Petr Mrazek has blanked the Lightning three times this season, including twice in the playoffs.
The 23-year-old netminder is the only netminder this year who has shut out the high-scoring Lightning, but all that matters to him is getting the wins. "It's nice to have the shutout but it doesn't matter," said Mrazek. "It's the playoffs and it doesn't matter if you give up three or four goals and win, that's the most important stuff." He has posted a .937 save percentage and a 1.91 goals-against average in the series. Apr 27 - 11:29 AM

Petr Mrazek said he feels calm and confident between the pipes for Detroit.

The Wings now hold a 3-2 advantage in their best-of-seven series against Tampa Bay. The young goaltender's performance is a big reason why Detroit has a chance to advance into the second round on Monday night. "I do (feel calm) but it's a new game Monday and this is over and now I just think about Monday," Mrazek said. "We knew they'd come out hard in the first 10 minutes. We started to play better and we had more shots after that." Coach Mike Babcock also sang Mrazek's praises. "He's an elite competitor and has good savvy about him," Babcock said. "He thinks he's going to win, he's a confident guy, and he has great athleticism."

Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek made 28 saves en route to a 4-0 shutout of the Lightning in playoff action in Tampa Bay Saturday.

It was Mrazek's second shutout of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He held the Lightning goalless on three power plays, too. The win gave Detroit a 3-2 advantage in the best-of-seven series. The Wings will have a chance to advance to the second round of the post-season with a win in Game 6 of the series Monday night. Mrazek has been the Wings' best player in this opening-round series. He is 3-2 against the Lightning in the post-season, with a goals-against average of 1.91. His save percentage is .937. The Lightning was favored to win the series but, if the Wings take it, it'll be largely because of Mrazek's magnificence.

It should come as no surprise that Petr Mrazek will get the start in Game 5 Saturday evening against the Lightning in Tampa.

Mrazek has arguably been the best Red Wing in the series. He boasts a 2-2 record with a 2.43 goals against average and a .922 save percentage and was strong even in Game 4 when the Bolts scored three goals in the final 7:51 of the third period to steal the win.

Petr Mrazek allowed three goals in the final 7:51 of Thursday night's Game 4 as the Wings blew a two-goal lead and lost 3-2 in overtime to Tampa Bay.

Mrazek falls to 2-2 in the post-season with a .922 save percentage and 2.43 goals against average. The 23-year old has been solid in the series with Tampa Bay, and on Tyler Johnson's overtime winner the Bolts came crashing in on him with a three-on-one rush. The Czech netminder will look to rebound in Game 5 on the road.

Petr Mrazek will get the start on Thursday night for Game Four against Tampa Bay.

Mrazek has turned away 80 of 86 shots sent his way through the first three games of the series, which includes a shutout with two Quality Starts and one Really Bad Start. Thus in large part is why the Red Wings lead the series 2-1 so far.
Apr 23 - 5:31 PM

Petr Mrazek turned aside all 22 shots he faced Tuesday as the Red Wings shut out Tampa Bay by a score of 3-0.

Mrazek was excellent on this night and outplayed counterpart Ben Bishop in what was an otherwise evenly-matched contest. He'll continue starting for the Red Wings going forward while Jimmy Howard watches on from the bench.
Apr 21 - 9:48 PM

Petr Mrazek will be between the pipes for the Red Wings on Tuesday in Game 3 against Tampa Bay.

He was yanked in Game 2 after he permitted four goals on 18 shots in 40 minutes of action. Jimmy Howard turned aside 11 of the 12 shots he faced in relief, but he'll return to the bench as Mrazek's understudy. "I thought our goalie was real good in Game 1," coach Mike Babcock explained. "I thought their goalie was real good in Game 2. Here we are going home."
Apr 21 - 10:48 AM

Petr Mrazek will remain the Red Wings’ starting goaltender, coach Mike Babcock said after Game 2.

Mrazek was yanked after the second period when he allowed four goals on 18 shots in the 5-1 Game 2 loss. The first-round series shifts to Detroit on Tuesday. Mark posted a 2.38 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage during the regular season, and he stopped 44 of 46 shots in Game 1.
Apr 18 - 7:53 PM

After bailing out the Detroit Red Wings in Game 1, Petr Mrazek's buckled under the Tampa Bay Lightning attack in a 5-1 Game 2 loss.

Mrazek only made it through two periods, giving up four goals on just 18 shots. Jimmy Howard allowed a goal on 12 shots in relief. One would assume that Howard is likely to be the Game 3 starter, but we'll wait and see what Mike Babcock ends up saying.
Apr 18 - 5:50 PM

It should come as no surprise that Petr Mrazek will be back in the Red Wing goal for Game 2 against Tampa Saturday afternoon.

Detroit coach Mike Babcock indicated that he will not be making any lineup changes for Saturday afternoon's matinee. All Mrazek did was steal Game One stopping 44 shots. It will be hard for Mrazek to top that performance but he looks locked in at the moment and his play gives the Wings a chance to go back to Detroit up two games in the best of seven series.
Apr 18 - 9:12 AM

Petr Mrazek will start Game Two on Saturday afternoon against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Mrazek was stellar in Game One, making 44 saves in Detroit's 3-2 victory. It was his first career NHL playoff game, to boot. While it's unlikely that Mrazek will be able to duplicate such a brilliant performance, that'd be true for nearly any goaltender. The highly touted prospect may just be the real deal, so stay tuned.
Apr 17 - 8:52 PM

The Detroit Red Wings' minus-32 shot differential against the Tampa Bay Lightning last night was the worst in 50 years for a team that won in regulation in the playoffs.

Petr Mrazek deserves a lot of credit for that as he stopped 44 of 46 shots in the 3-2 victory. However, it also speaks to how fortunate Detroit was that things ended up the way they did. While certain Red Wings players were great in Game 1 on Thursday, the fact that the team won can also be seen as a gift. Now they have to work hard so that it isn't squandered.
Apr 17 - 2:37 PM

Petr Mrazek was sensational in his first career playoff start on Thursday night, making 44 saves on 46 shots to help the Wings snag Game 1 on the road from Tampa Bay.

Mrazek rewarded head coach Mike Babcock with his decision to give the 23-year-old the start over Jimmy Howard, who has been in net the past five years at post-season time. Mrazek went 16-9-2 with a 2.38 goals against average and .918 save percentage in the regular season. The young Czech certainly provided the spark in goal the Wings were looking for.
Apr 16 - 11:09 PM

Petr Mrazek will get the start in game one of Detroit's first round series against Tampa Bay.

The Wings will enter the series as a heavy underdog, but Mrazek could be the wild card. The 23-year-old played well when called upon this season, and he may need to stand on his head if the Red Wings want to move on to the next round. Mrazek has never played in an NHL playoff game, but he has a 20-14 record in the AHL playoffs. The young goaltender finished the NHL season with a 16-9-2 record to go along with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage.
