Goalie nods: Raanta makes first start in over a month

All the latest from the blue paint…

It’s Antti time

Chicago will start Antti Raanta tonight — and for the foreseeable future — when it takes on St. Louis at the United Center.

Raanta, who hasn’t started a game since Oct. 25, is getting the nod after Corey Crawford suffered a foot injury while tripping on stairs at a concert (yes, seriously.) As you’d expect, Raanta’s numbers on the year are limited — 1-2-0, .933 save percentage and 2.03 GAA in 177 minutes of work — but he’ll have a chance to increase those in the coming games, as Crawford is expected to be out 2-3 weeks.

For the Blues, Jake Allen will get the start in goal.
