Thomas Greiss made 36 saves Saturday night, but unfortunately it was the seven goals he let get past him that made the difference in a 7-4 loss to Carolina.

With a season average of .927 and seven consecutive games north of the .900 mark, players expected much more from Greiss. His goals against average of 7.79 Saturday night was the second worst outing of the season and astronomically worse than his season mark of 2.28.
Jan 14 - 10:32 PM

John Tavares scored the first and final goals for the Islanders, but it was not enough as they lost a 7-4 contest to the Hurricanes.

Tavares got the Islanders on the board first with a goal at the 4:16 mark of the first. He scored again at the 1:08 mark of the third to tie the game at 4-4, but three unanswered points by the Canes deflated the Islanders. This is the second consecutive night Tavares scored more than one goal in a game with Friday night’s hat trick against the Panthers.
Jan 14 - 9:49 PM

The Islander have lost Johnny Boychuk to an upper body injury for Saturday's match with Carolina.

Through 39 games this season the veteran defender has posted five goals and 14 points along with 86 blocks and hits. He is considered day-to-day for now.
Jan 14 - 6:54 PM

It'll be Thomas Greiss in net for the Islanders against Carolina on Saturday.

It's been seven games since Greiss has been beaten more than twice in a game. He's gone 4-1-2 with a total of 12 goals against to go along with a .948 save percentage in that span.
Jan 14 - 5:42 PM

Shane Prince and Brian Gionta will be scratched against the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Gionta has yet to suit up for the Islanders this season. Prince meanwhile has 13 points along with 27 hits in 32 games. All of which is to say there isn't much fantasy value here.
Jan 14 - 2:24 PM

Jean-Francois Berube could get the start Saturday night against the Hurricanes.

Thomas Greiss started Friday night against the Panthers and my need a breather. If Berube does get the call, it will be his first game action since December 30th.
Jan 14 - 10:13 AM

Thomas Greiss stopped 27 of 29 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

The win puts an end to Greiss' three-game losing streak (0-1-2). Despite the fact that he wasn't won many games in the last few weeks, Greiss has still given up two goals or less in seven consecutive outings. He has a 10-6-2 record with a 2.28 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage in 2016-17.
Jan 13 - 11:30 PM

John Tavares scored a hat trick in Friday's 5-2 win over the Florida Panthers.

Tavares' goals gave the Islanders 2-0, 4-2 and 5-2 leads. The Islanders' captain finished the night with a plus-3 rating and six shots on goal, while winning 75 percent of his face-offs. Tavares' fantasy owners will welcome tonight's production, as he had found the back of the net just two times in his previous 12 games. Tavares has 14 goals and 30 points in 40 games this season. Hopefully this is the turning point of his year.
Jan 13 - 11:23 PM

Shane Prince, Brian Gionta and Scott Mayfield will be scratche against the Panthers on Friday night.

Prince has not quite followed up his sterling partial season with the Islanders from last season as hoped. He has 13 points along with 27 hits in 32 games this season. While Mayfield has posted three points and 17 PIMs in just three games.
Jan 13 - 6:37 PM

Anthony Beauvillier will return to the Islanders' lineup on Friday against the Panthers.

He'll center the third line and be flanked by Alan Quine and Jason Chimera, so at least they'll be a trio that's fleet of foot. The trio combine for just 30 points, led by Chimera's 12. Beauvillier, still, with his nine points in 26 games is rather respectable for any non-uber rookie like Auston Matthews.
Jan 13 - 6:35 PM

Thomas Greiss will get the nod Friday night.

Greiss is making his fifth straight start. He has a 9-6-2 record, 2.29 GAA, and .927 save percentage in 18 contests in 2016-17.
Jan 13 - 12:18 PM

The Islanders have summoned Scott Mayfield.

Mayfield has three goals and six points in 23 AHL contests in 2016-17. He also has a goal, two assists, and 17 penalty minutes in three games with the Islanders.
Jan 12 - 11:24 AM

Travis Hamonic (lower body) has been put on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to January 7. Hamonic has two goals and 12 points in 35 games this season. This move allowed the Islanders to summon blueliner Scott Mayfield.
Jan 12 - 11:22 AM

Thomas Greiss allowed two goals on 24 shots in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

All three goals in this game were scored by defensemen, as Keith Yandle and Jason Demers scored for the Panthers, while Nick Leddy found the back of the net for the Islanders. Greiss has now dropped three starts in a row, but he's given up two goals or less in each of those defeats. He has a 9-6-2 record with a 2.29 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage in 2016-17.
Jan 11 - 10:15 PM

Nick Leddy found the back of the net in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Florida Panthers.

Leddy's goal at the 10:47 mark of the first period tied the game at one. Casey Cizikas and Cal Clutterbuck picked up the assists on Leddy's sixth goal of the year.
