Raanta allowed a pair of goals on 27 shots during Saturday's 5-2 win at home over the Sabres.
With wins in back-to-back starts and four of his past five outings, Raanta is in a bit of a groove at the moment. The win over Buffalo improves his record to 14-13-3. Despite the return of Darcy Kuemper, Raanta's recent run of good form should be enough to earn him more action, so look for him to start at least one of Arizona's upcoming three games on the road.
Raanta will defend the blue paint during Saturday's home game versus the Sabres, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta has been razor sharp recently, posting a 3-1-0 record while maintaining an impressive 1.52 GAA and .958 save percentage through his last four appearances. The Finnish backstop will look to keep rolling in a favorable home matchup with a Buffalo team that's 10-17-4 on the road this year.
Raanta made 27 saves in a 7-3 win over the Lightning on Saturday.
Raanta has rung up a 3-1 record in his last four games and he's only allowed six goals in that span. He's picked the right time to warm up, what with Darcy Kuemper's return right around the corner. The big Finn will remain valuable even after Kuemper's return. Roll him when his blades touch the blue paint.
Raanta will get the home start against the Lightning on Saturday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta has been spectacular over the past three games, allowing three total goals on a combined 112 shots -- a .973 save percentage.

Raanta made a season-high 45 saves in Thursday's 1-0 loss to St. Louis.
Raanta was terrific once again for the Coyotes, who rewarded him with zero offensive support. St. Louis' Ryan O'Reilly broke a scoreless tie with eight minutes left in regulation to hang Raanta with the 'L.' Arizona's de facto No. 1 netminder in the absence of Darcy Kuemper (lower body), Raanta is sporting an outstanding .949 save percentage during the month of February. Raanta and the Coyotes open a three-game homestand Saturday against Tampa Bay.
Raanta will defend the cage for Thursday's road clash with St. Louis, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
In his previous four tilts, Raanta posted a 3-1-0 record, 1.76 GAA and .944 save percentage. The netminder should continue seeing the bulk of the starts until Darcy Kuemper (lower body) is cleared to return, at which point the pair figures to split the duties for the remainder of the year.
Raanta made 28 saves in Monday's 2-1 win over the Islanders.
The 30-year-old took a shutout into the third period before Anthony Beauvillier tipped home a point shot early in the frame for the Isles' only goal of the day. Raanta is now 13-13-2 on the season with a 2.70 GAA and .919 save percentage, and he should continue to hold down the No. 1 job for Arizona until Darcy Kuemper (lower body) is ready to return.
Raanta will be in goal at home versus the Islanders on Monday, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Raanta gave up just one goal in Saturday's clash with Washington. The netminder has faced 30 or more shots in all but one of his last seven outings, including a meeting with Anaheim in which he gave up four goals on 32 shots. The Finn figures to continue carrying the load while Darcy Kuemper (lower body) remains on the shelf.
Raanta stopped 36 of 37 shots in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Capitals.
Raanta continues to alternate good and bad outings -- this was one of the good ones, as he stymied a threatening Capitals offense. The Finn improved to 12-13-3 with a 2.76 GAA and a .917 save percentage in 29 appearances. He's allowed 10 goals over his last five starts, with a 3-2-0 record in that span. Raanta will likely be back in goal Monday against the Islanders unless Darcy Kuemper (lower body) is ready to return.
Raanta will defend the home net against the Capitals on Saturday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta has been a solid placeholder with Darcy Kuemper (lower body) on the mend, as the former has posted a 2-2-1 record with a .933 save percentage in February. This will be a tough task, however, as the Capitals lead the league with 3.68 goals per road contest.
Raanta stopped 28 of 31 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Senators.
Raanta allowed a pair of early goals in the first period, scored within four minutes of one another. The Coyotes netminder was looking to get to .500 on the season but instead will see his record fall to 11-13-3 following Thursday's loss. A home matchup with the Capitals awaits Thursday, a game Raanta could very well start, though Arizona has yet to announce its plan in goal for that contest.
Raanta will tend the twine Thursday versus the Senators in Ottawa, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta's claim to the starting role has declined slightly of late, with the netminder ceding two of the last three starts to Adin Hill. After a rough pair of starts to close the first half and open the second, Raanta has allowed two or fewer goals in three of his last four. He'll aim to keep that success rate up Thursday versus a Sens squad tallying just 2.13 goals per game since the All-Star break.
Raanta stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 3-2 win over Montreal on Monday.
Raanta needed this win badly. He'd lost five straight on the road and had only one win in his previous six starts. He's now 11-12-3 on the year, moving closer to .500. Raanta seems unlikely to start Tuesday night in Toronto on the second night of a back-to-back, but nothing has been announced as of yet.
Raanta (lower body) will start against the Canadiens on Monday, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Darcy Kuemper (lower body) was expected to start but sustained an injury (or aggravated the existing one) during Monday's morning skate. As a result, Raanta gets the nod now that he's over a lower-body injury. The 30-year-old Raanta has lost five straight road games while posting an .852 save percentage and 5.49 GAA. This is a tough matchup, too, as the Habs have won seven of the last nine.
Raanta was scratched from Saturday's planned start because of a lower-body injury, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Arizona started Adin Hill instead of Raanta. This news suggests Raanta could miss some time, which is unfortunate considering the Coyotes play back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday. Arizona may have to summon a replacement from the AHL in the coming days if Raanta's status doesn't improve in 24 hours.
Contrary to a previous report, Raanta won't start in Saturday's road game versus the Bruins, Craig Morgan of The Athletic reports.
Raanta led the team out for warmups, and it's unclear why he is no longer starting. Adin Hill will patrol the blue paint in this cross-conference clash.
Raanta will defend the road net Saturday versus the Bruins, Jack Edwards of NESN reports.
Darcy Kuemper (lower body) remains on injured reserve, so Raanta will make his fourth straight start. Raanta has been inconsistent over the past three, recording a 1-1-1 record. He'll have the tall task of slowing down the Bruins, who enter with a five-game winning streak.
Raanta yielded four goals on 30 shots in a 5-3 loss to the Hurricanes on Thursday.
Raanta wasn't able to build off a shutout versus the Oilers on Tuesday, reverting back to his recent struggles. The 30-year-old dropped to 10-12-3 with a 2.86 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 26 contests. The Finn has just one win in his last six starts, which makes him a risky play Saturday against the Atlantic Division-leading Bruins.
Raanta will defend the home cage in Thursday's matchup versus the Hurricanes, Alexander Kinkopf of the Coyotes' official website reports.
Raanta is coming off a 30-save shutout versus the Oilers and will make his third straight start Thursday. There's still no clear timeline on when Darcy Kuemper (lower body) will return to the lineup, as he was lifted from IR ahead of the All-Star break but reverted back afterward. For the time being, Raanta is the No. 1 netminder in Arizona, and he'll look to stay hot against the Hurricanes, who have scored three-plus goals in four straight contests.
Raanta posted a 30-save shutout in Tuesday's 3-0 win over the Oilers.
Raanta silenced a hot Oilers team with his second shutout of the season and the 13th of his career. The victory snapped a personal four-game (0-3-1) losing streak for the Finn, who is now 10-11-3 for the year. Raanta has a 2.80 GAA and a .917 save percentage in 25 games. The 30-year-old figures to start again Thursday versus the Hurricanes.
