RECORD: 8-6-1
GAA: 2.93 | SVP: 0.905
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

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.

— Nashville captain Shea Weber in an interview with the Predators website
