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.
