Ward initially was shaken up after Hurricanes defenseman Joe Corvo slid into him trying to defend Jack Skille's rush to the net, but stayed in the game.

Less than a minute later, Ward prepared to stop a shot from the point and went down when the puck was deflected away.

Ward, who stopped all 15 shots he faced as Carolina took a 3-0 lead, was replaced by Dan Ellis.

Eillis was scheduled to start the game but did not because he was not feeling well.

Quote of the Day

It's a little different but it feels amazing. A new chapter in my life and I'm excited. It's been amazing. Better than I expected. The weather is great, the place is just amazing. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad to get the season going.
