NEW YORK -- New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano remembers coaching against goaltender Thomas Greiss seven years ago in the American Hockey League. He knew he was good then.

"I was in Bridgeport, he was in Worcester. I don't know how many wins he had that year (30), but it was that year where it was with (Jonathan) Quick and (Jonathan) Bernier and (Tuukka) Rask, and he was just one of those guys that was down there as well," Capuano said. "None of these guys take me as a surprise. We knew he was a good goaltender. Has he exceeded expectations? I don't know. But he's working hard, that I can tell you. When you work hard, good things happen."
