Cam Ward of the Carolina Hurricanes became the first goaltender to score in nearly six years Monday night.
Ward was credited with a rare tally by a goaltender when a pass from New Jersey's Ilya Kovalchuk went the length of the ice and into an empty net.
It was the first goal by a netminder since Columbus' Chris Mason tallied for Nashville in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes...
Last night in the Devils first game since returning from their two day Christmas break, they put out an abysmal effort vs a Carolina Hurricanes team that is less than spectacular. They were not the most talented team in the NHL to begin with, so having Jeff Skinner out with a concussion doesn't exactly help. Despite that, the Hurricanes carried the play for about 45 minutes of...
Sidney Crosby's hockey future remains in doubt. Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said on Wednesday that Crosby continues to experience post-concussion symptoms following light exercise and still has no timeline to return to the ice. Crosby has not skated since he left the Penguins game on Dec. 5 against the Bruins after colliding with teammate Chris Kunitz. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette...
Goaltender Cam Ward was the toast of Consol Energy Center early Tuesday, and he didn't even start for the Carolina Hurricanes later in the evening against the Penguins. "We were kind of joking that I should be on the power play," said Ward, who a night earlier became the 10th goaltender in NHL history to record -- or, in this case, be credited with -- a goal.

Carolina Hurricanes (12-19-6, 30 points) at Pittsburgh Penguins (20-11-4, 44 points)
Cam Ward is not good enough to have such a bizarre signature. I see the "30", but what the heck is up with the rest?
Why does it matter?
The Pens want to come out after the Christmas break with the same level of success as they...
RALEIGH — To add insult to a convincing road defeat, the Devils allowed the opposing goalie to “score.”
Cam Ward made 23 saves and was credited with a bizarre empty-net goal, leading the Hurricanes past the Devils 4-2 last night.
Ward’s first career goal came at the end of a...
Brandon Sutter scored a short-handed goal and was credited with a bizarre empty-netter, leading the Carolina Hurricanes past the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Monday night.
Tuomo Ruutu and Anthony Stewart scored in the second period, and Tim Gleason and Tim Brent each had two assists for the Hurricanes.
Sutter's empty-net goal came at the end of a strange sequence. Ilya Kovalchuk...

Jordan Staal, seen here, will play in his 400th NHL game Tuesday night. Staal left defenseman Matt Niskanen in the dust during this scoring rush Monday at practice.
Coach Dan Bylsma says that Marc-Andre Fleury sprawling out during the shootout, will start and ev...
