|January 4, 2014: Preds' Mazanec Gets Starting Nod Saturday|
Mazanec will start in goal Saturday against the Panthers, Joshua Cooper of the Tennessean reports.This makes four consecutive starts for Mazanec who appears to have wrestled the starting job away from fellow backup Carter Hutton, at least for the time being.
