In Carolina’s 4-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, Hurricanes netminder Cam Ward was credited with a goal after an errant pass from Ilya Kovalchuk to Adam Henrique scooted down the ice and into the Devils’ empty net. Since Ward was the last member of the Hurricanes to touch the puck, he [...]

The last Carolina player to touch the puck.
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...
The month of December has been quite a ride for Cam Ward. He's been pulled in two games, has given up three or more goals in all but three games and has a save percentage of .882. On the flip-side, he also played two of his best games of the season against Toronto and Vancouver and has shown signs of looking like his older self. And people wonder why I never try to predict goalie...
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.
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...
With 29 seconds left in the third period, the Carolina Hurricanes took a leap with a 4-2 lead, Monday night against the New Jersey Devils.
The only problem, however, is that Ilya Kovalchuk of the New Jersey Devils is to blame, after a wide pass in the Carolina zone sailed the length of the ice and into the empty New Jersey net.
And, Cam Ward, goalie of the Hurricanes...
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) Cam Ward made 23 saves and was credited with a bizarre empty-net goal, leading the Carolina Hurricanes
past the New Jersey Devils 4-2 on Monday night.

New Jersey Devils forward Ilya Kovalchuk was given a 15-year, $100 million contract before last season to put pucks in the back of the net. Down 3-2 late in Monday night's game against the Carolina Hurricanes the Devils pulled their goalie in hopes of getting a goal. As it turns out Kovalchuk did score a late goal, but not in the way that the Devils were looking for as he passed...
When I saw the scoresheet for yesterday's Devils/Hurricanes game, I mostly ran around in circles yelling "Goalie goal!" over and over again. For fans of novelty highlights, goalie goals are up there with unassisted triple plays as one of the rarest and most valuable sporting occurrences. More »
