Canes' Ward equals club records with 40-save shutout

How good was Carolina goaltender Cam Ward in Tuesday's 1-0 Canes victory in HSBC Arena? Ward's 40-save shutout equaled the most stops in a blanking of the Sabres in Buffalo's franchise history. Old friend Marty Biron also made 40 stops in a 3-0 win for Philadelphia here on Nov. 21, 2008.

Ward's 40 stops also tied the Hartford/Carolina franchise record for saves in a shutout, set by Jason Muzzati with 40 for Hartford at New Jersey on April 4, 1996 (10 days before he was tossed for fighting in the final game at the Aud).

It was the 10th time this season Ward has made 40 or more saves in a game -- and Carolina is 8-1-1 in those contests.

The Sabres were off today and return to the ice Thursday morning in the arena.
