Greiss has received the starting nod for Saturday's road game against the Red Wings, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss was pulled from his last start after the Penguins put the puck behind him five times on 21 shots, but that won't stop coach Barry Trotz from sending the German between the pipes for a fourth straight game. He'll field shots against a Detroit team that ranks 26th in the league in shots per game (29), and just 19th in scoring with a 2.9 average.

Greiss gave up five goals on 21 shots before getting the hook in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Penguins.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss was replaced by Christopher Gibson for the final 20 minutes. Kris Letang scored both of Pittsburgh's first-period goals, while two of the three pucks to elude Greiss in the second came off the stick of Phil Kessel. The German netminder's game has slipped noticeably of late -- he's 1-3-0 in his past four starts while allowing three-plus goals in five of the past eight. This dip in form has come at an inopportune time for the Islanders, as alternative option Robin Lehner is dealing with an undisclosed injury.

Greiss will defend the net Thursday against the Penguins in Pittsburgh, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss is piecing together one of the better seasons of his career thus far and has been equally as a good recently, posting a 2.20 GAA and a .924 save percentage over the last five contests. He will look to continue the recent string of successes between the pipes going into a tough matchup versus a Penguins squad notching 3.42 goals per game this season.

Greiss allowed two goals on 23 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Winnipeg.

EDGE Analysis

The loss drops the German netminder to 9-5-1 record to go with solid ratios (2.40 GAA, .925 save percentage). Greiss currently has the slight edge in terms of fantasy value over fellow Islanders netminder Robin Lehner, who's appeared in 12 less games and is currently day-to-day with an undisclosed injury.

Greiss will be between the pipes when the Islanders play the Jets on Tuesday, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss probably was going to start Tuesday anyway, but an injury to Robin Lehner took away any suspense. Greiss has had a solid season to date with a 2.42 GAA and .926 save percentage. Greiss will be tested in this contest however versus the high scoring Jets who are averaging 3.5 goals per contest.

Greiss has now been confirmed as Saturday's starter against Columbus, according to Newsday's Andrew Gross.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss is in the midst of a bounce-back campaign, with an 8-4-1 record, 2.45 GAA and .925 save percentage on the heels of last season's disastrous 3.82 GAA and .892 save percentage. This projects to be a low-scoring contest considering the Blue Jackets will counter with Sergei Bobrovsky, who has seven wins in his past eight starts and has held six of those eight opponents to two goals or fewer.

Greiss is expected to start Saturday versus the Blue Jackets, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Originally it was expected that Robin Lehner would get the nod after performing well in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Bruins on Thursday, but Greiss was the first goaltender off the ice Saturday morning which is usually the indicator of who will start for the team that night. Greiss last played Monday and saved 23 of 26 shots in the Islanders 4-1 loss to the Capitals.

Greiss yielded three goals on 23 shots in Monday's loss to the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss failed to win his third straight game, as Tom Wilson scored twice and Nic Dowd added a goal, too. The veteran goalie's play has been inconsistent, with three of the last five below a .880 save percentage and the other two above a .929. He'll look to get on the latter side of that if he's deemed the starter Thursday in Boston.

Greiss led the Islanders out to the ice for warmups Monday, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports. As a result, he will draw the home start versus the Capitals.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss getting the call here suggests that he's truly the No. 1 goaltender for the Islanders, as coach Barry Trotz undoubtedly wants to put in his best lineup against the Capitals, who didn't even include the coach in their video tribute honoring the 2018 Stanley Cup championship team, according to the New York Post. Greiss is 8-3-1 with a 2.40 GAA and .928 save percentage this season, and he's worth taking a chance on in daily formats since Evgeny Kuznetsov (upper body) and T.J. Oshie (head) are still out of commission.

Greiss will guard the goal in Saturday's home game against the Hurricanes, Andrew Gross of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

Greiss was sharp in his last start, stopping 39 of 42 shots en route to a 4-3 victory over the Devils on Friday. The 32-year-old netminder will look to stay dialed in and pick up his eighth win of the campaign in a home matchup with a hot Hurricanes team that's won three consecutive games.
