The New York Islanders fell to the Red Wings last night 6-3. Unfortunately, it was another off night for the Islanders goalies.
For the sixth time this year, Thomas Greiss allowed five goals or more for the New York Islanders. It’s been nothing out of the ordinary for Greiss to have a stinker in net. Unfortunately, the same could be said about Jaroslav Halak as well.
After the Islanders lost last night the Sportsnet Stats provided us with an update that isn’t too surprising but it is still gutwrenching to see. The Islanders goalies now have the worst save percentage in the NHL with .892
A combined sub .900 save percentage is just atrocious. The Islanders have allowed 119 goals this year which is second most in the league.
Last year, the Islanders allowed the eighth-most goals in the league with 238. They’re on pace to blow that out of the water. If the Isles continue at the same rate their at for the full 82 game season they will allow 287 goals, which would’ve led the league last year.
Reporters are still asking Doug Weight if he’s confident in his goalies and he’s starting to get frustrated:
We’re all frustrated too Dougie…
