GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Dave Moss scored late in the third period, Thomas Greiss stopped 16 shots, and the Phoenix Coyotes ended a seven-game losing streak with a 2-1 win over the Dallas Stars on Sunday night in the season finale for both teams.
His profession requires him to wear a mask, one he chose to decorate with blood-stained teeth and the bulging eyeballs of a yeti, but even without it on, Coyotes goalie Thomas Greiss still seems to be hidden.
The mellow, easy-going facade is genuine but plenty more lurks behind it — like a passion for mountain biking the Alps, a trip to Chile on his to-do list and an affinity...
GLENDALE, Ariz. -- There are bad weeks at the office and there are train wrecks after plunging off a 1,000-foot-high suspension bridge.
To recap the Coyotes' week -- one that followed a five-point, three-game Eastern road trip -- they lost two shootouts at home to non-playoff teams (the Jets and Oilers), blew a chance to move into seventh place against the Wild and got routed...

Even with a limited body of work for goalie Thomas Greiss this season, the Coyotes had enough confidence in him as a backup by the Olympic break that General Manager Don Maloney approached Greiss' agent during the league hiatus to discuss a contract extension.
Obviously, a deal wasn't accomplished, and one of the sticking points in the negotiation was Greiss' disappointment...
Sluggish in the first period, Phoenix scored its first two goals on fortunate bounces in the second.
Once the Coyotes got rolling, there was no stopping them, particularly the way Thomas Greiss was turning away shots.
Greiss stopped 27 shots, Lauri Korpikoski had a goal and two assists, and the Coyotes rolled to a 6-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

Phoenix Coyotes goalie Thomas Greiss has officially won the award for the creepiest goalie mask in the NHL. I’m not sure the reasoning behind having this demonic creature on his mask, but if the purpose is to scare opponents, Greiss was successful. [Deadspin]

This is the new headgear for Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss. I have no clue what in the world that demon creature is supposed to be. Is it a zombie? Is it a werewolf? Is it a zombie werewolf? Maybe Ryane Clowe having a bad day? All I do know is my pants are now a little more damp than they were. [photo via @kkurzcsn]
