Raanta stopped seven of the eight shots he faced in the opening 20 minutes and was not back on the ice following intermission. Pyotr Kochetkov took over in the Carolina net and helped backstop his team to a 6-3 victory.
Head coach Rod Brind'Amour told reporters after the game that Raanta was not dealing with a serious injury.
The 34-year-old came into Wednesday's game with a 2.88 goals-against average and a save percentage of .885.
The Hurricanes will be back in action at home on Friday against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
