Petr Mrazek doesn't plan to prepare for the 2015-16 campaign any differently, although he's obviously aware of the raised stakes.
Mrazek will enter the season in a competition with Jimmy Howard for the starting gig. He earned the right to fight for that spot by posting a 2.38 GAA and .918 save percentage in 29 regular season games. He was given the nod in the playoffs and nearly got Detroit past Tampa Bay in the first round with his 2.11 GAA and .925 save percentage in seven contests. "Only one goalie can play," Mrazek said. "I'm going to do my best to play as much as I want to and do the best job." Although many might regard Mrazek as the favorite at this point, we expect Howard to get every opportunity to bounce back and it wouldn't be at all surprising if they split the goaltending duties evenly in 2015-16.

Petr Mrazek earned plenty of praise for his performance against Tampa Bay in Detroit's first-round playoff exit.

"Outstanding, he gave us a chance to win every night," captain Henrik Zetterberg said. "He did the same thing tonight. He made some key, key saves. He didn't get a lot of chances but when you get them, they're dangerous and he was good." Coach Mike Babcock said that Mrazek was great and that he'll continue to get better. He has a chance to challenge Jimmy Howard for starts as soon as next season.

Detroit goalie Petr Mrazek played relatively well Wednesday night in the Red Wings' 2-0, series-ending loss to the Lightning in Tampa Bay.

Mrazek made 15 saves, some very good, and allowed only one goal in Game 7 of the teams' Eastern Conference First Round playoff series. It was Mrazek's first Game 7 in the NHL. He enjoyed a top-notch series, posting two shutouts to go with a 2.11 goals-against average and a .925 save percentage. Jimmy Howard is still in Detroit but Mrazek, only 23, made a name for himself in this series and could be a good fantasy option next season.

He did, however, give up four goals on 27 shots in a 5-2 game 6 loss Monday night. Wednesday will be a true test for the youngster as he looks to lead the Wings into the second round of the 2015 NHL playoffs.

Goalie Peter Mrazek's win streak and shutout streak ended Monday night when he and the Detroit Red Wings were defeated 5-2 by the visiting Tampa Bay Lightning in the sixth game of their Eastern Conference First Round playoff series.

Mrazek, a rookie, had been brilliant in five playoff games, but he was average at best Monday. He stopped 23 shots, including a couple of 10-bell saves on Brian Boyle and Steve Stamkos, but he allowed four goals in the defeat. Game 7 of this series will be played Wednesday in Tampa Bay. Mrazek is now 3-3 in the playoffs, with a goals-against average of 2.29 and a save percentage of .924.

He has been absolutely brilliant in the five playoff games head coach Mike Babcock has started him, posting a 1.91 goals-against-average and .937 save percentage with two shutouts.

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.

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.
Apr 25 - 9:16 PM

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.
Apr 25 - 9:54 AM

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.
Apr 23 - 11:40 PM

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.

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
