Cam Ward Keeps Playing

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer,

It remains possible, if not likely, that Cam Ward could play in all 48 of the Carolina Hurricanes’ remaining games, which would be a workload that is actually neither new to him nor historic for the franchise. He’s on pace to appear in 67 games but once played in 74, still three short of the franchise record.

“I think I could do it again,” Ward said Thursday. “I liked it.”

It may come to to that. As things stand, Ward is clearly the Hurricanes’ best option in net not only because of the way he has played since Nov. 1 – a 1.97 goals-against average and .927 save percentage – and his ability to handle the workload so far, but because the other options aren’t making the decision difficult.

Eddie Lack could return from the concussion that has knocked him out for six weeks at the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday, but it’s been so long since he has played that Hurricanes coach Bill Peters can’t even remember his last start.
