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 think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
