Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov stood on his head and stopped 44 shots while registering his third shutout of the season on Thursday against Florida. Kochetkov's efforts helped the Hurricanes grab a 1-0 win, with Sebastian Aho providing the game-winner with 19 seconds left in regulation. The Russian netminder established a franchise record for most saves in a shutout by a rookie goaltender. Kochetkov has dropped only two of his last 11 decisions, improving to 15-9-3 for the year. He has allowed 2.37 goals with a .911 save percentage.
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov will be the starting goaltender for Tuesday's contest versus the visiting Vancouver Canucks. The young netminder has been out since Jan. 11 due to a concussion suffered in a crease collision versus the Anaheim Ducks. It's been a decent season for the 24-year-old who sports a 2.58 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage across 23 outings (21 starts), going 11-7-3 in that time. It's been a whirlwind between the pipes for the Hurricanes this season as Frederik Andersen has been out since Nov. 2 due to blood clots while veteran Antti Raanta has mostly struggled but was forced to start six of the Hurricanes' past seven games.
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov notched his fourth shutout of the campaign with a 19-save effort against Philadelphia on Thursday, backstopping his crew to a 1-0 victory. Andrei Svechnikov potted the lone goal with the man advantage early in the game. Kochetkov hadn't played in the big league since Jan. 15. He was an emergency call-up from the AHL Wednesday after Antti Raanta (undisclosed) hurt himself in Tuesday's victory over. The Hurricanes have been blessed with three in-form goalies this season, and Kochetkov has played his part in the team's success with an 11-4-5 record, giving up only 2.21 goals per game with a .917 save percentage. Raanta's injury isn't deemed to be serious, but Carolina has a back-to-back scheduled for the weekend, so we could see more of Kochetkov very soon.
Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov will guard the crease against Vancouver on Sunday. The Russian netminder is getting his 18th start of the year and will be looking to end a three-game losing streak. Kochetkov has suddenly gone cold after looking nearly unbeatable for a long stretch. He has a 10-4-4 record for the season and boasts a 2.30 goals-against average with a .914 save percentage and three shutouts. The Hurricanes are huge favorites for the contest, but this is a tough matchup for Kochetkov, as Vancouver is averaging 3.40 goals per game. He will be backed up by Antti Raanta, with Frederik Andersen getting a rest day after beating Pittsburgh 2-1 with 34 saves on Saturday.
