Anderson Out For 2nd Round. Per NHL.com


Recommended Posts

Welcome to the NHL Buzz. Throughout the 2021-22 season, NHL.com will have you covered with the latest news.

 

Carolina Hurricanes

Frederik Andersen is doubtful to play for the Carolina Hurricanes against the New York Rangers during the Eastern Conference Second Round.

The goalie has not played since sustaining a lower-body injury April 16. Andersen has not practiced during the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but Carolina coach Rod Brind'Amour said he was hopeful Andersen could play at some point in the postseason.

The Hurricanes will host Game 1 of the best-of-7 series against the Rangers at PNC Arena on Wednesday (7 p.m. ET; ESPN, SNE, SNO, SNP, TVAS).

"I would hope so, especially if we can move on," Brind'Amour said. "Until he gets out there with us, you might as well stop asking me."

Antti Raanta had a 2.37 goals-against average and .927 save percentage in six first-round games against the Boston Bruins, including 27 saves in a 3-2 win in Game 7 on Saturday. He missed Game 3 because of an upper-body injury.

"[Raanta] is the guy," Brind'Amour said. "Until 'Freddy' even touches the ice, it's not even a conversation. Antti obviously has been great."
 

 

looks like Raants is our guy again. Let’s go!

I don't think we need him vs the Rangers but we will vs Tampa

I'm not sure about that. With Anderson out the Rangers have by far the best Goalie in the league. We can't give up 3 every game and hope to win.

Igor has been boarderline trash in round 1. We worked him last time we played him. Goalies don’t play other goalies. Raanta will be just fine.

Shesterkin is good...until he's not. Hit him with a goal early and the gates open. The longer he keeps the puck out of the net, the better he gets. But once you bust the cherry, it's fire at will, boys!

Love it

If we pelt Shesterkin with shots then we’ll be fine.

Raanta’a been solid, he has a .927 sv% through the first round and has been elite at home.

Kreider had an outlier season this year, the Rangers are another one line team without the same level of consistency or defensive play from sold line as the Bruins.... they have little depth Shesterkin has not settled in to playoff hockey he was out of position so many times in game 7 agaist the pens he had to have a rabbit's foot up his butt not to give up 8 or 9.
