Thomas Greiss allowed five goals on 41 shots in Thursday’s 7-5 win over the New York Rangers.

The five goals are the most Greiss has given up in a game this season. It’s been a solid bounce back season for the German netminder, who has now reached just under half of his wins from all of last season (13 wins during 2017-18). The 32-year-old will see his record improve to 6-2-1 with a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage.

Anthony Beauvillier scored three goals and picked up an assist in Thursday’s 7-5 win over the New York Rangers.

Beauvillier started tonight with just one goal in 16 games to open the season but finishes it with just five Islanders having more goals than him. He combined with Valtteri Filppula for the first two and he finished off his hat trick with a power play goal 5:13 into the second period. Beauvillier then ended his night with an assist on Leo Komarov’s third period goal. The 21-year-old winger was a popular sleeper pick to open the season. Keep an eye on him. Brock Nelson, Anders Lee and Cal Clutterbuck also scored in the win.

Nov 15 - 6:50 PM

Thomas Greiss is expected to start Thursday night.

Greiss was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good indicator of who the starter will be. He's coming off a 5-2 victory over Vancouver on Tuesday.
Nov 15 - 11:59 AM

Michael Dal Colle has been called up by the New York Islanders.

Dal Colle had no points in four games with the Islanders in 2017-18. He has seven goals and 14 points in 14 AHL games this season.

The New York Islanders have summoned Stephen Gionta.

Nov 15 - 11:49 AM

Matt Martin (upper body) is now on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to Nov. 1, so Martin can be activated whenever he's healthy. That being said, he has been ruled out for Thursday's contest.
Nov 15 - 11:48 AM

The New York Islanders have put Andrew Ladd (lower body) on the injured reserve list.

Ladd is out indefinitely due to the injury. He has three goals and seven points in 14 contests this season.

Matt Martin (upper body) won't play on Thursday night against the Rangers.

Casey Cizikas got "nicked up" in Tuesday's game against Vancouver, per coach Barry Trotz.

Cizikas did not participate in Wednesday as a result. Trotz isn't sure at this time if Cizikas will be available to play on Thursday night versus the New York Rangers.

Andrew Ladd did not practice on Wednesday and his status for Thursday night is unclear at this time.

Ladd got "nicked up," according to coach Barry Trotz, in Tuesday's game against Vancouver. Trotz isn't sure what Ladd's status is yet.
Nov 14 - 12:40 PM

With a goal on Tuesday, Cal Clutterbuck ended a 52-game drought.

Clutterbuck last scored a goal on Jan. 13. While he's not known primarily for his offensive contributions, his inability to score has been on his mind. "I think it would weigh on anybody," Clutterbuck said. "I think the worst part is a lot of self doubt that creeps in. A 10-game or 15-game slump is one thing. When it goes that long, you start to doubt your own ability. You get a good support system to keep reinforcing the fact that you’re playing well and you keep doing your job and it’ll go in. It did tonight and it’s a big relief."
Nov 14 - 7:14 AM

Thomas Greiss stopped 29 of 31 shots in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks.

Bo Horvat sent a cross-ice feed to Brendan Leipsic to open the scoring, leaving the German netminder with little chance on that one. Greiss was then beat on Canucks power play when Jake Virtanen potted home a rebound. The 32-year-old goaltender put together a solid performance tonight, improving his record to 5-2-1 with a 1.98 goals-against-average and a .938 save percentage. He has now given up two goals or less in four of his last five starts.
