Petr Mrazek stopped 31 of 34 shots in a 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators on Friday.
It looked like we were in for a low-scoring, goaltending dual after both goalies stopped all 15 shots they faced after the first period. Even though the saves couldn't last forever, Mrazek was still good enough for the Red Wings to beat the Preds. The win improves Mrazek's record to 2-2-0 on the season. Oct 21 - 10:23 PM

Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek turned away 31 of the 32 shots he faced in a 5-1 slaughter of the Ottawa Senators in Detroit Monday night.

Mrazek needed this one. He had begun the season poorly, dropping both of his first two games and entering Monday with a goals-against average of 4.06. Now, however, he is 2-1-0 and his GAA is a more respectable 3.03. His save percentage also improved, from .899 to .913.

Petr Mrazek will get the start in Monday's game against the Ottawa Senators.

Mrazek dropped both of his first two games of the 2016-17 season. He enters tonight's game with a 4.06 goals-against-average and a .889 save percentage.

Petr Mrazek blocked 34 shots in the Detroit Red Wings 4-1 loss to the Florida Panthers Saturday night.

Mrazek saved several determined shots or this game might easily have been a much bigger blowout. Mrazek’s 34 blocked shots minimized his loss of fantasy points that were the result of the three he let past. The Panthers final goal of the night went into an empty net.

Petr Mrazek will be in net against the Panthers on Saturday.

In three career games versus Florida, Mrazek has turned away all but nine of the 128 shots he's faced and has won two of the three games. The Panthers come in with a depleted lineup without Jonathan Huberdeau and Nick Bjugstad, and boasts a career .923 save percentage in 95 games. Suffice it to say, this could be a good one for the young starter.
Oct 15 - 1:49 PM

Petr Mrazek allowed five goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Not the start Mrazek was looking for after he had a disappointing end to the 2015-16 regular season. It's also important to realize that three of the five goals he allowed were scored while the Red Wings were on the penalty kill. Last year, Detroit showed that they weren't afraid to turn to backup goalie Jimmy Howard when Mrazek struggled at the end of the season, so he'll need to play better in a hurry.

Petr Mrazek will play between the pipes Thursday night.

It's not too surprising to see Mrazek get the nod for Detroit's season opener. All the same, Jimmy Howard shouldn't be written off in the long run as he might prove to be a strong challenger for the No. 1 spot.
Oct 13 - 1:24 PM

Petr Mrazek stopped 28 shots on goal in the Red Wings 4-3 victory over the Maple Leafs.

Mrazek needed a good night to challenge Jimmy Howard for the No. 1 goalie slot. A victory is a step in that direction, but his save percentage of .906 was notably lower than he experienced in 2015-16 with the Wings. He saved .921 percent of the shots that season and .918 in 2014-15.
Oct 8 - 9:50 PM

Look for Petr Mrazek to play between the pipes on Saturday.

That will be Detroit's finale preseason contest before the start of the 2016-17 campaign. It wouldn't be surprising to see Mrazek get the nod in Detroit's season opener.
Oct 6 - 12:30 PM

Petr Mrazek was not at his finest on Sunday night, surrendering three goals on 14 shots in pre-season action against Chicago.

Mrazek played better than his counterparts in the Blackhawks' goal however, as the Red Wings beat Chicago 6-3. Mrazek will look to play consistently this season and fend off Jimmy Howard's charge to take back the number one goalie spot in Detroit.
Oct 3 - 12:05 AM

Petr Mrazek will make his pre-season debut Sunday evening against Chicago.

Mrazek, who has returned from his World Cup of Hockey stint with the Czech Republic where he posted a 2.98 GAA and .925 SP in two games, is scheduled to play the entire game Sunday. Mrazek is expected to the lion' share of playing time over Jimmy Howard this season.
Oct 2 - 9:58 AM

Petr Mrazek stopped 36 of 39 shots in Team Czech Republic's 4-3 win over the United States.

Mrazek gave up three goals in this game, but his team never trailed in this contest. The Red Wings goalie finishes the tournament with a 1-0-1 record and a .925 save percentage.
Sep 22 - 11:17 PM

Petr Mrazek defended 38 of 41 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to Team Europe on Monday afternoon.

The Czech Republic started Michal Neuvirth in their 6-0 loss to Canada to open the World Cup of Hockey, so it was Mrazek's turn in game two of the tournament. He kept the Czechs in the game, but was beaten on a breakaway goal by Leon Draisaitl during the extra session to give him the loss.

Chris Osgood doesn't see the upcoming goalie battle for the No. 1 spot between Petr Mrazek and Jimmy Howard as a bad thing.

"For one thing, you need two goalies now," Osgood said. "People underestimate that. It’s not like the old NHL where there’s 10 really good teams, 10 are mediocre, and 10 aren’t very good. Every game is difficult. Two, the schedule is going to be really tough this year because of the World Cup. You’re going to need two guys who can play a lot." Certainly there are benefits to having two potential No. 1s, but it can also lead to drama and a lot of second-guessing. From a fantasy perspective, it also muddies the waters if you're going to bet on one of the two netminders. In the case of the Red Wings though, we think the odds are in favor of Mrazek securing the top job.
