Watch: Petr Mrazek denies Brian Boyle with incredible stick save

Tuesday April 28th, 2015

Detroit Red Wings goalie Petr Mrazek robbed Tampa Bay Lightning forward Brian Boyle with a stunning stick save in the second period of Monday's Game 6. 

Tampa Bay's Vladislav Namestnikov found Boyle wide open in front of the net and the 6'7" Boyle made a subtle deke to force Mrazek out of position. Mrazek recovered and lunged to his right, stopping Boyle's shot with his stick.

Mrazek has shut out the Lightning twice in this series and once in the regular season, the only three shutouts Tampa Bay has had this season.

Mrazek's save helped keep Detroit's deficit at two goals. The Lightning, trailing 3-2 in the series, can force a Game 7 with a win on Monday. 

Tampa Bay is seeking to advance past the first round of the playoffs for the first time since 2011.
