from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,
“If you look at our season last year, towards the end of the season, we were fighting for our playoff lives,” said Hurricanes’ goaltender Cam Ward. “You’d hate to look back at your early season, thinking or wishing that you’d had a better game here or there. Every game is huge. It’s not just all about the second half or the last week, trying to get into the playoffs. It’s about what you do the entire season that really matters.
“To get off to a great start, it does help the confidence of the team.”
Ward, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner in the ‘06 playoffs and the reigning player-of-the-week, is undefeated in regulation thus far.
“Right from Day One in training camp, you could definitely see the guys were a lot more excited and a lot hungrier,” he said.
