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.
