Raanta gave up five goals on 27 shots in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Wild.
Raanta surrendered three goals on nine shots in the first period, and that was enough to decide the contest. The Finn dropped to 3-2-1 with a 3.83 GAA and an .896 save percentage in six appearances. Darcy Kuemper (lower body) was healthy enough to back up Raanta in Friday's game, and it seems like Kuemper is in line for the start in Saturday's rematch with the Wild.
Raanta will patrol the blue paint for Friday's home contest against the Wild, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Raanta is coming off his best performance of the season, stopping 40 of 42 shots in a win over the Kings on Wednesday. The 31-year-old owns a 3.60 GAA and a .907 save percentage in five appearances on the year. He'll face a Wild team that's scored at least four goals in five of their last seven games.
Raanta stopped 40 of 42 shots in a 3-2 win over the Kings on Wednesday.
Raanta had his hands full throughout the game, but he was up to the task to earn his third win in five games (3-1-1). The Finn lowered his GAA to 3.59 with a .907 save percentage. The lowest amount of shots Raanta has faced in a game this year is 34 -- should that volume eventually regress, Raanta's ratios should improve as he faces a lighter workload in games. The Coyotes' next two games are against the Wild on Friday and Saturday -- expect the 31-year-old goalie to split those contests with either Adin Hill or Darcy Kuemper (lower body).
Raanta will be between the pipes for Wednesday's road clash with Los Angeles, John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 FM reports.
Raanta will be making consecutive starts for the first time this season thanks to Darcy Kuemper's (lower body) continued absence. It's been a difficult start to the year for the 31-year-old Raanta, as he is sporting a 4.00 GAA and .895 save percentage in four games, though he has posted a 2-1-1 record.
Raanta yielded five goals on 40 shots in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.
Raanta had kept the Coyotes in it through two periods, as they trailed 2-1. He wasn't good enough in the third, leading to a lopsided loss. This was Raanta's first action since Feb. 13, as he missed two weeks with an upper-body injury. The Finnish netminder dipped to 2-1-1 with a 3.99 GAA and an .895 save percentage. Darcy Kuemper (lower body) isn't expected to be out long, so Raanta's time as the primary starter will likely be short.
Raanta will guard the home net in Saturday's game versus the Avalanche, John Gambadoro of 98.7 FM Phoenix reports.
With Darcy Kuemper (lower body) out, Raanta will make his first start since Feb. 13, while Adin Hill will serve as the backup. Raanta has been decent this season with a 2-0-1 record and a .902 save percentage. However, the matchup against the Avalanche, who are led by Nathan MacKinnon and Cale Makar, is a daunting test for the 31-year-old Raanta.
Raanta (upper body) will back up Adin Hill for Friday's game against the Avalanche, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Darcy Kuemper is dealing with a lower-body injury, so Raanta could be between the pipes for Saturday's rematch with Colorado. He's gone 2-0-1 while posting a 3.63 GAA and a .902 save percentage through three appearances this season.
Raanta (upper body) isn't expected to be in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Anaheim, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Although Raanta won't dress against the Ducks, he could be ready for Friday's clash with Colorado after logging a full practice Tuesday. The 31-year-old backstop has compiled a 2-0-1 record while posting a 3.63 GAA and a .902 save percentage in three appearances this season.
Raanta (upper body) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice, but his status for Wednesday's matchup versus the Ducks is uncertain, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Even though Raanta's made significant progress and is on the brink of getting the green light, head coach Rick Tocchet stopped short of fully clearing the 31-year-old netminder. If he's forced to sit out Wednesday, Adin Hill likely will serve as Darcy Kuemper's backup.
Raanta (upper body) won't suit up for Monday's game versus the Ducks, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Darcy Kuemper is expected to get the starting nod, while Adin Hill will serve as the backup. Raanta practiced Monday, but head coach Rick Tocchet doesn't have a clear timeline for Raanta's return to the lineup.
Raanta (upper body) won't suit up for Saturday's game versus the Kings, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
The Coyotes aren't expected to rush Raanta back into the lineup, as Adin Hill is more than capable of serving as the backup and even taking the occasional start. Nevertheless, Raanta's next opportunity to play is Monday versus the Ducks.
Raanta (upper body) will not dress for Thursday's game versus the Kings, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
It's unclear how Raanta suffered the injury, but it will keep him out of action for at least one game. Darcy Kuemper is already confirmed for the start, while Adin Hill will serve as the backup. More should be known on Raanta's status prior to Saturday's game versus the Kings.
Raanta yielded five goals on 34 shots in Saturday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Blues.
Raanta had a 4-3 lead to protect in the third period after Dryden Hunt scored his first as a Coyote. The Finnish goalie couldn't hang on, as Jordan Kyrou netted an equalizer and Mike Hoffman won the game for the Blues in overtime. Raanta slipped to 2-0-1 with 11 goals allowed on 111 shots in three appearances this season. At best, Raanta may split time with Darcy Kuemper, but the latter has played better to this point in the season, making Raanta more of "1B" goalie.
Raanta will start in the home crease Saturday versus the Blues.
Backup goalies will get the start on both sides of the ice, as Ville Husso will tend twine for the Blues. Raanta has started just two games this year, recording a .922 save percentage and notching wins over the Sharks and the Blues, who have averaged three goals per game against the Coyotes this season.

Raanta had a shutout going until Mike Hoffman scored at 16:45 of the third period. The Blues struck twice more after that, but Raanta held on long enough to get the win. The Finn has given up three goals in each of his two starts this season, both wins. The Coyotes were previously scheduled to continue their road trip with a back-to-back in Minnesota over the weekend, but due to the Wild's COVID-19 situation, those games were postponed. Instead, Raanta and the Coyotes will remain in St. Louis for two more contests Saturday and Monday. Expect Raanta and Darcy Kuemper to split the two newly rescheduled games.
Raanta will patrol the crease during Thursday's road matchup with the Blues, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Raanta has been limited to one game this season due to an undisclosed issue. The 31-year-old Finn was pretty solid in his lone appearance, stopping 31 of 34 shots en route to a 5-3 win over the Sharks on Jan. 16.

Raanta was sidelined for the past two games with an undisclosed issue, but has been cleared to return ahead of Thursday's game against the Ducks. The 31-year-old has seen just one start this season, stopping 31 of 34 shots in a 5-3 win over the Sharks. Now healthy, expect Raanta to return to back-up duties behind Darcy Kuemper with Adin Hill relegating to the No. 3 option.
Raanta (undisclosed) won't be in the lineup against Anaheim on Tuesday, Arizona Coyotes Insider Craig Morgan reports.
Previous reports indicated Raanta would be activated off injured reserve prior to Tuesday's tilt, but it appears the team will wait at least one more game to make that decision. Darcy Kuemper will get the start Tuesday while Adin Hill serves as the backup with Raanta still unavailable. Once cleared to play, Raanta should at least push Kuemper for playing time, though whether he can steal some starts away remains to be seen.

Raanta (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Friday, PuckPedia reports.
It's unclear why Raanta is on IR, but his destination will be backdated to Jan. 18, which means his next opportunity to play will be Tuesday against the Ducks. Adin Hill will serve as the primary backup for Darcy Kuemper for the time being.
