Neither Thomas Greiss nor Jean-Francois Berube could provide effective goaltending as the Islanders lost 7-0 to the Blue Jackets Saturday.
Greiss got the game off to a rocky start by giving up three in the first period on only 17 shots. It did not get any better with Berube minding the crease. He gave up two goals in the second and another pair in the third. With three wins in his last four starts and save percentages greater than .925, much more was expected of Greiss. Feb 25 - 7:29 PM

The Islanders' top netminder has been pretty up-and-down this month. Through six games he has posted a 3-3 record with an .875 save percentage and 22 goals against. To wit, he's allowed at least three goals in four of his six games. It may pay to be cautious with him today.
