Thomas Greiss, filling in for first-string Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, didn't have a particularly impressive game Sunday, stopping only 16 of the 20 shots he faced in the Penguins' 4-1 loss to the Flyers in Philadelphia.

Greiss was outshone significantly by Philly goalie Steve Mason, who made 46 saves for the victory. Greiss now has a record of 9-6-3. His save percentage is .908 and his goals-against average is 2.59. The Pens have lost three games in a row and eight games against Philly dating back to last season.

Thomas Greiss will be between the pipes for Pittsburgh when the Penguins visit the Flyers in Philadelphia Sunday afternoon at 12:30 Eastern.

Greiss, who backs up Marc-Andre Fleury, is 9-5-3 with a .913 save percentage and a 2.51 goals-against average this season. He`s not a viable fantasy option because he doesn`t play enough but Fleury`s been having a tough time lately and is clearly in need of a rest. The Penguins have lost two straight coming into the game Sunday and are 3-7-1 in their past 11 games. They have lost seven consecutive games against Philadelphia dating back to last season.

Thomas Greiss beat his former team as the Pittsburgh Penguins topped the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Saturday.

Greiss is 9-5-3 with a .913 save percentage and 2.51 GAA this season. He hasn't received the sort of reps to really prove himself in 2014-15 but should be able to land another backup gig this summer.

Greiss comes in with a 8-5-3 record with 44 goals through 18 games this season. In five career starts versus Arizona, each with San Jose, Greiss is 2-3-0 with 12 goals against on 145 combined shots.
Mar 27 - 10:05 PM

Thomas Greiss was beaten just once on 19 shots Tuesday, but suffered a loss in a 2-0 shutout decision against New Jersey.

Mar 17 - 9:49 PM

Thomas Greiss will get the start against the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night.

The Pittsburgh Penguins couldn't provide any goal support to Thomas Greiss in a 2-0 loss to the Boston Bruins on Sunday.

Greiss only allowed one goal on 29 shots (the other was an empty-netter), but that was enough for a Bruins team that has been increasingly stingy lately. Greiss is now 8-4-3 after his three-game winning streak was snapped.

Mar 14 - 12:34 PM

Thomas Greiss turned away 27 of 29 shots the Ducks sent his way, and was supported by a 4-0 lead as his Penguins defeated the Ducks 5-2 on Friday night.

It was smooth-sailing the whole way through for Greiss, who saw 15 of his shots through the first two periods. The two goals came off a nice rip, and a fluky deflection that caught him out of position. Not too bad for the backup who was making just his 15th appearance of the season. Greiss improves to 8-3-3 with 41 goals against.

Feb 12 - 11:24 PM

Thomas Greiss will tend to Pittsburgh's goal Thursday night against Ottawa.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 23 of the 24 shots he faced in Wednesday's 4-1 win over Detroit, so he will get the night off. Greiss has appeared in just 12 games this season, where's posted a 5-3-3 record with a .909 save percentage and a 2.80 GAA.
