HURRICANES (33-28-15) at ISLANDERS (40-25-9)
TV: 7 p.m. ET; FS-CR, MSG+, NHL.TV
NEW YORK -- New York Islanders goaltender Thomas Greiss was arguably their most valuable player over the first half of their season. But now they need him more than ever.
Greiss, who is 1-5-1 over his past seven games and has lost four in a row, will get the start when the Islanders host the Carolina Hurricanes at Barclays Center on Tuesday. After allowing six goals on 41 shots in a 7-4 loss at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday, Greiss is excited for the opportunity to respond.
