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.
Feb 12 - 2:47 PM

Thomas Greiss has given up at least three goals in six of his last seven starts.

That's not good for the Penguins who do not want to overplay Marc-Andre Fleury and still have seven back-to-back games during the remainder of the season. Greiss is 5-3-3 this season with a 2.80 GAA and a .909 save percentage.
Feb 8 - 11:09 AM

Feb 8 - 12:56 AM

Thomas Greiss will get the start in goal for Pittsburgh on Saturday.

Marc-Andre Fleury started both games in Alberta and while he shut out both the Oilers and the Flames, he needs a night off so Greiss will start in Vancouver. Greiss is 5-2-3 this season with a 2.60 GAA and a .916 save percentage. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Feb 7 - 10:07 AM

Thomas Greiss wasn't perfect, but he did enough to earn a victory in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Winnipeg.

Greiss ceded three goals on just 22 shots in the contest, but still rewarded fantasy owners who trusted him in a rare start by notching a win. His record improves to 5-2-3 with the victory while his GAA now stands at 2.60 and his save percentage is .916. Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to start against the Capitals Wednesday.
Jan 27 - 9:38 PM

Thomas Greiss was the first goaltender to leave the ice for the Penguins Tuesday morning.

That's usually a good way of telling who the starter will be, so it looks like Greiss will get the nod. Marc-Andre Fleury played in the All-Star Game, so the Penguins presumably want to give their top goaltender a breather.
Jan 27 - 11:49 AM

Thomas Greiss put forth a strong effort Tuesday, but suffered a loss at the hands of the Flyers after he allowed three goals on 40 shots in a 3-2 defeat.

Greiss received a rare starting assignment on this night and likely played well enough to win, but he didn't receive enough offensive support from his teammates for that to happen. His record falls to 4-2-3 with the overtime loss while his GAA is 2.56 and his save percentage is .920.
Jan 20 - 11:59 PM

Thomas Greiss is probable to start for Pittsburgh on Tuesday at Philadelphia.

He was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, which indicates that he'll get the call. Pittsburgh hosts Chicago on Wednesday before the All-Star break, so Marc-Andre Fleury will probably be back in goal for that contest.
Jan 20 - 12:35 PM

Thomas Griess stopped 13 of 14 shots in relief of Marc-Andre Fleury during Sunday's 5-2 loss to the Rangers.

Greiss entered the game early in the second period after Fleury allowed four goals on 17 shots. This was only Greiss' second appearance since returning from the mumps in late December. The 28-year-old has a 4-2-2 record with a 2.53 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage. With the loss, Fleury's record drops to 22-9-4.
Jan 18 - 3:40 PM

Penguins backup goalie Thomas Greiss, returning to action for the first time since being diagnosed with the mumps, made 32 saves in Pittsburgh's 6-3 win over the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning Friday night.

It was the fourth win of the season for Greiss, who isn't a bad spot starter when first-stringer Marc-Andre Fleury gets the occasional breather. Greiss is 4-2-2 in eight starts with a save percentage of .919 and a goals-against average of 2.59.
Jan 2 - 11:14 PM

Thomas Greiss will indeed start against Lightning on Friday.

Greiss has allowed just 18 goals through his seven starts this season. He's not a bad spot-starter if you need one heading into the weekend, but his match-up isn't favorable so try to find someone a bit safer if you can.
Jan 2 - 5:33 PM

Thomas Greiss is projected to start for Pittsburgh on Friday.

Greiss was the first goaltender off the ice Friday morning, so that's why. He missed time due to the mumps and partially as a consequence of that, he hasn't played since Dec. 13.
