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.

Hurricanes' Antti Raanta: Allows four in loss

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: 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: 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: 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.

David Pastrnak says there was no intent to injure Antti Raanta

Rarely, if ever, had David Pastrnak enter a scenario where he became public enemy No. 1 in an opposing building. Until Game 2 Wednesday night at PNC Arena. Pastrnak heard the chorus of boos from the Hurricanes faithful following a collision with goalie Antti Raanta during Boston’s second power-play attempt of the first period. The officials initially assessed Pastrnak a five-minute major for interference before downgrading his penalty to a two-minute minor.
