Mike Babcock wasn’t kidding when he said he would give Petr Mrazek “an opportunity” to stabilize Detroit’s goaltending.
Even after Mrazek got the hook Sunday on Long Island, he’ll be back between the pipes tonight at home versus Ottawa, with Jimmy Howard on the bench.
Mrazek gave up four goals on just 11 shots to the Islanders. Though to be fair, he did shut out the Lightning the day before.
The Wings’ next game after tonight’s is Thursday at home to Boston.
