  • Raanta stopped 29 of 32 shots in Saturday's loss to the Penguins. The Coyotes only put 15 shots on Penguins' netminder Matt Murray, so it's hard to fault Raanta for Saturday's loss. The 28-year-old has dropped three straight games, but he's played well in each of them and boosted his save percentage to .918 in the process. Raanta won't pick up many victories or shutouts due to the team's overall struggles, but if you're looking for quality rate stats, the Yotes' starting netminder has plenty to offer.

  • Raanta will protect the net Saturday as the home starter versus the Penguins, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. When you consider that the 'Yotes have the youngest team in the league and the fewest points (19) in the standings, Raanta's stats this season look respectable. He's worked his way past upper-body ailments to go 4-7-2 along with a 2.79 GAA and .919 save percentage through 15 appearances. Raanta will try to secure that elusive fifth win Saturday against a Penguins team that has dropped three straight decisions and is 5-5-0 in the last 10.

  • Coyotes' Antti Raanta: Peppered by Lightning

    Raanta allowed four goals on 44 shots in a 4-1 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday. A 44-save performance is no joke, but it's tough to beat one of the best teams in the league when they put four pucks in the net. Raanta also played well in his only other start since returning from injury -- a one-goal, 33-save victory in Columbus -- but the Coyotes are so bad in so many categories (last in goals against, 30th in goals scored, last in league standings) that we can't justifiably recommend him in most settings.

  • Raanta will guard the cage for Thursday' tilt versus Tampa Bay, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports. Raanta is coming off a solid, 33-save performance in which he gave up just one goal, but still walked away with the loss due to a lack of offensive support. Coming into the season, the Finn was a lock for the No. 1 job; however, injuries led to the acquisition of Scott Wedgewood -- who will now compete with Raanta to be the starting netminder for new coach Rick Tocchet. For now, it appears Raanta has the inside track on the role, yet don't be surprised to see more of a two-headed monster moving forward.

  • Coyotes' Antti Raanta: Yields one goal in loss
    By RotoWire Staff

    Raanta allowed just one goal on 34 shots, but it wasn't enough, as the Blue Jackets defeated the Coyotes, 1-0, on Saturday. Failing to record a victory after such a dominating effort is very disappointing, but owners still have to love Raanta's performance Saturday, which was his first since Nov. 22 because of an upper-body injury. Raanta was hot just before getting injured, so he's now stopped 69 of the last 71 shots he's faced. His game Saturday appears to indicate Raanta will be able to pick up right where he left off before Thanksgiving.
