Mrazek's the No. 1 for Red Wings

Detroit goalie has won job from Jimmy Howard

by Paul Harris / Correspondent

DETROIT -- Henrik Zetterberg and his Detroit Red Wings host the Boston Bruins on Sunday at Joe Louis Arena (3:30 p.m. ET; NBC), and it's not difficult for the Detroit captain to pinpoint why it's a contender in the Atlantic Division.

"It's definitely a Mrazek thing, combined with the team thing," Zetterberg said. "It doesn't matter how good a team is in front of you, if you're not stopping the puck you won't reach those numbers. He's probably a little modest about it, but he should be proud of that and he's been playing well all year."
