Carolina goalie Cam Ward makes 35 saves in AHL conditioning stint with Charlotte

CLEVELAND - Carolina Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward stopped 35 shots in his first conditioning stint with the AHL's Charlotte Checkers in a 1-0 loss to the Lake Erie Monsters on Friday.

Paul Carey scored for the Monsters (19-20-4) while Calvin Pickard stopped all 33 shots he faced to pick up the shutout.

Ward made a great save on a short-handed breakaway in the first period, stopped a two-on-one rush in the third, and made a flashy glove save down the stretch.

Ward became the ninth goalie to play for the Checkers (21-20-1) this season, marking the highest total in the AHL.
