is under contract for one more year with the Islanders before he'll become an unrestricted free agent.
Greiss made 29 saves in a 2-1 shootout win over the Panthers on Thursday. The win kept the Islanders in second place in the Metropolitan. Greiss had lost his last two starts against the Habs and Jackets, but came up huge against the kitties. Both Greiss and Robin Lehner have had an outstanding season in a platoon. It will be interesting to see which one the Isles roll in the postseason or if they will continue a platoon.
Greiss will patrol the crease in Thursday's road game against the Panthers. Greiss wasn't great in his last start March 26 against Columbus, surrendering three goals on 32 shots en route to a 4-0 loss. The German netminder will look to bounce back and snap his two-game losing streak in a road matchup with a hot Florida team that's won three straight games.
Greiss stopped 29 of 32 shots in Tuesday's 4-0 loss to the Blue Jackets. The final Columbus goal was scored into an empty net. Greiss had no margin for error with Sergei Bobrovsky on top of his game in the other crease, but he also didn't do much to stem the tide. The Isles continue to lose ground in the Metropolitan Division and now sit tied with the Pens for second, three points back of the Caps. Look for the club to turn back to Robin Lehner for Thursday's contest in Winnipeg.
Greiss will start Tuesday's game in Columbus, Newsday's Andrew Gross reports. Greiss is looking to get back on track after allowing eight goals en route to a 1-2-0 record over his last three starts. He'll take on a desperate Columbus team that's trying to climb into one of the Eastern Conference's two wild-card spots. That desperation hasn't translated into results for the Blue Jackets, who are 1-2-1 in their last four games. The last meeting between these teams came back on March 11, when Greiss posted a 31-save shutout to claim a 2-0 win.
