Canes coach Kirk Muller is very happy with the play of Cam Ward.
Carolina will score enough to win most games, so Ward remains the big x-factor for this team. Thus far, he's had a rough year, but he's been very solid over his last three starts, allowing six goals altogether. "He's focused right now," Muller said. "When he plays like that he's up there with the elite goalies. He was competing tonight. I thought he was mentally prepared. He had three solid periods."
