Many other players – some with great potential – walked away from the game. Not Joel Ward, though. Not even after hockey slapped him in the face. Not after a four-year junior career with the Owen Sound Attack of the OHL. Undrafted, but undaunted, Ward spent the next four years playing Canadian university hockey at the University of Prince Edward Island. Now there have been a...

The Sharks just took a big bite out of their negative playoff narratives.

The San Jose Sharks are swarming as Joel Ward gets in front of the net and tipped in a shot for a goal.
Joel Ward scored the Sharks' second goal in a way that only Joel Ward could have done; on the partial breakaway before pinballing the puck past Niemi.

Game 6 between the Washington Capitals and New York Rangers was, in my opinion, the best game of the series so far. Throughout the entire game there was a sense of a must-win scenario. Of course, the Rangers needed to win game 6 to stay in the playoffs, but there was also pressure on the Caps to eliminate the Rangers and prevent a game 7. Both teams put forth a tremendous effort...

Ward was coming off a regular season in which he scored 10 goals in 80 games. However, significantly, he also was the Nashville Predators' leading playoff scorer (both in goals with seven and points with 13 in 12 games) in what was, at the time,...
