Raanta will appear in back-to-back games for the first time since late January after putting together a 25-save winning effort over New York in Game 1. Despite the 33-year-old Finn starting Wednesday, he figures to remain on a relatively short leash, with Frederik Andersen waiting for an opportunity to start as well.
