Cam Ward's efforts in the second period were key to Carolina's 3-2 win Thursday night against the Senators.

Ward was simply brilliant, making 16 saves as Carolina was outshot 17-3. "Cam's a great goaltender and he keeps us in games," said Jay Harrison, who banged home the deciding. "He's a huge part of our success and we owe that to him." Ward was shaky to start the year, but he's found his groove over the past two very busy games. He has made 86 of 89 saves in that span.
