The Sports Network

Raleigh, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - The Carolina Hurricanes have recalled goaltender Cam Ward from a conditioning stint at their American Hockey League affiliate in Charlotte.

Ward was activated off injured reserve Thursday and sent to Charlotte to play a couple of games. He was 1-1 with a 2.02 goals-against average and a .937 save percentage in two AHL outings for the Checkers.

The Saskatoon native last played for the Hurricanes on Dec. 31 against Montreal and has missed the team's last 14 games. It was Ward's second stint on IR this season, as he also missed 10 games in October and November with a lower body problem.

In 19 NHL games this season, Ward has a record of 6-7-5 with a 3.15 GAA and an .895 save percentage.

    Henrik Lundqvist stopped 14 shots and the New York Rangers used a strong third period to take a 4-1 win over the Philadelphia Flyers in Game 1 of this Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series. The Rangers got a pair of power-play goals off a Jason Akeson double-minor in the third period, and used a smothering defense to limit the Flyers' chances and take a 1-0 lead in this best-of-seven series. Game 2 will take place on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. Brad Richards posted a goal and two assists while Derek Stepan, Mats Zuccarello and Carl Hagelin all lit the lamp for New York, which got two assists from late-season addition Martin St. Louis. This was New York's first postseason win at Madison Square Garden against Philadelphia since Apr. 12, 1987, in Game 4 of the Patrick Division Semifinals. Philadelphia had to play the game with Ray Emery in goal, as starter Steve Mason suffered an upper-body injury in Saturday's game against Pittsburgh and was held out of the opener. Appearing the playoffs for the first time since 2011 with Anaheim, Emery turned away 22-of-23 shots in the first two periods, but then let up three goals on 13 shots in the third. Andrew MacDonald scored the only goal of the game for the Flyers, who are back in the playoffs after missing out last season.
