ANALYSIS: In a bit of a surprise, the Hurricanes are apparently starting rookie Alex Nedeljkovic in net over veteran Petr Mrazek. That's not to say Nedeljkovic hasn't been terrific with a record 15-5-3 this season with a 1.90 goals-against average and .932 save percentage in 23 starts. The Canes finished with a 6-2-0 record against the Predators in the eight-game season series. Preds netminder Juuse Saros was 1-2-0 in his three series starts with a 2.73 GAA.
