Keep the Mrazek Magic Going

It’s no secret that a big reason for current success for the Carolina Hurricanes is the man between the net for two of their three wins. That man of course being Petr Mrazek. Through three games played he has only allowed three pucks to trickle in behind him. All coming in the same game. That has him tied with Marc-Andre Fleury of the  Knights for second-best GAA in the league.

He also has managed to maintain an incredible 0.955 save percentage through those games. That has once again given him at second-best overall in the league.

But who is number one? Who has Mrazek beat and is denying him the top locations in these statistics? Unfortunately, it is the masked man who will be on the other end of the ice tonight. The man we all have known, loved, and adored during his time with the Carolina Hurricanes. That’s right, Anton Khudobin.

Expect tonight to be another netminding dual, especially if Dobby can have a repeat performance as he showed us during Dallas’s opening weekend last week.

If you are noticing that I am refusing to say a certain word. There is a good reason for that. The last time anyone in the media said the word before a game, that ended in the only loss of the season so far. So Abby, if you are reading this, no we did not forget. Superstitions exist for a reason and we absolutely did not forget.

Do. Not. Say. It.
