Tuesday Trivia - 9/11/2012

by Patrick Hooper / San Jose Sharks

Tuesday Trivia is a weekly feature of the Daily Chomp. Answer this week's question, then check back next week for a new question and prize.

The role of backup goaltender can be as tough of job as they come in the NHL. At any moment, their number can be called, requiring a high level of play after coming in cold off the bench. Assuming that backup role in 2011-12, Thomas Greiss played 19 games collecting 9 wins for the Sharks. Some of Greiss' relief efforts were quite stellar, notably a 29 save performance against Pittsburgh on November 3 to get a shootout victory. Greiss also showed off some late game heroics later in the season when he won the first game in Sharks history by a goalie who entered the game in the third period or later when trailing.

TRIVIA: Against which opponent did Thomas Greiss collect the first win in Sharks history by a goaltender who entered the game in the third period or later while trailing?

(HINT: Check out the "Best of" Thomas Greiss from the 2011-12 Season)

Prize: Submit your answer in the form below for a chance to win a Greiss signed puck. Submissions must be received by Thursday, Sept. 13 at 12 p.m. (Pacific).
