Greiss, Injury-Ravaged Pens Triumph Over Jets

News: Thomas Greiss stopped 19 of 22 as the Penguins overcame the absences of Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to come away with a 5-3 win over the Jets on Tuesday.
Analysis: One heck of a way for the Pens to come out of the break, but not an impressive outing for Thomas Greiss, who let the Jets take a 3-2 lead before his offense came roaring back. He'll return to the bench Wednesday, as Marc-Andre Fleury will slot back into his typical spot in goal.

Penguins Go With Greiss Tuesday

News: Thomas Greiss is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Jets, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: With Thomas Greiss slated to start Tuesday's game, Marc-Andre Fleury is in line to get the nod for the Penguins on Wednesday against the Caps.

Penguins Could Turn To Greiss Tuesday

News: Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette suggests that Thomas Greiss is likely to start Tuesday's game against the Jets.

Pens' Greiss Plays Well In Tuesday Loss

News: Thomas Greiss stopped 37 of 40 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Flyers on Tuesday.
Analysis: The backup goalie played well and was a big factor in helping his team to a regulation tie. Thomas Greiss was making just his third start since Dec. 13, but his effort in Philadelphia might give coach Mike Johnston more confidence to deploy him more frequently.

Penguins Turn To Greiss On Tuesday

News: Thomas Greiss is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Flyers, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Pens' Greiss Excels In Relief

News: Thomas Greiss stopped 13 of 14 shots in relief of Marc-Andre Fleury in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: The outcome was already decided by the time coach Mike Johnston removed Fleury from the game with 15 minutes remaining in the second period, as the Rangers had already raced to a 4-1 lead by that point. Thomas Greiss did well to put the clamps on the New York attack the rest of the way, and will likely get the net for a full game during one of the Pens' two contests next week. If Greiss gets the nod Tuesday against the struggling Flyers rather than Wednesday against the powerful Blackhawks, he'd make for an excellent streaming option.

Greiss Starting Sunday For Pens?

News: The Penguins won't decide who will start Sunday at home against the Rangers until after Friday's tilt on Long Island.
Analysis: Pens coach Mike Johnston said that Marc-Andre Fleury will start Friday. For his part, Thomas Greiss has made just three appearances since November. He allowed three goals on 35 shots most recently in a home win over Tampa Bay on Jan. 2.

Pens' Greiss Notches First Home Win On Friday

News: Thomas Greiss made 32 saves in a 6-3 win over Tampa Bay on Friday.
Analysis: The German goalie stopped 13 of 14 shots over the game's final 20 minutes to help preserve the victory. Thomas Greiss, who was making just his second home start of the season Friday, entered the contest with a 3-2-2 mark, 2.53 GAA and .919 save percentage.

Pens' Greiss To Make Friday Start

News: Thomas Greiss will receive the start in goal Friday against the Lightning, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: It will be Thomas Greiss' first appearance post-mumps, as the netminder has been dealing with traces of the virus for around the past two weeks. He returned to active duty as the backup to Marc-Andre Fleury on Wednesday, but with the Penguins kicking off a back-to-back set Friday, Greiss will get a chance to return to the net. He's been one of the league's better number twos this season, going 3-2-2 with a 2.52 GAA and .919 save percentage over his seven appearances.

Penguins' Greiss Presumably Ready To Return

News: Thomas Greiss (illess) looks to be available for Wednesday's game against the Hurricanes following Jeff Zatkoff's assignment to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday,Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Thomas Greiss had missed the Pens' previous four games while dealing with the mumps, but is past the contagious period and resumed skating with the rest of the team Tuesday. Despite Marc-Andre Fleury's recent slump, it doesn't appear likely that Greiss will be a serious candidate for Wednesday's start, but it might not be long before he gets his next opportunity.

Pens' Greiss Works Out Sunday

News: Thomas Greiss (illness) rejoined the Penguins on Sunday, taking part in an on-ice session with the team's strength and conditioning coach.
Analysis: The news would suggest Thomas Greiss is past the contagious stage of his bout with the mumps. However, the virus undoubtedly put his body through the wringer, so he'll still need some more practice time before returning to active duty. Jeff Zatkoff will remain on hand as the backup goalie for Monday's game against the Devils while Greiss stays back in Pittsburgh.

Penguins' Greiss Dealing With Mumps

News: Thomas Greiss has been diagnosed with the mumps, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: A mumps test performed on Thomas Greiss last week came back negative, but it turns out he is actually dealing with the same setback that has affected numerous NHL players over the last several weeks. Jeff Zatkoff figures to serve as the backup goaltender behind Marc-Andre Fleury until Greiss is able to resume playing sometime in the next week or two.

No Mumps Update Until Friday For Pens' Greiss

News: The results of Thomas Greiss' tests for the mumps won't be available until Friday.
Analysis: With the NHL observing a three-day break in the schedule for the holidays, the status of Thomas Greiss, Steve Downie, and Brandon Sutter will remain shrouded in mystery until the Pens reconvene for practice. Greiss has already been unavailable for the team's past two games as a precaution.

Penguins' Greiss Undergoes Further Tests For Mumps

News: Thomas Greiss is being tested for the mumps and will not be available for Monday's game against the Panthers, Josh Yohe of The Tribune-Review reports.
Analysis: Thomas Greiss tested negative for the mumps just a few days ago, but it appears he is not out of the woods just yet. With Greiss unavailable Monday, Jeff Zatkoff is expected to be recalled to fill the backup duties behind Marc-Andre Fleury.

Pens' Greiss Passes Mumps Test

News: Thomas Greiss tested negative for the mumps and has been cleared to rejoin the team.
Analysis: After Thomas Greiss was feeling under the weather Thursday morning, the Penguins wasted no time in isolating him from the rest of the team due to concerns that he might be their third player to have acquired the mumps. Fortunately, it appears his symptoms of illness were unrelated to the virus, and it now looks like he'll resume his usual backup duties behind Marc-Andre Fleury on Saturday against the Panthers. Jeff Zatkoff, who served as the team's No. 2 netminder on Thursday while Greiss was unavailable, was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Friday after Greiss' encouraging test results were revealed.

Pens' Greiss Out Thursday

News: Marc-Andre Fleury will start in goal for the Penguins on Thursday while Thomas Greiss (illness) remains unavailable.
Analysis: It seemed as though Thomas Greiss might make for a solid waiver-wire or daily-league pickup when Fleury was battling an illness Wednesday, but the Flower is now healthy. Instead, it looks like it's Greiss who may be suffering from the mumps, though the results of his tests for the virus have yet to be revealed. Jeff Zatkoff will serve as Fleury's backup Thursday.

Penguins' Greiss Being Tested For Mumps

News: Thomas Greiss is being tested for the mumps.
Analysis: Thomas Greiss' short-term status is in question until it is determined what type of ailment he is dealing with. He was in position to see added playing time with fellow goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury potentially dealing with the mumps, but an exam cleared Fleury of any mumps symptoms, and it is now Greiss who could be the one missing time due to the illness making its way around the league. He'll likely be unavailable for at least Thursday's game against the Avalanche, as Jeff Zatkoff was called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to serve as Fleury's temporary backup.

Greiss To Start For Pens?

News: Thomas Greiss makes for a short-term speculative pickup, given starter's Marc-Andre Fleury's current sickness.
Analysis: The Penguins play home games Thursday against Colorado and Saturday versus Florida. It's possible that Fleury might miss those games if he indeed has contracted the mumps, putting Thomas Greiss in line for a pair of starts against two middling teams. The Pittsburgh backup sports a 3-2-2 mark with a 2.53 goals-against average and .919 save percentage.

Shootout Gets Best Of Pens' Greiss Saturday

News: Thomas Greiss allowed three goals on 27 shots in a 4-3 shootout loss to Columbus on Saturday.
Analysis: The backup surrendered a third-period, penalty-shot goal to Boone Jenner and then gave up two shootout goals (in three attempts). Thomas Greiss has made six of his seven starts on the road, permitting at least three goals in four of the contests. He's played well, but because the team typically starts him on the road, he's not the reliable option he might be if he played more often at Consol Energy Center.

Pens' Greiss Set To Start Saturday

News: Thomas Greiss is in line to start Saturday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: The Penguins will rest No. 1 goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, who guided the team to a 3-1 victory over the Flames on Friday night. Though he doesn't see much work behind Fleury, Thomas Greiss has been steady when called upon, going 3-1-1 with a 2.37 GAA and .927 save percentage. He'll match up against a Blue Jackets squad that has reeled off five wins in a row.

Pens' Greiss Loses In First Home Start Thursday

News: Thomas Greiss allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 3-0 loss to Vancouver on Thursday.
Analysis: The backup goalie, who was making his first home start in a Penguins sweater, misplayed one puck behind his own net for a goal. The entire team was outplayed by the Canucks on Thursday and Thomas Greiss was no different. Pittsburgh plays back-to-back games Dec. 12 and 13 and then Dec. 22 and 23, dates when Greiss is most likely to see his next starts.

Penguins' Greiss To Start Thursday

News: Thomas Greiss will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Canucks.
Analysis: Thomas Greiss will make his first home start of the season and give regular goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury the night off. He will not have an easy matchup with Pittsburgh facing off against a Vancouver team that won four of its last five games and currently sits fourth in the league with 3.08 goals per game.

Pens' Greiss Gets Job Done Saturday

News: Thomas Greiss made 32 saves in a 3-2 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday.
Analysis: Thomas Greiss is becoming a must-start whenever the Pens rest Marc-Andre Fleury. Although the backup goalie has made all five of his starts on the road, he improved to 3-1-1 with the win. Only a 6-on-4 Carolina goal with 11 ticks remaining in regulation prevented him from posting an even better night.

Pens' Greiss Likely To Go Saturday

News: Thomas Greiss will likely start Saturday's game in Carolina in the second of back-to-back games against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: The Penguins canceled their morning skate, so coach Mike Johnston won't officially announce his starter until he speaks to reporters around 5:00 PM. While there's a small chance starter Marc-Andre Fleury gets the opportunity to rebound from Friday's embarrassing team loss, look for Thomas Greiss to play during a heavy stretch of games.
