Ward, 'Canes Quiet Leafs

News: Cam Ward stopped 25 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: The Leafs came into the game sporting the NHL's best offense, so it's quite an accomplishment for Cam Ward and the Hurricanes to step up and silence that Toronto attack. Unfortunately, Ward hasn't been able to maintain such a high level of play consistently -- Thursday's victory ended a four-game losing streak in which he'd posted three save marks of .875 or worse. Ward remains an unreliable, though surprisingly not terribly blowup-prone fantasy option in net.

Hurricanes' Ward Gets Thursday Nod

News: Cam Ward will be between the pipes for Thursday's game against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: Cam Ward will be looking to get back in the win column after losing four straight starts. That certainly will not come easy, however, with Carolina taking on a Toronto squad that currently leads the league with 3.45 goals per game.

Canes' Ward Stuck With Four Goals

News: Cam Ward was beaten four times on 29 shots in Tuesday's loss to Montreal.
Analysis: It's been tough times for Cam Ward lately, as he's lost four straight games and the 'Canes have supported him with exactly one goal in each of them. It can't just be chalked up to the lack of offense, though, as Ward has posted sub-.900 save marks in three of those four contests.

Hurricanes' Ward In Line For Tuesday Start

News: Cam Ward is on track to start Tuesday's game against the Canadiens, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice following Tuesday's morning skate, which lines him up to start Tuesday night. He will take on a Montreal squad that tallied nine goals over its last two games -- both victories -- after a stretch that saw them lose six of seven contests.

Canes' Ward Saves 25, Takes Loss To Tampa

News: Cam Ward delivered a solid game against the Lightning on Thursday, putting a stop to 25 of 27 shots, but ended up with a 2-1 loss.
Analysis: A tough one for Cam Ward, who had dueling shutouts going with Evgeni Nabokov entering the third period and appeared to be heading for at least an overtime point until Nikita Kucherov's goal with 31 seconds remaining untied it. Ward's all-too-brief hot streak now feels like it was a long time ago, as he's lost six of his last eight starts despite generally decent play.

'Canes Likely To Start Ward On Thursday

News: Cam Ward was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will likely be in net Thursday versus the Lightning.
Analysis: Though he's played poorly in back-to-back losses for the Hurricanes, Cam Ward has generally been a stable force for the team in goal this season, delivering a 2.49 GAA and .908 save percentage over 19 outings. Those aren't especially impressive numbers, and he's not receiving much goal support, but Ward's standing as the Hurricanes' clear No. 1 will at least allow him to pile up counting stats for fantasy owners.

Canes' Ward Stops 14 In Loss

News: Cam Ward stopped 14 of the 16 shots he faced in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Devils.
Analysis: It was Cam Ward's second loss in as many days as he was tabbed with the starting duties on both ends of a back-to-back, and though he wasn't heavily tested, Cory Schneider was superb for the Devils on the other end of the ice. His offense once again did him no favors, but he's now just 8-10-1 on the season with just middling statistics.

Canes' Ward Starting Monday

News: Cam Ward will start in net Monday night against the Devils, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward is coming off a loss in Sunday's game when he gave up three goals on 22 shots against the Red Wings. There are probably better goaltending options out there for Monday since goalies tend to struggle when playing both games of a back-to-back.

Canes' Ward (Lower Body) Starting Sunday

News: Cam Ward (lower body) will start between the pipes against the Red Wings on Sunday, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward's injury was not considered serious, and that was obviously the case as he will start in net Sunday. He stopped 32 of the 33 shots he faced Tuesday, and will carry a 2.48 GAA and .912 save percentage into Sunday's contest.

Canes' Ward Surrenders Three In Loss

News: Cam Ward made just 19 saves as he allowed three goals in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Red Wings.
Analysis: Cam Ward entered Sunday's contest with three straight performances of two goals or less, but the streak was broken as he fell under .500 to 8-9-1 on the season. He hasn't been great this year as he has a 2.51 GAA and a save percentage of .909, and the team's overall struggles will likely prevent him from picking up a lot of wins.

Hurricanes' Ward Not Dealing With Serious Setback

News: Cam Ward (lower body) is not believed to be dealing with a serious injury, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward is considered day-to-day with the setback, and the Hurricanes brought up his replacement on an emergency basis only, so he should not be out long. Consider him questionable for Carolina's next game Sunday against Detroit.

Hurricanes' Ward Dealing With Lower-Body Injury

News: Cam Ward will not play Thursday due to a lower-body injury.
Analysis: The extent of Cam Ward's injury is uncertain, but he did not practice Wednesday and was held out of Thursday's morning skate as well. Drew MacIntyre was recalled to add another goalie to the roster, but Anton Khudobin figures to be the primary goaltender until Ward is ready to return.

Canes' Ward Given Maintenance Day

News: Cam Ward was given Wednesday's practice off after he reported some general soreness.
Analysis: Cam Ward was just a little bit beat up after his impressive win over the Predators on Tuesday, so the day off looks to be just a maintenance day. The Hurricanes will check up on his condition Thursday morning, but if all is well, he'll make the start that evening against the Capitals.

Ward, 'Canes Down Preds

News: Cam Ward stopped 32 of 33 to deliver a 2-1 win over the Predators on Tuesday.
Analysis: Over his last two starts, Cam Ward has marched into Pittsburgh and won, and he's outdueled Pekka Rinne. But his game has been highly inconsistent this year, and the Hurricanes will need him to stabilize things to turn their season around.

Hurricanes' Ward To Face Predators Tuesday

News: Cam Ward will start Tuesday against the Predators, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: After resting in favor of Anton Khudobin against the Penguins on Saturday, Cam Ward will return to the crease and try to improve his 7-8-1 record on the season to date. He will also have to upgrade his peripheral stats (.907 save percentage, 2.57 GAA) if fantasy owners are to continue putting any kind of trust in him. Right now, he is a bottom-quartile fantasy goalie option at best. Use sparingly if at all possible.

Ward Paces Canes To Win Over Penguins

News: Cam Ward stopped 20 of 22 shots en route to a 4-2 upset win over the Penguins on Friday.
Analysis: The victory put an end to a three-game losing streak for both Cam Ward and the Canes, and brought Ward's record to 7-8-1 on the season. He should continue to see the majority of starts going forward over backup Anton Khudobin.

Cam Ward

Canes Going With Ward On Friday

News: Cam Ward will make the start in goal Friday versus the Penguins.
Analysis: It's the fifth straight start for Cam Ward, but that streak figures to come an end Saturday, when the Hurricanes are expected to turn to Anton Khudobin for the second half of their back-to-back. Though Ward has suffered losses in five of his last six outings, he's only sported a save percentage below .900 in two of those turns. That should be good enough to give him a decent level of job security over Khudobin.

Canes' Ward Gets No Offensive Support In Loss

News: Cam Ward stopped 28 of 29 shots Wednesday, but received no offensive support in a shutout loss to Florida.
Analysis: Tough break for Cam Ward, who did his best to try and earn just his second win in six games. While he was excellent Wednesday, Ward has still allowed three or more goals in three of his last four starts. The 30-year-old is now 6-8-1 this season with a 2.61 GAA and .907 save percentage. Judging by his superb play against the Panthers, Ward will get back into the win column soon.

Canes Start Ward Wednesday

News: Cam Ward will start in net Wednesday against the Panthers, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward allowed four goals on 35 shots Saturday against the Avalanche, leaving his record at 6-7-1 on the season. He also carries a .903 save percentage and 2.71 GAA with him, and has lost four of his past five games. Wednesday's matchup could be the cure to his woes, however, as he faces a low-scoring Panthers club.

Canes' Ward Gives Up Four In Loss

News: Cam Ward surrendered four goals on 35 shots in Saturday's loss to the Avalanche.
Analysis: It's hasn't been good times for Cam Ward fantasy owners, as the veteran has now lost four of his last five games. Ward is now 6-7-1 on the season with an unimpressive .903 save percentage and 2.71 GAA. While he is somewhat reliable, there are likely better options out there. Ward has been decent this season, but he won't pick up many wins due to the lackluster team in front of him.

Cam Ward

Canes' Ward Will Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward will start in net Saturday against the Avalanche.
Analysis: Cam Ward and the Hurricanes have been a pleasant surprise this season, despite the fact that he's allowed seven goals in his last two starts. He'll look to stop a struggling Avs team in Denver on Saturday.

Ward Stops 36, But 'Canes Lose

News: Cam Ward saved 36 of 39 in Thursday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: Cam Ward played better Thursday than he did in Tuesday's win, but ended up with his third loss in four games. Nonetheless, he's been putting up very strong rate stats since getting over his brutal start to the season and taking over the No. 1 goaltending job in Carolina.

11/19/2014

Cam Ward

Canes' Ward To Start Thursday

News: Cam Ward will start in goal Thursday against the Kings.
Analysis: Cam Ward got back in the win column Tuesday despite allowing four goals on 27 shots to the Stars, and he'll look to keep it going Thursday against a Kings team he held to two goals on 32 shots back on Nov. 2. It will mark Ward's ninth start in 11 games.

Canes' Ward Gives Up Four, Wins Anyway

News: Cam Ward allowed four goals on 27 shots, but got plenty of offensive support in Tuesday's 6-4 win over Dallas.
Analysis: After two good starts in a row that ended in losses, Cam Ward turned in one of his uglier efforts in a while, but won anyway. The four goals represent the most he's allowed since giving up five back on Oct. 23 in Calgary.

Hurricanes' Ward Will Start Against Stars

News: Cam Ward will be in goal for Tuesday's game against the Stars, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' website reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward lost his last two starts, but he has not given up more than two goals in any of his seven November starts. He will take on a Dallas squad that has won just two of its last 11 games.
