Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Cam Ward, who was taken to a hospital Saturday after being injured during the game with the Columbus Blue Jackets, received stitches and is expected to return to Raleigh on Sunday.
The Carolina Hurricanes played hard and for the most part played well Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Penguins.
The Canes banged and hounded the puck. Ray Whitney scored twice and Cam
Ward twice made spectacular saves to deny the Penguins a goal. Carolina
gamely rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the score and force overtime.
But the Hurricanes couldn't finish it off against the Stanley Cup
champions. The Penguins took a 3-2 shootout victory at the RBC Center
on Chris Kunitz' goal.
