Canes' Ward Strong In Goalie Duel, But Takes Loss

News: Cam Ward came out on the losing end of a goaltending battle with Detroit's Petr Mrazek on Saturday night. He made 27 saves and allowed just a single goal in a 2-0 loss.
Analysis: Cam Ward was so good he earned the game's second star behind only Mrazek. It's been a tough season for Ward and the Canes. He's just 30, but there have been more than enough murmurs that his best passed him by several years ago. We do know the Canes will be bad again next season, so he's not a great target.

Hurricanes To Start Ward On Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the crease for Saturday's season finale against the Red Wings.
Analysis: After leading the Hurricanes to a 3-1 victory over the Flyers on Thursday, Cam Ward will have get another chance at replicating that performance and evening his record at .500 for the season. Ward previously faced the Red Wings on Dec. 7, conceding three goals on 22 shots in a loss.

Ward, 'Canes Get Past Philadelphia

News: Cam Ward stopped 27 of 28 in Thursday's win over the Flyers.
Analysis: A triumphant return to the net for Cam Ward, who'd given up 10 goals over his prior three outings. He's beaten the Flyers twice in a six-day span, so that's something. It's yet to be determined whether Ward or Anton Khudobin will occupy the net in the Hurricanes' final game of the season, Saturday against Detroit.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Thursday

News: Cam Ward is slated to start Thursday's game against the Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who gave up four goals on 25 shots in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Sabres, will return to the Hurricanes' net Thursday against the Flyers (winners of two straight) after giving way to Anton Khudobin in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Detroit.

Canes' Ward Takes Loss To Sabres

News: Cam Ward surrendered four goals on 25 shot attempts in a 4-3 loss to the Sabres on Monday.
Analysis: It's somewhat surprising Cam Ward stayed in the game for the full 60 minutes, as the Hurricanes found themselves behind by a 4-0 count with under three minutes remaining in the second period. Rather than calling for backup Anton Khudobin, coach Bill Peters stuck with Ward and watched as the 'Canes nearly completed a furious comeback, trimming the deficit to one goal with 5:22 left to go. But they ultimately fell short, which amounted to a poor outing for Ward in what should have been a winnable game against the league's worst team. He's now 21-23-5 with a 2.46 GAA and .908 save percentage.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Monday

News: Cam Ward will start Monday's game against the Sabres, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward -- who stopped 21 of 23 shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over Philadelphia -- will take aim Monday against a Buffalo squad that has dropped two straight game and remains in last place in the NHL standings with 52 points.

Third Win In Last Four Starts For Canes' Ward

News: Cam Ward stopped 21 of 23 shots in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over Philadelphia.
Analysis: With the victory, Cam Ward has now won three of his last four starts and is up to 21 on the season. His save percentage (.909) and GAA (2.43) have actually been better than his career marks of .910 and 2.73, so the veteran netminder has quietly found a way to produce when called upon for the lowly Hurricanes.

Hurricanes' Ward Getting Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the cage for Saturday's matinee affair against the Flyers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward has rather porous career marks against the Flyers, going 7-10-3 with a 2.94 GAA and .897 save percentage over 21 appearances. His numbers have been slightly better on the whole this season, but he's not an attractive target in daily formats Saturday, despite the 'Canes matchup with another non-contending playoff team.

Ward Stops Only 16 As 'Canes Lose

News: The Capitals took only 20 shots against Cam Ward on Tuesday, but he let four of them through to take a 4-2 loss.
Analysis: Things had been looking up recently for Cam Ward, as he'd given up just four goals in three starts prior to Tuesday's game, but the inconsistency that's plagued the Hurricanes' roster nearly from top to bottom got to him again. The cellar-dwelling 'Canes are just playing out the string at this point, so it's not easy to trust either Ward or Anton Khudobin on any given night.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Tuesday

News: Cam Ward will be the starter in goal for Tuesday's game against the Caps, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who has won both of his starts since returning from a bout with the flu, seems to be coach Bill Peters' preferred netminder at the moment, but that won't make him a strong option in net most nights. With pedestrian ratios (2.40 GAA, .911 save percentage) and a sub-.500 record, it's best to avoid using Ward against average to above-average squads like the Capitals.

Ward Guide 'Canes To Win Column

News: Cam Ward turned away 21 of 22 shots in Saturday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: In a game between two the league's weakest scoring attacks, there predictably wasn't much offense to be found as the teams combined for four goals and 54 shot attempts. Cam Ward was just a bit sharper than opposing netminder Keith Kinkaid, earning the Carolina goalie his second win in two starts since returning from a bout with the flu. Coach Bill Peters is set to go with Anton Khudobin as the starter Sunday versus the Bruins, but Ward's solid showings his last two times out might put him on the inside track to finish the year as the Hurricanes' No. 1 netminder.

Canes' Ward To Start In Net Saturday

News: Cam Ward will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Penguins, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes will go back to Cam Ward for a second straight game after he stopped 27 shots in Thursday's upset 5-2 victory over the Penguins. Coach Bill Peters has generally embraced a timeshare between Ward and Anton Khudobin, and seems unlikely to deviate from those plans over the final two weeks of the season. Ward's 2.43 GAA and .910 save percentage have been passable this season, but with the Hurricanes headed for a sub-.500 finish, the victories don't figure to trickle in for either of the team's goalies on a regular basis.

Ward Stops 27 As Hurricanes Blow Out Penguins

News: Cam Ward saved 27 of 29 shots Thursday in a 5-2 rout of the Penguins.
Analysis: He almost had his second consecutive one-goal outing, but had just a little of the shine taken off his stats thanks to a late-third-period Ian Cole goal. Wins remains few and far between for Cam Ward, and even his hot streaks have been unreliable, as he's had an unfortunate tendency to put together a few good games in a row, then take a step back.

Canes' Ward Back In Net Thursday

News: Cam Ward (illness) will return to the net Thursday against the Penguins, Chantel McCabe of FOX Sports Carolinas reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward sat out the last five games in favor of Anton Khudobin while battling the flu. The illness never prevented Ward from serving as the backup goalie, but the Hurricanes obviously preferred not to press him into duty while he was less than 100 percent healthy. The Hurricanes had been employing a rough timeshare in goal prior to Ward's absence, and that figures to remain the case yet again, even after Khudobin turned in a handful of quality outings his last few times out. No matter who gets the call on a given night, both Ward and Khudobin will remain low-upside options due to the lack of offensive support they typically receive.

Hurricanes' Ward Returns To Practice

News: Cam Ward (illness) returned to practice Friday, NHL.com's Michael Smith reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward has been healthy enough to serve as a backup, and he may now be ready to actually start. Carolina's next game is scheduled for Saturday against the Rangers.

Canes' Ward Still Feeling Ill

News: Coach Bill Peters relayed Wednesday that Cam Ward (illness) is still feeling sick.
Analysis: Cam Ward was able to serve as the backup goalie during Tuesday's loss to the Senators, but it's clear he's at less than full strength while he works his way back from the illness. He was absent from practice Wednesday, and as a result, Peters announced that Anton Khudobin would make a third straight start in goal for the Hurricanes.

Hurricanes' Ward Under The Weather

News: Cam Ward is under the weather as Tuesday's game against Ottawa approaches, according to NHL.com's Michael Smith.
Analysis: With Cam Ward not feeling well, Anton Khudobin is slated to start Tuesday's contest, with Ward thus a candidate to return to action Thursday against Montreal, health permitting. If Ward's condition fails to improve over the afternoon, the Hurricanes could recall a goalie from AHL Charlotte to serve as Khudobin's understudy Tuesday.

Canes' Ward To Draw Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward has been confirmed as the starter in goal Saturday against the Panthers, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Neither Cam Ward nor Anton Khudobin has played well of late, but coach Bill Peters will turn to his nominal No. 1 goalie with the hope that he can stumble into a decent performance. Ward has been much improved from a season earlier, but is still 18-20-5 with a 2.47 GAA and .909 save percentage over 43 games, making him no better than a middle-of-the-road fantasy option.

Canes' Ward: 20 Saves In Loss

News: Cam Ward made 20 saves in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Panthers. He allowed just a single goal.
Analysis: It was his best performance of his last five games, but it just wasn't enough. Cam Ward is a long-time removed from his so-called elite years and should be considered a middle-to-low tier option next year.

Canes' Ward In Line To Start Saturday

News: Cam Ward is in line to start Saturday against the Panthers.
Analysis: The Hurricanes have received sketchy play in the net from both Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin of late, as the team has given up at least three goals in its last six games. Until one of the netminders turns a corner, look for coach Bill Peters to split the starts relatively evenly between the two goalies. Ward should have a decent chance at turning the tide Saturday, as the Panthers' attack isn't especially potent, ranking just 25th in the league in scoring. That being said, Ward's uninspiring performances over his last few outings hardly make him a reliable option.

'Canes, Ward Blow Lead, Lose In Shootout

News: Cam Ward stopped 29 of 32 shots, giving him an identical stat line to opposing netminder Sergei Bobrovsky, but took a 4-3 shootout loss Tuesday against the Jackets.
Analysis: Cam Ward had 2-0 and 3-1 leads, but he gave 'em up, although it's worth noting that all three tallies came with the Jackets on the man advantage. Still, they all count the same in the box score. Ward's given up 14 goals in his last four starts, so things haven't been going well for him lately even though he won two of those games.

Hurricanes Turn To Ward On Tuesday

News: Cam Ward is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Blue Jackets, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: Cam Ward, who backstopped the Hurricanes to a 7-4 win over the Oilers on Sunday, has allowed 11 goals over his last three starts, but overall he has earned wins in five of his last six turns.

Canes' Ward Shaky In Win

News: Cam Ward allowed four goals on 20 shots, but benefitted from his mates' offensive explosion as he picked up a 7-4 win over the Oilers on Sunday.
Analysis: It wasn't his best performance of late, but Cam Ward has won five of his last six starts. He and Anton Khudobin have been rotating starts since the middle of February, so this performance likely won't cause coach Bill Peters to break that pattern. While he has been collecting wins recently, Ward has surrendered 11 goals in his last three, so he's been helped out by a Carolina offense that's heating up lately.

Canes' Ward To Make Start Sunday

News: Cam Ward will be in the cage for Sunday's game against the Oilers.
Analysis: The announcement isn't a surprising one after Anton Khudobin floundered in Friday's loss to the Wild, yielding three goals on 19 shots. The Hurricanes seem to be embracing a timeshare between Cam Ward and Khudobin at the moment, with neither representing an enticing fantasy option on a consistent basis. For at least Sunday's game, though, Ward could be an intriguing play in daily formats, as the Oilers rank 28th in scoring and will be starting their backup netminder in Richard Bachman.

Canes' Ward Yanked In Loss

News: Cam Ward allowed four goals on 18 shots before being replaced after two periods in Monday's 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks.
Analysis: Cam Ward had been on a roll entering Monday's contest, having won four straight and six of his last seven. Though he had seemingly been turning a corner, most of those matchups didn't come against particularly dominating offenses. The loss drops Ward's record to just 17-20-4 on the season.
