Notes and Quotes: Reaction from the Hurricanes’ 1-0 win over the Lightning

Here’s what Phil Di Giuseppe, Bill Peters, Cam Ward and Jeff Skinner had to say about Sunday’s win. From the Coach Bill Peters: It felt like the first goal was going to win, especially the way it unfolded in the third. Unfortunately we had to kill the back to backs, but good job by those guys and Ward stood tall. Real good response and good job on the back to back. These games are fine. [laughter] You have to stay with it. We’ve been in great positions lately. We were in a great position here. We’re on the power play with six minutes to go in a tie game, with a passionate fan base....

Recap: Hurricanes Oust Lightning in Overtime

Recap: Hurricanes Oust Lightning in Overtime

The home win streak continues, and the overall losing streak comes to an end. Phil Di Giuseppe scored 1:26 into the overtime period of a scoreless game between the Carolina Hurricanes and Tampa Bay Lightning to win the game 1-0 for the home team. In a game that did not feature either team’s best performance, the goalies certainly stole the show. Cam Ward won with a 30-save shutout, and the Lightning’s Ben Bishop came up just one save short at 29. The first period began the game slowly, with each team trading power play opportunities, but neither was able to gain any kind of sustained...

NHL scores 2016: Cam Ward’s streak was broken by one bad mistake

Cam Ward reverted back to being the Cam Ward of old at the worst time. For the last month, Ward has been as hot as they come in net. With a save percentage north of .939 in his last five games prior to Thursday, Ward was silencing critics left and right.

How Sustainable is Cam Ward's Recent Success?

Cam Ward has been in a groove lately. How long can he keep it up? After a slow start to the season, Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Cam Ward has caught fire in recent weeks. In his last five games, Ward has a sterling 1.00 goals-against average, a .962 save percentage, and has not given up a single point in the standings to the opposition. What’s even more impressive is that the teams he’s stymied included the league-leading Montreal Canadiens, the 2016 President’s Trophy-winning Washington Capitals, the defending Western Conference champion San Jose Sharks, and two offensively...

Friedman: Michael Leighton to the Olympics?; Cam Ward’s new gear and new strategy

Three of the 30 Thoughts this week concern the Hurricanes, so let’s take a look. For your pregame entertainment tonight, Elliotte Friedman did a deep dive onto the Canes goaltending in his 30 Thoughts column today, but in two very different contexts: First: Michael Leighton, Olympian? Michael Leighton is up with the Carolina Hurricanes as Eddie Lack recuperates from a concussion. Should the NHL not go, he’d be the kind of player in line for a shot on the Olympic team. “It would be awesome,” he said. “It’s the one thing I’ve never had a chance to do, play for Team Canada. But...

Cam Ward Named NHL’s Second Star of the Week

Wardo said NO a lot this past week and was recognized by the league for doing so. Three wins. One shutout. 1.01 goals-against average. .964 save percentage. That’s pretty darn good, and it was good enough to earn goaltender Cam Ward second star honors from the NHL for the week ending Sunday, Nov. 21. Perhaps more importantly, Ward’s stellar performance in net helped earn the Carolina Hurricanes four straight wins during their recent home stand, bumped their season record above .500 for the first time, and propelled them back into relevance during a critical juncture of the season. Ward...
