New York Islanders Daily: Thomas Greiss Continues Hot Streak
After another great performance last night, Thomas Greiss has improved his save percentage and goals against average for the New York Islanders.
Not too long ago, we wrote that the New York Islanders have the best goalie tandem in the league. Last night was more proof that the Islanders have not one but two capable NHL starters in net.
On 31 shots, Thomas Greiss allowed just one goal in the first period. On the play, Adam Pelech had a bit of a mental break which allowed for a wide open shot. There was nothing Greiss could do, he was in great position, he just got beat.
Over the last four games he’s played, Thomas Greiss has allowed just two goals on 130 shots. That’s a Godly .985 save percentage over that span, which includes two shutout performances. On the season he’s now up to a .926 save percentage and a 2.33 goals against average.
On the season, both Robin Lehner and Thomas Greiss are top-four in save percentage. Lehner’s .932 is second in the league while Greiss’ .926 is good enough for fourth. As far as goals against average goes, both Isles netminders are in the top-five.
Lehner’s 2.02 leads the league with Greiss’ 2.33 is good enough for fifth. What else could you possibly want out of these two? The main reason the Isles are in first place right now is due to the two goalies. Keep riding them out, it’s working.
