Thomas Greiss stopped 15 of 16 shots in relief of Jaroslav Halak on Friday.

Halak turned away just eight of 11 shots during his 20 minutes of work, prompting Coach Capuano to make the change.
Nov 20 - 9:20 PM

Thomas Greiss has not allowed more than two goals in each of his last three games.

Greiss has been great for the Islanders this season as he is 5-1-2 this season with a 2.22 GAA and a .930 save percentage. The Islanders have been getting excellent goalkeeping this season and Greiss has certainly contributed to that. He should be started in pools with daily transactions when he is slated to start.
Nov 15 - 7:27 AM

Thomas Greiss made 24 saves in Friday's impressive 4-1 win over the Ducks.

Greiss was simply sensational, only being beaten after a lost mad scramble just off his crease while down two men. Can't ask for much more than that from your backup netminder. The win improves his record to 5-1-2 with 18 goals against.
Nov 14 - 12:53 AM

Thomas Greiss will face the Kings on Friday night.

Through six starts and seven games so far this season, Greiss owns a 4-2-1 record with 17 goals against and a .927 save percentage. He's alternated two and three goal efforts over his last six games, suggesting he's in for a twoey tonight.
Nov 13 - 8:14 PM

Thomas Greiss made 34 saves on 36 shots in the Islanders' 4-2 win over his former team in San Jose on Tuesday.

It had to feel good for Greiss who played his first 44 games in a Sharks' uniform. The Islanders' backup had lost two straight starts going into this one so it's a nice sight for owners looking for some spot starts out of him. The 29 year-old is 4-1-2 with a 2.39 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage in seven starts this season. He looks to be a safe start with Halak on the shelf.

Thomas Greiss will start Tuesday's game at San Jose.

He has dropped his last two outings (0-1-1) after winning three straight. Greiss owns a .924 save percentage and a 2.45 goals-against average in six games this season.
Nov 10 - 4:29 PM

Thomas Greiss is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Montreal Canadiens.

The 29-year-old has started six games for the Islanders, but they opted to use JF Berube as the backup goaltender in his home province. Taylor Beck and Steve Bernier will also be scratched.
Nov 5 - 7:45 PM

Thomas Greiss stopped 20 of 22 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Sabres on Sunday.

Greiss was solid but it wasn't enough on Sunday. He is now 3-1-2 to start the year and doesn't hold much fantasy value as long as Jaroslav Halak is healthy.
Nov 1 - 10:08 PM

Thomas Greiss will get the start in Sunday's game against Buffalo.

The 29-year-old has a 3-0-2 record with a 2.53 goals-against-average and a .926 save percentage this season.
Nov 1 - 5:45 PM

Thomas Greiss allowed three goals on 29 shots on Thursday night as the Hurricanes edged the Islanders 3-2 in overtime.

Greiss is still undefeated in regulation this season, with a 3-0-2 record so far and a .926 save percentage and 2.53 goals against average. In his five starts this season, Greiss has allowed either two or three goals against.
Oct 29 - 10:36 PM

Thomas Greiss will get the net Thursday night against the Hurricanes.

Usual starter Jaroslav Halak is out sick. A closer look at Greiss' stats show he's been a fairly competent goalie for the Islanders through four starts. He's 3-0-1 with just 10 goals against on 146 combined shots. Considering it's the Hurricanes and that Greiss is still sporting a .923 save percentage on even strength shots, he may be a nice sneaky play.
Oct 29 - 6:17 PM

Thomas Greiss blocked 38 shots in the Islanders’ 3-2 overtime win against the Blues on Saturday night.

A stellar performance for the back-up netminder. This is why the Islanders went out and signed him; Greiss is showing last season’s .908 SV% was the outlier. He is 3-0-1 with a 2.44 GAA and .932 SV%. Jaroslav Halak is far from an elite goalie, so Greiss could get more than his fair share of looks moving forward.
