Thomas Greiss to face #Isles
Looks like Thomas Greiss will make his first career start against the Isles tonight.
Greiss played 9:36 of the second period in a game against the Isles on February 18, 2008. Greiss temporarily replaced Evgeni Nabakov, who had been injured when a shot by Radek Martinek hit him in the mask. Nabakov returned to the game for the third period as the Isles rallied from a 2-0 deficit early in the period to defeat the Sharks 3-2.
Greiss hasn't played in two weeks, and is 1-2-0 on the season. He played in Sweden last season.
Forever1940 is the nom de plume of Eric Hornick, statistician on Islander home telecasts since 1982. Visit my blog: NYISkinny.com and follow me on Twitter @ehornick
