Ward made only 18 saves on 21 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Devils on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The Hurricanes have allowed the fewest shots on goal per game, but that can only take them so far if Ward is going to have performances like this. Though the 33-year-old has a 2.59 save percentage, his .911 save percentage is far from encouraging. It is also in line with his career save percentage (.909), so there is little reason to expect improvement.

Ward will be stationed between the pipes against the Devils, Andrew Gross of The Bergen Record reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 33-year-old veteran netminder has given up three or fewer goals in his last seven starts and 10 of his last 11. Ward has a 2.58 GAA and .912 save percentage on the season. He's not exactly an elite goaltender, but he can be started regularly in most fantasy formats.

Ward allowed two goals on 22 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Islanders on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran netminder played well, but he was simply outplayed by Thomas Greiss, which nobody thought possible heading into Friday. This one is a tough loss for Ward, but owners should find comfort in his .938 save percentage over his last seven games. If he continues this hot streak, Ward has a chance to post his best save percentage since 2011-12.

Ward will guard the home goal Friday against the Islanders, Chip Alexander of The Raleigh News & Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ward's night off Thursday ended in a disastrous showing from Scott Darling, who allowed five goals on 22 shots. Ward stakes his claim to the crease again Friday, riding a two-game winning streak into a matchup against an Islanders club averaging 3.07 goals per game (fifth in NHL) on the road this season.

Ward saved 27 of 30 shots during Tuesday's 7-3 win over Los Angeles.

EDGE Analysis

Taking home the win in a high-scoring affair mitigates Ward's mediocre performance Tuesday. He's sporting a 17-7-3 record, .912 save percentage and 2.60 GAA for the campaign, which makes him a matchup-based option in most fantasy settings. Additionally, considering the landscape at the goalie position, owners could do a lot worse than picking their spots with Ward over the coming weeks.

Ward will guard the cage versus Los Angeles on Tuesday, Kurt Dusterberg of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ward gave up just one goal on 30 shots against Colorado on Saturday and has been nearly unstoppable since taking over the starting job from Scott Darling (a 10-5-2 record in 18 outings). The veteran Ward was a heavy favorite to be moving at the trade deadline, however, the Canes have ridden him to a potential playoff spot, which means parting with him may wait until free agency begins in the offseason.

Ward turned away 29 of 30 shots in Saturday's win over Colorado.

EDGE Analysis

Ward has been playing very well of late and is now 4-1-1 in his last six starts. The veteran is locked into the starting role and is sporting a decent .913 save percentage. The 33-year-old is worth getting in your lineup right now, as the Hurricanes are battling for playoff position and Ward is finding a way to string together victories.

Ward will start in goal Saturday night, fielding shots from the visiting Avalanche.

EDGE Analysis

Ward graciously accepted that he would start this season out as the backup to Scott Darling after the ex-Blackhawk signed a four-year, $16.6 million contract with the Hurricanes, but the loyal veteran has long since reclaimed the No. 1 spot in Raleigh. Ward's impressive 15-7-3 record is supplemented by a 2.65 GAA and .910 save percentage -- decent numbers for a netminder working against the grain of his team's minus-17 goal differential. He'll field shots against an Avalanche squad that has been wildly inconsistent this season on the way to a 29-20-4 record and current sixth-place standing within the ultra-competitive Central Division.

Ward stopped 28 of 30 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Flyers.

EDGE Analysis

He nearly got the 'Canes to the shootout, but Jordan Weal was able to beat the veteran netminder with only 3.1 seconds left in the extra frame. Ward has impressively allowed only six goals in his last four games, posting a .947 save percentage over that stretch, but Carolina's sputtering offense has held him to just two wins in that stretch.

Ward will defend the cage against the Flyers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Ward will look to bounce back from his three-goal defeat at the hands of the Sharks on Sunday. Clearly, the Scott Darling experiment is over in Carolina, as coach Bill Peters continues to utilize Ward as the full-time starter. The Canes are just one-point out of a Wild Card spot, which decreases the chance they decide to part ways with the 33-year-old prior to the trade deadline.
