One heck of a way for the Pens to come out of the break, but not an impressive outing for 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.

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. 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.
