Islanders G Thomas Greiss ended Jaroslav Halak's six-game start streak in net Thursday night against the Flyers, but it wasn't a game to remember.
Greiss had another game where he allowed at least five goals, which is now the fifth time in the last six starts it has happened.
"In speaking with Thomas, he's frustrated," head coach Doug Weight told Newsday's Brian Heyman. "That's for sure. He looked to be aggressive...He's got to keep fighting. He battled in the third period. I thought he continued to compete and let us get back into the game in that last 15 minutes."
Greiss' record doesn't reflect his poor performances as he is 9-6-2 on the season thus far. However, his 3.89 goals against average and .882 save percentage over 20 games isn't going to cut it. This is why Halak, who has been improving, has been getting more starts for the Islanders of late.
