Cam Ward didn’t have much fun in Montreal on Monday night. Not only did Ward and the Carolina Hurricanes leave with a loss to the Canadiens, Ward suffered a pretty embarrassing moment in the process. With the Habs already leading 2-0 late in the third, Ward gave up arguably the worst goal of the season. Montreal forward Max Pacioretty carried the puck into the neutral zone and just as he approached the red line, he dumped the puck into the attacking zone. It was far from a harmless dump-in, too, as the puck took a weird bounce right in front of the net. Making matters worse was the fact that Ward misplaced the puck and allowing the goal to make it 3-0. See the goal below.

Cam Ward allows goal from behind the red line

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty has had a rough start to the season.  He had to have an emergency appendectomy, was allegedly bitten by Mikhail Grabovsky and then endured a laceration to his ribs from a skate.  Pacrioretty had been unable to find the back of the net this year until fate gave him a lucky bounce. Late in the 3rd period he dumped a puck in from just behind...

Cam Ward lets in the “whoops” goal of the night (VIDEO)

As they say in baseball, a bleeder through the infield will show up as a line drive in the scorebook.  This goal by Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty will show up as a wicked wrist in the book…at least that’s how Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward will want it to appear. Pacioretty will embellish the story and tell his grandkids that he scored from inside his team’s blue line.  Except...

The second line is in good hands with Jordan Staal

Some unfortunate news came earlier today when the Hurricanes announced that Jeff Skinner wasn't feeling well at practice today and would not be traveling with the team to Montreal for tomorrow's game. This will leave three key players out of the lineup with Tim Gleason and Joni Pitkanen also injured but that's hopefully only a short-term concern. More people are worried...

Hurricanes Prospect Update 2/11 - 2/17

Big offensive performances are somewhat common in junior hockey and you'll often see more than a few players record at least a point in every game they played in a given week. We've seen this a few times with the Hurricanes CHL prospects this year as both Ryan Murphy and Brock McGinn have put together some impressive offensive weeks over their career but none of their recent...

Game 14 Scoring Chances: Hurricanes at Canadiens

Thanks to a plethora of injuries, the Hurricanes went into last night's game short on talent and forward depth and came away with their worst offensive performance of the season. Carolina's injury depleted lineup created only nine even strength scoring chances, four of which coming in the final two minutes of the second period, and eleven overall. Both are season lows for...

Jeff Skinner Out With A Concussion

via Chip Alexander of Canes Now, Canes forward Jeff Skinner has sustained a concussion and will be sidelined indefinitely, the team has announced. Skinner, the team's second-leading scorer, missed 16 games last season because of a concussion. He was injured Thursday during the Canes' game with the Toronto Maple Leafs, taking a couple of hard hits and once going helmet...

Depleted Hurricanes lineup falls short in Montreal

There weren't a lot of Hurricanes fans who were expecting the team to win tonight given the roster they were dressing. It's hard to expect much when your team is missing three top players along with one of their key special teams contributors. When said players are being replaced with guys from the AHL (one of which was jetted to the game on the same day), it was very important...

Max Pacioretty scores first goal on dump-in from center ice (Video)

Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty scored his first goal of the season in the most unusual way possible, a dump-in from center ice, during the third period of Monday's game against the Carolina Hurricanes. Pacioretty's dump-in from the left wing somehow made it past Hurricanes goalie Cam Ward, just 18 seconds after Pacioretty recorded an assist on a goal from teammate...

Hurricanes win streak snapped vs. Canadiens

MONTREAL (AP) -- Michel Therrien's lessons about finishing off games appear to be paying off for the Canadiens. Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty scored 18 seconds apart in the third period to seal Montreal's fourth straight win, a 3-0 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Monday night. Pacioretty added an assist and Brandon Prust also scored for Montreal in the third...
