The view from New York - LA Kings Insider


Antti Raanta earns fourth shutout as Rangers beat Kings

“Raanta came into the game 2-0-1 against the Kings, with a 1.97 goals-against average and .927 save percentage. He had allowed one goal or fewer in two of his three appearances against them. Quick had allowed two or fewer goals in seven straight, so a tight match wasn’t unexpected.”

Antti Raanta shines before handing keys back to Lundqvist

“This was Antti Raanta, superb in turning in a 30-save shutout in the Blueshirts’ 3-0 victory over the Kings here Saturday in his eighth straight start in Henrik Lundqvist’s absence, one night before the franchise goaltender makes his return to the nets in Anaheim.”

Rangers have mixed feelings about old Stanley Cup memories

“It isn’t as if this were the Blueshirts’ first trip back here since Alec Martinez stuck the Game 5 double-overtime dagger into the club’s collective heart, but memories do linger. ‘I kind of have a mixture of pride and disappointment if I think back on it, which I absolutely do,’ the 30-year-old Staal said. ‘Knowing how much it takes, I have pride in what we accomplished to get there. I have an appreciation for that.'”

“Raanta had a .901 save percentage and a 2-3-2 mark in his last seven starts, impacted by the Rangers giving up nine power-play goals during that stretch. But he was sharp all night while making 24 stops over the final two periods, and now in 26 starts this season he’s 16-6-2 with a 2.13 goals against average and .927 save percentage.”

Rangers crumble Kings castle

“The visitors needed only one goal to win — Derek Stepan’s — but Ryan McDonagh scored on one of the two power plays. In this case, one out of two wasn’t too bad. But three out of three on the penalty kill was even better.”
