DETROIT -- Petr Mrazek was the Detroit Red Wings goaltender for their Eastern Conference First Round series against the Tampa Bay Lightning and played well in a seven-game defeat, but he'll have to compete with Jimmy Howard to claim the No. 1 job next season, general manager Ken Holland said Friday.
"My message to those guys today was professional sports is about competition and the competition begins again in September," Holland said as the Red Wings cleaned out their lockers at Joe Louis Arena.
"If you didn't like the way the season ended, then get in the gym and do the work and be ready to be better next season. If you liked the way it finished, then get in the gym and make sure things keep going your way."
