Hurricanes edge Sabres, move one win away from Cup Finals

Via: Sportsticker

‘The Hurricanes appeared to be in major trouble early in the second period, when defenseman Toni Lydman scored on a breakaway to give the fourth-seeded Sabres a 3-1 lead. However, Carolina coach Peter Laviolette immediately called upon Ward to replace Gerber and the move paid off brilliantly. Ward, who had started 12 straight games prior to Game Four, turned aside all 15 shots he faced in relief of Gerber, who allowed three tallies on only 11 shots.’
