Cam Ward (flu) will start against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.

Ward hasn't started since March 14 in part due to the disease. "He's good," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. "He's over the sickness. It just took longer than we would have liked. It was a great opportunity for Dobby, and he did well in his opportunity. Now we'll go back to Wardo here against Pittsburgh." Ward has a 2.44 GAA and .910 save percentage in 44 games this season.

Ward's record is closing in on .500, at 18-20-4. His goals-against average is 2.47 and his save percentage is .909. He has a career record of 4-3-1 against the Oilers but he really didn't need to do much against them yesterday. Other than Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (three goals and an assist) and Jordan Eberle (a goal and two assists), the Oilers looked like they were sleepskating.
