Cam Ward G CAR 9 Days

Ward stopped 34 of 36 in Thursday's 3-1 loss to the Jets.

So ends Ward's five-game winning streak, but this one can hardly be pinned on the goalie, who played very well again. He continues to right the ship after a horrid start to the year.

Coach Bill Peters confirmed after Wednesday's practice that Ward would get the start in goal Thursday against the Stars.

Ward has earned effusive praise from Peters over the last two weeks by reeling off five consecutive wins to finally bring his save percentage to an even .900 after a dismal start to the season. Even so, it seems like a prime opportunity to sell-high on Ward, given his poor overall ratios and the relatively weak offense supporting him, which makes his 5-3-1 record look rather unsustainable.

Ward recorded 22 saves in leading the way to a 4-1 victory over the Flames on Monday.

Make it five straight wins in net for Ward, as he improved his season record to 5-3-1. Along with a shaky start, a big concern with Ward appeared to be the lack of wins he'd pick up this year, but the team appears to have turned a corner with points in six straight. Ward's been great in November, allowing just seven goals in five games, all wins.

Ward will start between the pipes Monday against the Flames, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.

Ward has collected four straight wins for the Canes, and allowed just six goals over that span. He's now 4-3-1 on the season, and could be turning the corner in terms of fantasy value this season.

Ward made 29 saves on 31 shots for his fourth straight win Friday against Columbus.

After a slow start, Ward has now picked up four straight wins, allowing only six goals in that span. Ride him while he is hot, as even though he is Carolina's clear No.1 goalie, he won't be able to maintain this elite level of play for much longer.

Ward will be in the crease Friday against the Blue Jackets, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.

With wins in three straight contests, Ward seems to have established himself as the Hurricanes' top option in goal -- at least for as long as he remains hot. He'll attempt to keep the winning streak alive in a rematch with the Blue Jackets, who Ward limited to two goals on 19 shots in a 4-2 Carolina victory Tuesday.

Ward stopped 17 of 19 shots in Tuesday's victory over the Blue Jackets -- his third straight win.

While the victorious outcome is nice, Ward didn't offer fantasy owners any help in save percentage Tuesday, posting an .895 mark. Nonetheless, he's taken the reins as the top goalie in Carolina over Anton Khudobin and has only given up four goals over his three-game winning streak. But with how poorly Ward played last year and at the start of this year, it's hard to believe in this success being sustained for long.

Ward will start between the pipes Tuesday against the Blue Jackets, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Reporter reports.

Ward has been impressive in his last two starts, recording two wins and a shutout. He'll look to keep rolling Tuesday against a banged up Blue Jackets squad.

Ward made 30 saves on Sunday, as he helped lead the way to a 3-2 win over the Kings.

After Anton Khudobin got the call in net for four of the team's first seven contests, Ward has been between the pipes for each of the last three and has posted two wins int that span. The strong play in goal has seemingly earned him some more playing time, but with the team in front of him struggling to earn wins, Ward isn't among one of the better options for fantasy purposes.

Ward will start Sunday's game against Kings.

Ward helped Carolina win its first game of the season Friday against the Coyotes, and he'll make his second consecutive start Sunday. In Friday's victory, Ward stopped all 25 shots fired his way, but Carolina's deficiencies as a team will likely limit Ward's fantasy utility this season.
