Still on track for Wednesday.

The Canes' plan still is to have Cam Ward make his first start in goal against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday, coach Paul Maurice said today.

Ward had another productive day of practice today at the RBC Center before the Canes left for their four-game road swing. But Maurice would rather wait one more game before giving his No. 1 goaltender his first real test, so Manny Legace should start Monday in Pittsburgh.

"We're not planning on having him back up in Pittsburgh -- if he's ready to back up, he's ready to play," Maurice said. "It will allow us to get another real good work day in, and then have a recovery day in practice and then be ready for Jersey.

"If we get to Tuesday and he gets through practice and he still doesn't feel right, then we'll just push it back. ... I'm putting him back as soon as he's ready."
