Mrazek allowed four goals on 13 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Ducks on Friday.
There's no sugarcoating that stat line -- Mrazek didn't have his best stuff. His record dropped to 4-1-0 with 12 goals allowed over five appearances. The Hurricanes don't play again until Thursday in Columbus. Coach Rod Brind'Amour has alternated between Mrazek and James Reimer evenly this season -- if that pattern holds, Thursday's start would go to the latter.
Mrazek will occupy the road crease in Friday's game in Anaheim, Ducks PA announcer Phil Hulett reports.
Mrazek has been excellent this season with a 1.94 GAA and a .919 save percentage through four starts. He's won each of those games, most recently shutting out the Kings on Tuesday.
Mrazek stopped all 31 shots in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Kings.
Mrazek's already been good this season, but now he also has his first shutout under his belt. It's the 20th shutout of the 27-year-old's career. James Reimer will likely start Wednesday's game in San Jose, but look for Mrazek to return to the crease Friday in Anaheim to close out the California leg of the road trip.
Mrazek will tend the road goal for Tuesday's contest against the Kings, Dennis Bernstein of NHL Network reports.
Despite average numbers -- 2.57 GAA and .882 save percentage -- in three games this season, Mrazek has yet to drop a game. He'll likely be busy in Tuesday's action, considering the Kings are second in the league in shots per game with 37.4. He's faced the Kings just three times in his career, going 2-1-0 along with a .957 save percentage and 1.34 GAA.
Mrazek allowed two goals on 19 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Islanders.
Mrazek wasn't tested much, and the Hurricanes took over in the second period to make life easier for their goalie. The 27-year-old has won all three of his starts this year, but this was the first time he got it done in regulation. James Reimer is likely to get the start in Saturday's game versus the Blue Jackets on the tail end of a back-to-back.
