Mrazek turned away 28 of 30 shots from the Panthers in a 2-1 overtime loss Thursday.

The Czech tender looked spry in the crease throughout this contest, but punchy pivot Aleksander Barkov was able to dangle around him in overtime. Mrazek's getting used to bonus hockey -- three out of his past four outings have gone into the extra frame. This heavy workload, coupled with the fact that complementary goalie Jimmy Howard (groin) is ailing, means it wouldn't be a surprise to see coach Jeff Blashill turn to rookie Jared Coreau for his NHL debut soon.
