Red Wings' Petr Mrazek: Prevails over Stars on Tuesday
Mrazek was fantastic Tuesday, turning aside 34 of 35 shots in a 3-1 home win over Dallas.
Mrazek earned his sixth win in what was his 14th appearance of the season. He's actually received more crease time than Howard (1.82 GAA, .940 save percentage in 12 appearances) despite having worse numbers (2.91 and .905), which has been a source of aggravation for owners of both netminders in the first couple months of the campaign. Given Mrazek's performance in this one, however, it seems likely he'll start in the team's next contest against Florida on Thursday before giving way to Howard in a back-to-back set on the weekend.
