Ward was definitely responsible for those goals, but they were PP goals so this project isn't concerned with them. The only ES goal he surrendered was a case of ECHL defense by Sanguinetti.
Last night's numbers almost look backward from reality (more + than -, Ellis with an error and Ward not) but that's perhaps an indicator that we were better at even strength over the full 60 minutes than it felt. The first-period meltdown was almost entirely triggered by dumb penalties and bad goaltending, moreso than getting dominated by the other team. When you come down to it, Ward's 2-for-5 on PP shots pretty much decided the outcome of the game.
