Raanta proves ready for top role in Hurricanes' playoff push

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Antti Raanta stayed ready, even while spending most of a season backing up one of the NHL's top goalies. He's critical now for the Carolina Hurricanes as they advance in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Pressed into duty with No. 1 goaltender Frederik Andersen injured, Raanta was the defensive anchor for the Hurricanes' first-round series with the Boston Bruins. He was strong again in net for Saturday's clinching Game 7 victory, another sign that the Hurricanes' offseason bet on an overhaul at the position has paid off.

"When Freddy got hurt, it was kind of like, `OK, now it's a chance for me to show what I can do in the big stages,'" Raanta said after the 3-2 win. "Starting from Game 1, I think my game was pretty good."
