Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Numbers heading in wrong direction
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss has a 16-9-4 record along with a 2.74 GAA and .913 save percentage this season.

Those are solid numbers for a backup goaltender but far from the 2.28 GAA and .927 save percentage that Greiss posted last year. Greiss will more likely than not find himself playing for a new team next season as Semyon Varlamov is signed with the Isles for three more years and Ilya Sorokin is finally expected to make his way to North America from the KHL.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Falls to Canes in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss stopped 25 shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Hurricanes.

He played well, but Greiss still wound up extending his winless streak to four games. The 34-year-old has gotten the hook in two of those four starts, and on the season he now carries a 2.74 GAA and .913 save percentage.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Chance at redemption Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss will start Saturday's matinee against the Hurricanes, Brian Compton of NHL.com reports.

Greiss will be tasked with trying to turn things around in a hugely important game for the Islanders, who now lead the Hurricanes by just three points for the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, with the Rangers also lurking two points back of the Islanders. The whole Islanders team has struggled recently, but Greiss has been particularly bad, allowing nine goals on just 52 shots in his last three appearances (.827 save percentage). On the bright side for Greiss, the Hurricanes come in having dropped four in a row themselves.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Gets quick hook Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss allowed three goals on 12 shots before being replaced by Semyon Varlamov to begin the second period of Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Canadiens.

The Habs beat Greiss three times in a little over five minutes late in the first frame, forcing the 34-year-old from the game. It's the second time in his last three starts he's gotten a quick hook, further entrenching Varlamov in the No. 1 job. On the season, Greiss now carries a 2.74 GAA and .914 save percentage.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Facing Canadiens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, which suggests he'll get the start in goal in Tuesday's home matchup with Montreal, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Greiss was pretty solid in his last start Thursday against St. Louis, stopping 29 of 32 shots, but he ultimately suffered his 11th loss of the season due to insufficient goal support. The 34-year-old German will try to get back in the win column in a home matchup with a Canadiens club that's averaging 3.23 goals per game on the road this campaign, fifth in the NHL.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Can't preserve two-goal lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss made 29 saves Thursday in a 3-2 overtime loss to St. Louis.

Greiss was on the verge of victory when St. Louis' Vince Dunn tied the game with 1:44 remaining to send things into overtime. Fellow Blues defenseman Colton Parayko ended the game with a wraparound tally in the extra session, a goal Griess certainly wants back. The 34-year-old netminder has dropped back-to-back starts to fall to 16-8-3 on the season. He owns a respectable 2.65 GAA and .916 save percentage.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Starting in St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss will guard the road goal during Thursday's matchup with St. Louis, Lou Korac of NHL.com reports.

Greiss hasn't played since Feb. 13 against the Predators, and he was awful in that contest, surrendering three goals on just eight shots before being replaced by Semyon Varlamov in the first period of the eventual 5-0 defeat. The 34-year-old German will attempt to shake off the rust and pick up his 17th win of the campaign in a brutal road matchup with a sizzling-hot Blues team that's won five straight games.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Night in Nashville ends early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss got pulled from Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Predators after allowing three goals on eight shots.

Greiss lasted all of 13 minutes, posting a .625 save percentage before being replaced by Semyon Varlamov. The loss moves Greiss's season record to 16-8-2. With three games remaining on the team's road trip, it's likely Greiss will get a chance to redeem himself in the near future.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Slated to start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss was the first goalie off the ice Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he will guard the crease on the road versus Nashville.

Greiss continues to help his team rack up points in the standings, as he is undefeated in regulation in his last eight appearances. Over this stretch, the netminder has gone 5-0-2 with a 2.47 GAA and .920 save percentage. As long as the German maintains his peak form, he should be in line for a heavier share of the workload over Semyon Varlamov.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Wins second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss made 26 saves in a 5-3 win over Washington on Monday.

New York blitzed the Capitals early and often, building a 5-1 lead for Greiss by the game's midway point. That was more than enough for Greiss to secure his second straight victory and improve to 16-7-2 on the season. He'll likely take a seat in favor of Semyon Varlamonv on Tuesday against Philadelphia, but Greiss's solid 2.55 GAA and .920 save percentage ensure he'll remain a regular part of the Islanders' goaltending rotation.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Pegged for divisional clash
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss will take on the Capitals in Monday's road game, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Greiss will get the nod in the first half of back-to-back games, while it's tough to get a grip on the Islanders' goaltending rotation. The 34-year-old Greiss has been solid in seven 2020 appearances, as he's posted a 4-0-2 record with a .923 save percentage. Facing the Capitals on the road is no small task, as they rank tied for sixth with 3.48 goals per home game.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Picks up 15th win of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss stopped 22 of 25 shots in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Kings.

Greiss shut out the Kings over the final 32:51 while the Islanders scored three unanswered goals in the third period to complete the comeback. He now owns a 15-7-2 record this season. Next up are the Lightning and Greiss already owns a win over Tampa Bay this year. The team has not announced its starter for Saturday's game.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: First goalie off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss was the first goalie off the ice Thursday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports, indicating he will get the starting nod against Los Angeles.

Greiss will be making his fourth appearance in the Isles' last five contests, having posted a 1-0-2 record and .929 save percentage in his previous three outings. The German netminder hasn't lost in regulation since Dec. 27 versus the Blackhawks, a run of six games in which he went 3-0-2. If Greiss remains on top of his game, coach Barry Trotz could continue giving him more opportunities over Semyon Varlamov.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Falls to Canucks in OT
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss stopped 20 shots in Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Canucks.

It took a Brock Nelson goal inside the final minute with Greiss on the bench just to get the game to OT, and the netminder then promptly coughed up a goal to Quinn Hughes 42 seconds into extra time. Despite the stumble, Greiss still hasn't lost in regulation since Dec. 27, going 3-0-2 over his last five starts. On the season, he carries a 2.50 GAA and .922 save percentage.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Garners first start after break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss will tend the home twine Saturday versus the Canucks, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Greiss was spectacular before the break, making at least 30 saves in three straight games and posting a 2-0-1 record and .955 save percentage in that stretch. He'll get the nod instead of Semyon Varlamov as a result. Vancouver has been a bit inconsistent on the road this year, ranking 14th with 2.92 goals per game.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Dazzles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss made 40 saves while allowing two goals in a 4-2 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday.

The Rangers outshot the Islanders 42-18, but thanks to Greiss, the Islanders won rather handily. The Islanders led 4-0 until the Rangers scored two late third-period goals. Greiss heads into the All-Star break with similar numbers to last season, when he posted a .927 save percentage and 2.28 GAA, both of which were career bests. He is 14-7-1 with a 2.43 GAA and .925 save percentage in 24 games this season.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Gets starting nod
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

According to Arthur Staple of The Athletic, Greiss was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll get the start in goal on the road against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Greiss was razor sharp in his last start Sunday against the Hurricanes, turning aside 31 of 32 shots, but he ultimately suffered his eighth loss of the season due to a lack of goal support from his teammates. The 33-year-old netminder will attempt to get back in the win column in a road matchup with a Rangers team that's averaging 3.54 goals per game at home this year, fifth in the NHL.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Handed shootout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss stopped 31 of 32 shots Sunday in a 2-1 shootout loss to Carolina.

Greiss allowed an Andrei Svechnikov goal six minutes into the game and then slammed the door for the duration of regulation time. Unfortunately, the offensive support he received in Tuesday's 8-2 win over Detroit was nowhere to be found Sunday. Greiss is 13-7-1 with a 2.45 GAA and .923 save percentage in his 23 appearances.

January 19, 2020 04:36 PM
Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Tending twine Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss is the confirmed starter for Sunday's road game versus the Hurricanes, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

Greiss will make his third start in 12 games, as Semyon Varlamov has taken over as the No. 1. However, Gross relayed that coach Barry Trotz may revert to a timeshare following the All-Star break. Greiss has been decent on the road this year with a .915 save percentage and 5-5-0 record, and he'll draw a Hurricanes team that has lost three straight while totaling three goals.

Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Greiss is expected to lineup between the pipes as the Islanders take on the Hurricanes on Sunday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

The start will only be the second for Greiss in the past 12 games as Semyon Varlamov has been given an extended run as the starter. Coach Barry Trotz indicated Sunday however that following the All-Star break he is likely to go back to a rotation between Varlamov and Greiss. The reason for this is likely because Varlamov has had a couple of rough starts over the past week, giving up six goals each to the Rangers and Capitals. In any case, the Islanders rely on strong play from the goaltenders as scoring has been a consistent problem for the team all season long.
