Mrazek will start in goal Tuesday evening, facing the Stars on home ice, The Detroit News reports.

Mrazek has only faced Dallas once in his career, a relief outing last season in which he saw a mere 11:06 of work between the posts. The plot line for the Red Wings in the upcoming contest will be how well they can support Mrazek despite a rash of injuries; seven skaters in red are on injured reserve, which could spell trouble against a Stars team known to be dangerous on the attack.
