Greiss saved 36 of 39 shots during Saturday's 4-3 overtime win against Detroit. Greiss started three of the final four games for the Islanders, and he allowed 11 total goals with an .895 save percentage. He's under contract through the 2019-20 campaign at $3,333,333 per season, so barring a major shakeup, he should see plenty of action again next year. While the German has been a serviceable fantasy asset in the past, and even for stretches this season, a lot would probably need to go Greiss' way for him to be anything other than a matchup-based option in 2018-19.
Greiss will guard the goal in Saturday's season finale against the Red Wings in Detroit. Greiss will look to close out the season on a high note Saturday after allowing four goals in each of his last two starts. The veteran netminder remains under contract for two more seasons, so he should resume his role for the club next season after attempting to take down a Red Wings club that has averaged just 2.61 goals per game in the second half.
Greiss saved 27 of 34 shots during Tuesday's 5-4 win over Philadelphia. The German has now allowed four goals in consecutive games with an .879 save percentage. He's posted a respectable 12-8-2 record for the year, but his ratios are cripplers (.890 save percentage and 3.86 GAA). The Islanders host the Rangers on Thursday and visit the Red Wings on Saturday, and even with both teams also eliminated from the playoffs, Greiss should probably be viewed as a risky start against both.
Greiss will guard the home goal Tuesday against the Flyers, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports. Greiss showed some rust Saturday in his first game back from a long layoff due to a lower-body injury, allowing four goals on 35 shots to take a loss against the Devils. The defeat dropped his record to just 11-8-2 on the season and his 3.85 GAA and .891 save percentage aren't exactly conducive to fantasy success either. Another rough night may await against a Flyers club scoring exactly three goals per game on the road this season.
Greiss made 31 saves Saturday in a 4-3 loss to New Jersey. Greiss looked sharp despite it being his first game back in six weeks. He's now 11-8-2.
