The 5 Hole: Glorious Greiss in Raleigh

If the Islanders were going to continue to stay in the race for the playoffs, they know they were going to have to lay it all on the line earlier this evening in Raleigh against the Hurricanes. Coming off their 3-0 victory over the Rangers last night, the Isles were right back at it on the second half of a crucial back-to-back swing.

Both the Isles and the Canes are withing a point of each other as they are still fighting for either of the two wild card slots in the Metro. So it was safe to say, once again, that tonight was the biggest game of the season for both clubs. The game also featured a marquee moment in NHL history, as the two Sebastian Aho’s faced off for the first time ever.

Thomas Greiss got the call in goal, as New York won their second in a row 3-0. Thomas Greiss was brilliant making 45 saves, while Anthony Beauvillier’s fantastic effort was the insurance the Isles needed. Doug Weight and Co. now get a few days off before a Monday matinee at home with the Wild. The top hits from social media from tonight’s big win are below:
