In the NHL, the New York Islanders are still out of shape. Against the Carolina Hurricanes, they are facing their next defeat – the playoffs are in danger.
The negative series of national goalkeeper Thomas Greiss and the New York Islanders in the NHL continues.
The 34-year-old lost 3-2 overtime to the Carolina Hurricanes with the Islanders and is in danger of falling out of the play-offs after the sixth consecutive defeat.
In sixth place at the Eastern Conference, the Hurricanes are now only two points clear of the ninth-placed Hurricanes 15 games from the end of the main round. Greiss showed a decent performance and parried 25 of the 28 shots at his goal. Tom Kühnhackl was not used by the hosts.
Holzer debuts for Predators
Things went better for Korbinian Holzer on his debut for the Nashville Predators. The 32-year-old defender, who was surprisingly sent to Tennessee by the Anaheim Ducks shortly before the trade deadline on 24 February, celebrated a 1-0 victory with the Predators at the Dallas Stars. Holzer was on the ice for just over eleven minutes.
In the first six games for his new team, Holzer had failed to make the grade after at least making regular appearances in his sixth season with the Ducks.
