After a disastrous start to the year, his record now stands at 6-5-1 while his 2.57 GAA and .903 save percentage are a little more respectable.

Ward's on fire. He has won five straight starts during Carolina's current 5-0-1 stretch. He is now a respectable 5-3-1 on the season. His goals-against average is 2.53 and his save percentage, .900. He's possibly available in your fantasy league. Is he worth acquiring? Well, let's put it like this: If the Canes have any chance of winning games, it's usually because of him. At 30, Ward is as healthy as he's been in years and taking a chance with him is perhaps worthwhile.

Although the season is still young, Cam Ward has been showing signs of turning his career around lately.

Ward has limited the competition to four goals over his last three starts.

But he has settled into a nice groove now." Peters also tapped Ward to make his fifth straight start on Friday. After the struggles Ward has gone through over the last couple seasons, we're not ready to assume that he'll play as a starter-caliber goaltender for the better part of the 2014-15. Still, his recent play has been encouraging.
