Cam Ward to See Back Specialist Monday

Goaltender Cam Ward will see a specialist on Monday to determine the extent of a back injury, the Hurricanes confirmed today.

The team says that the ailment, which coach Paul Maurice said "stiffened up" after the team’s loss in Calgary Wednesday, is not related to the back issue that first appeared during the 2009 Eastern Conference Finals and again flared up during Team Canada’s Olympic Orientation camp in August.

Ward is still officially listed as day-to-day, but that could change depending on the results of Monday’s examination. Backup Manny Legace earned the win in Buffalo on Friday night, while Justin Peters, the Canes’ second-round pick in 2004 who recently played in the American Hockey League All-Star Game, is expected to get his first NHL start tonight against the New York Islanders.
