Cam Ward’s save of the year candidate, robbing Joel Ward with glove (VIDEO)

The Carolina Hurricanes’ game against the Washington Capitals was kept close for the first 40 minutes for two reasons: “Cam” and “Ward.”

The Canes goalie stopped a dozen golden scoring chances for the Caps; but none of them were as spectacular as this glove save on Joel Ward at 8:57 of the second period:

To paraphrase Wilco: It’s a Ward on Ward.

That, friends, was a wide-open net. Ward’s lunging glove stopped the puck; video review confirmed that he kept it out of the net.

Heck of a save, but it’s going to be tough to knock Jake Allen off the save of the year throne.
