  • Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Strong effort in win over teal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/15/17) Greiss set aside 40 of 41 shots in Saturday's 3-1 road win over the Sharks.

    The German backstop played with plenty of poise and determination in this one, and he was quick to shake off the game's first goal -- a power-play tally from Sharks forward Kevin Labanc. New York ranks in the top third of the league in two key offensive categories (2.91 goals per game, 9.64 team shooting percentage) but Greiss's team is ranked 23rd in goals against per contest (2.9) even after his latest performance, so he'll need to bring his A-game consistently to appease fantasy owners.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Patrolling crease against Sharks

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/13/17) Greiss will get the starting nod for Saturday's tilt versus San Jose.

    Coach Doug Weight appears to be utilizing a full goalie split between Greiss and Jaroslav Halak. The 31-year-old Greiss remains winless this season with a 0-1-1 record and a less-than-stellar .885 save percentage. The Sharks have struggled to put pucks into the back of the net (2.33 goals per game), so the netminder could stand a decent chance of getting that first victory of the season.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Bounces back on Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/9/17) Greiss stopped 33 of 35 shots Monday in a 3-2 shootout loss to St. Louis.

    This was a better performance from Greiss, as he stood up to the Blues' high-octane attack outside of two Vladimir Tarasenko goals in the second period. He'll have to keep this up to both hold off Jaroslav Halak and remain a viable option for fantasy owners.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Gets starting nod against Blues

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/9/17) Greiss will defend the cage for Monday's clash versus St. Louis.

    Greiss got rocked in his first outing of the season, as he gave up five goals to the Blue Jackets before getting the hook. Backup Jaroslav Halak was perfect in relief and registered a win Saturday against Buffalo, which could be putting pressure on Greiss to hold on to the starting job. The 31-year-old went a disappointing 1-3-1 in day games last season -- with a 3.01 GAA -- so he could struggle again Monday.

    Islanders' Thomas Greiss: Exits midway through second in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/6/17) Greiss allowed five goals on 26 shots and was pulled in the second period of Friday's 5-0 loss to Columbus.

    With the Islanders projecting to have a near timeshare in nets with Greiss and Jaroslav Halak, this was a discouraging showing from Greiss. Halak reportedly will start the next game against Buffalo, and head coach Doug Weight could quickly favor Halak, with the 32-year-old Czech having a chance to take the lead in the goalie committee early on. Still, Greiss has posted a serviceable .918 save percentage over the past two seasons and can't be written off at this extremely early stage of the fantasy season.
