I know this is a little odd, considering the game Ward had, but it's something that my roommates and I have seen in the past couple games, and it's starting to bug me.

Is there something wrong with Ward? Something happening in his life that would take his mind off the game? He doesn't seem to trust himself as much as he did last year. Everytime he loses sight of the puck, he flails around, looks behind him, and often time puts himself in a more dangerous position by doing so. In that same note, his commitment to shots this year are far earlier than they need to be. The Rupp goal was because he committed too early, as was the Crosby shootout goal.

Don't get me wrong, he's played great this year, and is often the only reason we're in most of the games. But as I said earlier, it's bugging me (mostly the commitment thing), and if it becomes a habit with him, it could lead to some nasty games down the road.
