By The Numbers will highlight the Red Wings on-ice accomplishments in the 2014-15 season. Each week during the off-season, By The Numbers will profile a different player on the team, focusing on their statistical highs. This week we focus on goalie Petr Mrazek.

“He’s stopping the puck. It’s pretty simple,” captain Henrik Zetterberg said. “Mrazek has been good for us. We’ve seen it in the regular season when he’s played and he kept it going in the postseason. He plays with a lot of confidence and he gives us confidence.”


Shut out the Lightning three times, once in the regular season and twice in a first-round playoff series. He’s the only goaltender to shut out the Lightning during the regular season (March 28) and the first to blank them in Tampa Bay since the Penguins’ Marc-Andre Fleury did it Nov. 29, 2013.


The number of times he was pulled from the crease in 2014-15. He posted a combined 3-0-1 record with a 1.71 goals-against average and .949 save percentage in the four NHL starts that followed the games in which he was replaced.


In his last half dozen of wins in the regular season he posted a 0.50 goals-against average with a .982 save percentage, stopping 172 of 175 shots to defeat the Islanders (Jan. 31), Avalanche (Feb. 5), Coyotes (Feb. 7), Penguins (March 15), Lighting (March 28) and Hurricanes (April 11).


Faced a career-high number of shots on goal in the Red Wings’ 5-1 win at Pittsburgh (March 15). All but one Penguins skater registered a shot, including Patric Hornqvist (7), Sidney Crosby (6) and Ian Cole (5). Forward David Perron finally solved Mrazek midway through the third period after the Wings already built a five-goal cushion.


NHL clubs that the 23-year-old goaltender hasn’t faced yet in his young career. He played against 19 different teams in 29 appearances, including 26 starts in 2014-15. Still has yet to play the Blackhawks, Stars, Kings, Canadiens, Rangers, Flyers and Canucks.


Regular-season games where he allowed two or fewer goals, leading the Red Wings to an 11-4-2 record during 2014-15. In those games he posted a 0.98 goals-against average and a .957 save percentage.
