Thomas Greiss did his best to prevent it, but the Coyotes dropped a 2-0 decision to the Predators on Thursday night.

Thomas Greiss allowed four goals on 30 shots in Phoenix's 4-3 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.

Greiss has not provided adequate relief for the Coyotes since Mike Smith went down, owning a 2-2-4 record and a five game losing skid since taking over the crease. The 28-year-old's strong start keeps his line looking good at a 9-7-5 record with a .920 save percentage and 2.36 goals against average. But Phoenix has lost control of its own playoff destiny with Greiss in goal.

Thomas Greiss still is looking to be a starting goaltender in the NHL.

Greiss is now getting every opportunity to show what he can do as Mike Smith is out of action as the Coyotes head down the stretch. Greiss is 2-2-2 since taking over but he has played very well in the Coyotes cage. Greiss inked a one-year contract with Phoenix in the off-season and is slated to become a UFA at the end of the season. Smith is unlikely to return before the end of the regular season and the Coyotes have faith that Greiss can continue to do the job.

His record on the season is now 9-5-2 while his GAA is 2.31 and his save percentage is .924. He's a very worthy fantasy pickup if you're in need of goaltending.
Mar 27 - 10:15 PM

Thomas Greiss was approached about a contract extension during the Olympic break, but it doesn't look like he is ready to commit to the Coyotes right now.

Greiss, an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, is concerned about the lack of playing time behind Mike Smith, as he had started 11 times before Smith got hurt during Monday's game. "We'd like Thomas back and we like how he's played for us, but if we can't get him signed, we'll have to go get someone else," general manager Don Maloney said.
Mar 26 - 8:11 PM

Greiss improves to 8-5-2 this season with a .924 save percentage and 2.35 save percentage. The win snaps a three game losing personal losing streak for Greiss, and gives the Coyotes confidence that if Smith is not ready to go Thursday versus New Jersey, Greiss is capable of filling in once again.

If Smith's injury is determined to be serious, and it very well might be, Greiss is the favorite for playing time in the Phoenix goal.
Mar 24 - 10:28 PM
