The Predators are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest, 11-5 in their last 16 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 vs.

"I think confidence is a huge thing for any player, certainly goalies it's exacerbated", Detroit coach Jeff Blashill was saying of Mrazek prior to Sunday's 3-2 loss to Toronto.

The return, according to the Red Wings, is a 2018 conditional fourth-round pick and a conditional third-round pick in the 2019 draft. After almost trading for Detroit Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek earlier, the Flyers circled back and got their guy.

So really, this trade works well for the Flyers and for Mrazek. Defensively, the Nashville Predators are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 82 percent of their opponents power plays.

The Red Wings blocked 10 Predators shots in the game's first 11 minutes, protecting Mrazek.

However, the year ended on a not too good note for the cryptocurrency market, with the likes of Bitcoin depreciating by over 40%. The price of the cryptocurrency was as low as $5947.40 on February 6 but has since risen to over $11000 over the next few days.

Remarkably the Red Wings (24-25-9, 57 points) are seven points behind the Carolina Hurricanes and New York Islanders in the race for the second wild card into the Stanley Cup Playoffs from the Eastern Conference. Red Wings D Mike Green, the subject of much trade speculation, sat out the game with an upper-body injury. He has put a record of 72-58-20 with 13 shutouts in 166 career games. But the price went up just a tad from the last time the Flyers were interested. He was drafted 141st overall by the Red Wings back in 2010.

It appears Philadelphia has found their answer at goaltender for the stretch run, as with Brian Elliott (lower body) sidelined for another 4-to-5 weeks and Michal Neuvirth (lower body) injured in Sunday's 7-4 victory over the Rangers, the position was a very big question mark.

Mrazek is in the final year of his contract.

Mrazek will be a free agent after the season.
