Petr Mrazek has done well in the playoffs at minor-league levels. He was a star for the bronze-medal winning Czech Republic team at the 2012 World Junior Championships, and he has a Calder Cup championship under his belt.  But for most players, nothing compares to the Stanley Cup playoffs, and that can create nerves among even the best of the best.

Detroit Red Wings weekly: Déjà vu, all even going back to Detroit

Petr Mrazek stole Game 1 away from the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday with 44 saves on 46 shots. The Bolts quickly answered back Saturday afternoon with a 5-1 thrashing in Game 2. So, here we are.

Detroit Red Wings: Time to let the goose loose

Everyone can calm down now. Take a deep breath. Hockeytown, the sky isn’t falling. After a couple weeks of uninspiring play, the Detroit Red Wings (40-22-12) defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in convincing fashion, 4-0, Saturday afternoon at Joe Louis Arena.
