Barry Trotz has talked about how he has two good options to choose from in goal. And talked about that many times. When the Islanders hit the ice for Game 3 on Thursday night, Trotz will have already made a tough choice in net. Thomas Greiss or Semyon Varlamov?
The Islanders bench boss hasn’t really had to face that question of who will start during the postseason. Varlamov has been the go-to since the start of Qualifying Round and he has given the Islanders a strong effort ever since. However, that changed a bit on Wednesday when Varlamov surrendered three goals on 10 shots and Greiss came in midway through the first period in relief.
