Petr Mrazek was pulled in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the New York Islanders.
Mrazek pitched a shutout against the Lightning on Saturday so coach Mike Babcock gave him another start tonight. Unfortunately the coach's hunch didn't go over so well as Mrazek was pulled after allowing four goals on just 11 shots. Despite the rough outing, the 23-year-old didn't factor into the decision.

Petr Mrazek will get the start in Sunday's game against the New York Islanders.

Mrazek blanked the Lightning on Saturday and Mike Babcock is giving him another shot on Sunday. "Mrazek made some big saves, two in a row when we made a mistake on the penalty kill," Mike Babcock said after Saturday's win. "I thought he was real solid today."

With doubts swirling around Jimmy Howard, Petr Mrazek made a case for himself in the Detroit Red Wings' 4-0 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mrazek stopped all 23 shots for his second shutout of the season, improving his 2014-15 record to 15-7-1. He's likely worth a roster spot if you're hurting for fantasy playoff goaltending, even if it's a 50-50 split with Howard.

Updating an earlier item, Petr Mrazek will in fact start Saturday afternoon against Tampa.

Jimmy Howard is struggling (eight goals allowed on 32 shots over parts of two games) so coach Mike Babcock is turning to Mrazek. If Mrazek plays well he could steal the starting job from Howard. "Everybody in the National Hockey League knows that the best guys get to play and if you're playing the best you get to play," Babcock said. "Anytime you're struggling as a player it's your job to work extra hard when you get your opportunity. It's no different for Pete Mrazek. He gets an opportunity. He's got to seize it. We just watch and they decide who plays. Everyone thinks the coach decides. All the coach does is observe, and then the guys who play the best get to play." Sounds like Mrazek has an opportunity to displace Howard, at least in the short term. Let's see what he does with it.

Petr Mrazek will be in goal for Saturday's game against Tampa Bay.

Coach Mike Babcock made the call after Jimmy Howard posted a pair of poor starts. Howard was pulled in Thursday's 6-4 loss to San Jose, but Mrazek got the loss after he allowed two goals on 19 shots.
Mar 27 - 9:16 AM

Petr Mrazek allowed three goals on 32 shots as the Wings fell 3-1 to the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

It is just Mrazek's third loss in his last 12 games, as he couldn't quite follow up his magnificent 42-save victory over Pittsburgh on March 15. Mrazek's record falls to 14-6-1 this season.
Mar 19 - 10:39 PM

Petr Mrazek will get the nod on Thursday.

Mrazek is being rewarded for his 42-save victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday. He has a 2.47 GAA and .914 save percentage in 21 games this season.
Mar 17 - 1:34 PM

Coach Mike Babcock hasn't decided who will start in goal yet on Thursday versus Florida, but it could be Petr Mrazek.

Mrazek made 42 stops in a 5-1 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday after Jimmy Howard allowed seven goals in a 7-2 loss to Philadelphia last Saturday. "He's good, he's just good and he relishes these opportunities," Babcock said referring to Mrazek. "He thinks he's going to win and he has the capability. We needed a win and we didn't help Howie (Jimmy Howard) last night (in the loss to Philadelphia) but we helped Pete early, and better, and Pete was good."
Mar 17 - 9:06 AM

Petr Mrazek stopped 42 of 43 shots in Sunday's 5-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Mrazek was named the game's first star for his effort. The Penguins were without Evgeni Malkin in this game, but that shouldn't take away from Mrazek's performance. The 23-year-old has now won four of his last five games and he has only given up seven goals during that span. Mrazek's record improves to 14-5-1 and he has a 2.47 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage.
Mar 15 - 3:35 PM

Petr Mrazek will get the start versus the Pittsburgh Penguins on Sunday afternoon.

Coach Babcock was adamant that Jimmy Howard's disastrous seven-goal effort versus Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon is not the reason why Mrazek will see the crease on Sunday. Which bears out reasonably well considering it wouldn't serve Detroit much purpose to start Howard twice in a row anyway. Through 18 starts and 20 games this season, Mrazek sports a 13-5-1 record with 47 goals against. He also owns 10 Quality Starts against five Really Bad Starts.
Mar 14 - 8:31 PM

Jonas Gustavsson left Sunday's tilt with Boston after two periods due to an undisclosed injury, prompting coach Mike Babcock to announce that the Red Wings will call up Petr Mrazek to back up Jimmy Howard.

Through 20 games and 18 starts this season, Mrazek has put together a 13-5-1 record with 47 goals against. However, he's posted just 10 Quality Starts against five Really Bad Starts. Not a good ratio at all.

Petr Mrazek has been sent to the minors.

The Red Wings initially ran with three goaltenders once Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson were healthy, but it's not surprising that they ultimately decided to return Mrazek to the AHL. There's still a chance that they'll trade Jonas Gustavsson, which would open the door for Mrazek to serve as the team's backup going forward, but Mrazek is still just 23 years old and might be better served by getting regular starts in the minors rather than watching Howard play in the NHL.
Feb 17 - 12:18 PM

Petr Mrazek won't be going to the AHL just yet.

Although Mrazek is destined to be returned to Grand Rapids now that Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson are healthy again, the young netminder will back up Howard Saturday against the Jets with Gustavsson being a healthy scratch. Mrazek has a bright future after posting an 8-2 record while subbing in for Howard but barring more injuries he won't be much of a factor for the balance of this season.
Feb 14 - 10:25 AM

Although both Jimmy Howard and Jonas Gustavsson are healthy now, the Red Wings aren't committed to sending Petr Mrazek to the minors.

For now Detroit will carry three goaltenders. Mrazek will serve as Howard's backup on Saturday. It's hard to see having three goalies on the roster work out as it rarely does, so unless there's a trade or another injury, we expect Mrazek to eventually be sent to the minors.
Feb 13 - 12:39 PM

It was a poor night Wednesday for Detroit goaltender Petr Mrazek, who was replaced by Jimmy Howard after two periods of the Red Wings' 4-1 loss to the Penguins in Pittsburgh.

Mrazek allowed four goals on only 15 shots. His record still isn't bad, at 13-5-1. His goals-against average, however, shot up to 2.55 and his save percentage is now .909. Howard saved the only four shots he saw in the third period. Howard is the Wings' first-string goalie, of course, but he hadn't played since Jan. 10 because of a groin injury. Fantasy owners, take note. Look for Howard to be in most games the rest of the season, as long as he remains healthy.
