    Mrazek allowed six goals on 25 shots in a 6-2 loss to Boston on Sunday. The Bruins now lead the best-of-seven series 2-0.

    Impact

    Mrazek has allowed 10 goals through the first two games of this series, not the level of play his team was hoping for coming off a sweep of the Islanders. While nothing has been confirmed, expect him to remain Carolina's starter moving forward, beginning with Game 3 on Tuesday, but he'll likely have a shorter leash than what he's been used to so far in these playoffs.

    Mrazek will guard the net in Sunday's Game 2 road matchup with the Bruins, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Impact

    Mrazek appeared to be a little rusty in Game 1 -- the 27-year-old hadn't played since April 28 after sustaining a groin injury -- but made some nice saves against a hot Bruins team. Mrazek's four allowed goals and .852 save percentage Thursday were uncharacteristic of the solid postseason he's been having -- the netminder went 5-3-0 before Game 1, posting a 2.22 GAA and .913 save percentage. Mrazek and the Jerks face another tough test Sunday -- Boston has won four straight and has averaged four goals per game over those contests.

    News

    Mrazek allowed four goals on 27 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Boston in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals.

    Impact

    Mrazek and the Hurricanes saw their 2-1 lead disappear early in the third period after Boston scored two power-play goals in a 28-second span. Despite his pedestrian stat line, Mrazek's performance deserves recognition, as he made several key saves in the final frame to keep his team within striking distance. However, his teammates couldn't solve Tuukka Rask over the final 30-plus minutes.

    Mrazek (groin) will start between the pipes for Thursday's Game 1 road matchup with the Bruins, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Impact

    Mrazek missed Games 3 and 4 of Carolina's second-round sweep of the Islanders after sustaining a groin injury in Game 2. While Curtis McElhinney performed well in his absence -- 2-0-0 record with a 2.00 GAA and .931 save percentage -- the Ontario native will return to the crease to kick off Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. So far in the postseason, Mrazek is 5-3-0, has allowed 20 goals, and boasts a 2.22 GAA and .913 save percentage.

    News

    Mrazek (groin) was a full participant at Monday's practice, NHL.com's Kurt Dusterberg reports.

    Impact

    Mrazek missed Games 3 and 4 of the Hurricanes' second-round sweep of the Islanders after exiting Game 2 due to a groin injury, and while Curtis McElhinney performed admirably in his absence, as long as he's healthy, all signs point to Mrazek taking back his starting gig for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Bruins. The 27-year-old netminder has yet to be officially cleared, but more information regarding his status for Game 1 against Boston should surface in the coming days.
