Red Wings goaltender Mrazek's 'Entourage' includes actor Kevin Dillon
To a man, Petr Mrazek and Jimmy Howard insist that there isn't any drama between the two goaltenders for the Detroit Red Wings.
A bit of "drama" entered the picture on Monday, however, as actor Kevin Dillon - known for his character Johnny Drama on the HBO hit show "Entourage" - posed for a photo with Mrazek. The two got together moments after the Red Wings saw their four-game winning streak come to an end with a 4-2 setback to the host Los Angeles Kings.

Dillon is no stranger to hockey, as the 50-year-old actor attended Game 5 of last season's Eastern Conference final series between the host New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning. Dillon admitted to the New York Daily News that he had always been a Rangers fan.
Mrazek (15-8-3, 2.16 goals-against average) was given the night off on Monday after making 10 consecutive appearances, highlighted by his selection as the NHL's Second Star of the Week earlier in the day. The 23-year-old Czech posted a 3-0-0 mark with a rail-thin 0.67 goals-against average and scintillating .978 save percentage during that stretch.
Mrazek is one victory shy of matching the total of last season, during which he posted a 16-9-2 mark with a 2.38 goals-against average in 29 games. Selected in the fifth round of the 2010 draft, Mrazek has secured a 34-22-5 career record with a 2.20 goals-against average and .924 save percentage in 68 NHL appearances.
