News: Greiss blew a two-goal lead in the final three minutes of the third period Thursday against the Red Wings, then lost in overtime. He ended up allowing four goals on 31 shots. Impact: A rough season debut for Greiss, who looked to be cruising to a relatively easy win until Henrik Zetterberg went to work turning the game around for the Wings. The Penguins gave Marc-Andre Fleury their first five starts of the year and will likely return Fleury to the net for Saturday's game in Nashville.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Mike Johnston confirmed Greiss will start Thursday against the Islanders. Impact: Greiss will replace Marc-Andre Fleury in goal, but the Penguins will otherwise skate the same lineup they used Wednesday against Philadelphia. The Red Wings will counter with Jimmy Howard as their goaltender.(RotoWire, )

News: Greiss is expected to make the start in goal Thursday against the Red Wings, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Impact: With Mike Johnston pledging last week that he'd give Greiss a start at some point during the Penguins' road swing, Thursday would sound like an ideal opportunity for the backup to see action, with the team playing the second game of a back-to-back set. If Greiss indeed plays Thursday, it would mark the Penguins debut for the netminder, who was inked to a one-year contract in the offseason after posting a 10-8-5 record, 2.29 GAA and .920 save percentage with the Coyotes in 2013-14.(RotoWire, )

News: Coach Mike Johnston hinted Wednesday that Marc-Andre Fleury could start both Thursday against Dallas and Saturday versus the Islanders. Impact: Greiss may have to wait until the team plays three times in four days during Week 3 before making his season debut. The backup had a strong preseason but Pittsburgh has had a light schedule thus far and Fleury has looked good.(RotoWire, )
