Thomas Greiss dominated the San Jose Sharks, stopping 40 of 41 shots in a 3-1 win.

Pavelski and Burns were left frustrated all night by Greiss continuously smothering their combined 11 shots on goal. Greiss tends to run hot and cold and our only advice is to ride the German netminder while he's hot. The win marks his first of the season, improving his record to 1-1-1 on the year with a 3.07 goals against average and a .922 save percentage.

Thomas Greiss made 33 stops in a 3-2 shootout loss to St. Louis on Monday afternoon.

Thomas Greiss surrendered five goals on 26 shots in a 5-0 loss to Columbus on Friday night.

Thomas Greiss will get the nod on Friday.

Jaroslav Halak will then play between the pipes Saturday night. Greiss might be working in the Islanders' opener, but New York is entering the season without either goaltender being the clear number one.

Thomas Greiss turned in a strong 31-save performance Sunday in a 5-2 victory over Philadelphia in preseason action.

Greiss is looking to repeat the strong start he had last year before his numbers dipped in the second half. A 2.69 goals-against average and .913 save percentage won't get him the majority of starts again this year with Jaroslav Halak competing for the crease.

It's got to be a thrill for him after his 2016-17 run ended with the Islanders falling just short of the playoffs. Greiss had a 2.69 GAA and .913 save percentage in 51 regular season games in 2016-17. This was the first game of the 2017 Worlds for Germany and America.
