When Cam Ward missed the last 27 games of the 2012-13 NHL season with a sprained MCL, the Carolina Hurricanes went out to shore up their goaltending by adding Anton Khudobin to a mix that already included Justin Peters.
When Ward went down again last season in October (missed 10 games) and in January (missed 13 games), the Hurricanes were better covered in net.
Ward's October injury coincided with Khudobin being sidelined for 32 games with a lower-body injury. Peters went 4-6-0 with a 2.35 goals-against average and .921 save percentage during that time. When January hit, and the Hurricanes were hovering around the bottom of the standings, Khudobin took charge.
