A quick start
Who would’ve guessed that one of Antti Raanta’s most memorable moments would be in his first start for the New York Rangers? On October 19, 2015, Raanta made his debut for the Rangers in glorious fashion.
It was the Rangers seventh game of the regular season and Raanta was given the nod to start. The Rangers were playing the San Jose Sharks at Madison Square Garden and Raanta didn’t let the fans down. Raanta stopped all 22 shots that he faced and earned the #1 star of the game as well.
The Rangers went on to win the game by a score of 4-0. This was Raanta’s first game as a Ranger and it was only the first of many memorable moments that #32 gave to the New York Rangers and their fans.
