  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Steady presence in clinching win

    Raanta made 27 saves Saturday in a 3-2 series-clinching Game 7 win over the Bruins in their Eastern Conference First Round series.

    Jake DeBrusk beat him from the slot in the second to cut Carolina's lead to 2-1 and David Pastrnak put a one-timer past Raanta with 22 seconds left. Raanta has made Canes fans say, "Freddie who?" with his focused play in Round 1. Frederik Andersen (lower body) may return in Round 2 against either the Rangers or Penguins, but if not, Raanta has proven more than capable of filling in effectively.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Starting Game 7

    Raanta will start Game 7 on Saturday against visiting Boston.

    With Frederik Andersen (lower body) still sidelined, Raanta will make his sixth appearance of the series. The 33-year-old netminder has produced a tidy .926 save percentage and 2.46 GAA in Round 1, so he and the Hurricanes should be in a solid position to advance to Round 2 as home-ice favorites against the Bruins in Game 7.

    Raanta stopped 29 of 33 shots in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Bruins.

    Raanta allowed two goals in both the second and third periods as Carolina failed to close out the series in Game 6. Still, the 33-year-old netminder has had a strong series with a .926 save percentage. With Frederik Andersen's (lower body) status still uncertain, Raanta will likely be back in goal for Saturday's Game 7.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Making road start

    Raanta will guard the road goal during Thursday's Game 6 versus Boston, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

    Raanta was fantastic in Tuesday's Game 5, turning aside 33 of 34 shots en route to a convincing 5-1 victory. The 33-year-old netminder will try to help the Hurricanes advance past the Bruins into the second round by shooting for his third win of the postseason Thursday.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Bounces back in Game 5

    Raanta made 33 saves in Tuesday's 5-1 Game 5 win over the Bruins.

    Raanta replicated his performance from the series opener, in which he made 35 stops en route to a 5-1 win. The Hurricanes improved to 3-0 at home in this series. They can advance to the second round if they get their first road win in Thursday's Game 6, and Raanta's likely to start that one given the lack of recent updates from Carolina on Frederik Andersen's (undisclosed) status.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Starting second straight

    Raanta will patrol the home crease during Tuesday's Game 5 against Boston.

    Raanta wasn't great in Sunday's Game 4 versus the Bruins, surrendering four goals on just 27 shots en route to a 5-2 loss. The 32-year-old Finn will try to shake off that poor performance and shoot for his second win of the postseason in a rematch with the same Boston squad Tuesday.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Takes loss in Game 4

    Raanta allowed four goals on 27 shots in Sunday's 5-2 Game 4 loss to the Bruins. Boston's fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Raanta was victimized by a tough no-call on Boston's second goal late in the second period. The play was almost a carbon copy of a Carolina goal that was waved off for goalie interference earlier in the series, but a Hurricanes challenge proved fruitless. With momentum and another power play to boot, the Bruins proceeded to pull away with three unanswered goals in the third. Raanta had allowed only one goal in three-plus periods of action prior to this game, so he's the favorite to start Game 5 at home Tuesday unless Frederik Andersen's ready to return from an undisclosed injury.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: In net for Game 4

    Raanta will start Sunday's Game 4 in Boston, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.

    He sustained an upper-body injury in Game 2 on Wednesday and dressed as the backup behind Pyotr Kochetkov for Friday's Game 3 loss, but Raanta's healthy enough to retake the starting role and will look to help the Hurricanes take a commanding 3-1 series lead against the Bruins. The Finnish netminder has stopped 41 of the 42 shots he's faced this postseason.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Set to back up

    Raanta (upper body) will serve as Pyotr Kochetkov's backup in Friday's Game 3 against the Bruins, Luke DeCock of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.

    Raanta is still feeling the effects of the hit he took from Boston's David Pastrnak which knocked him out of Wednesday's Game 2 against the Bruins, but he's evidently doing well enough to serve as Kochetkov's backup Friday. It wouldn't be surprising to see Raanta get the starting nod for Sunday's Game 4.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Won't return due to upper-body injury

    Raanta has been officially ruled out for the rest of Wednesday's Game 2 matchup with Boston due to an upper-body injury.

    Raanta -- who was hurt as the result of a collision with Bruins winger David Pastrnak -- was replaced in the crease by Pyotr Kochetkov. The Canes could find themselves in danger of missing both Raanta and Frederik Andersen (undisclosed) heading into Game 3.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: On track to start

    Per Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic, Raanta was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll get the start in goal at home in Wednesday's Game 2 versus Boston.

    Raanta was fantastic in Monday's Game 1 against the Bruins, turning aside 35 of 36 shots en route to a convincing 5-1 win. He'll try to help his team maintain home-ice advantage by securing a second straight win over the same Boston squad Wednesday.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Starting Game 1

    Raanta will be between the home pipes for Monday's Game 1 clash with Boston, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.

    The decision to start Raanta shouldn't come as a surprise after Frederik Andersen (undisclosed) was ruled out for Game 1. It will be the 32-year-old Raanta's first career playoff start after having featured exclusively in relief for his prior five postseason appearances.

  • Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Stops 35 in series-opening win

    Raanta allowed just one goal on 36 shots in Monday's 5-1 win over Boston.

    Raanta was nearly perfect in his first career playoff start. A third-period goal from Taylor Hall was the lone blemish for the 32-year-old netminder as he earned the win despite Boston out-shooting Carolina 36-25. Raanta should be back between the pipes on Wednesday if Frederik Andersen (undisclosed) remains sidelined.
