Anyone remember that game about 3 years ago when Carolina held the puck in the Toronto zone for like 4 minutes? The Leaf fans went nuts when it went out.

Am I the only one who really kind of likes Dwyer on that second line? Good speed, very responsible defensively to make up for Skinner a bit, has a decent shot and works hard. He doesnt have to score 30 goals, but if he can get 15 (in a normal season) and play solid responsible D that would be perfect.

That was a remarkably well played 2nd and 3rd, and Ward was fantastic.

I am pleased.

Kudos to Ward. I know he had said "watch out" for the next time he gets in the game, but based on his play up to this point I couldn't bring myself to believe him. He played a hell of a game.

IF we play a team game like this everyday, we're going to win a LOT of games this year. Unfortunately I bet this is our ceiling.

That's how this team should be winning games. Cam being back in top form helps a lot, our D not looking like headless chickens is a positive sign, and our forwards seem to be figuring each other out.

No. I think Dwyer earned a chance to play there honestly. And I'll even say that he probably should have had the chance earlier.

You've gotta hand it to the guy. He skates hard, doesn't make stupid mistakes very often, handles the puck fairly well, and makes the most of any chances he gets.

I really thought he brought a little spring to that line tonight.

Whats unfortunate about that? We just played the kind of game that great teams are supposed to play. If we can get off this 'play like crap every other game' kick, we could make a lot of noise in the East this year.

This is not a bad ceiling to have. Just need to be more consistent going forward.

The team defense has shown it can be a bit better.. Ward was close to his best tonight.. if he can be consistent and the D is a little better, they should be fine.

A playoff team should be expected with the above play. Not a cup contender but playoffs.

I'm a fan of Dwyer. Glad to see the coach give him a shot in top 6. He did this a few seasons ago and then went stale. Lets hope he keeps his head up and takes advantage of this!

I dunno about that... We get Good Cam Ward on a consistent basis, and who knows how far they can go.

Good Cam Ward makes up for A LOT of crappy defensive play.

Whoa:

Michael Smith @MSmithCanes
#Canes Justin Faulk logged a career-high 29:04 of ice time, including 8:35 on special teams.
Double whoa:

Michael Smith @MSmithCanes
Cam Ward with a 41-save performance in the #Canes 4-1 win. He made 19 saves in the final period.
For the love of God everyone, stay healthy please.

Agreed, only Faulk and a 1st? I figured we'd need to throw in Skinner...
