Greiss will start in Carolina on Friday.

Greiss’ last start was February 9th against the Red Wings where he continued his abysmal season, allowing five goals on 32 shots before being pulled from the game. Greiss has been so bad he hasn’t even been a threat to the playing time of Jaroslav Halak, who has had his own fair share of struggles this season. He gets a so-so matchup against the Canes’ tonight in what will be just his fourth start of the new year.
