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.
