I was glad to see Ward get it. Even though Brind'amour was the straw that stirred the 'Canes drink, Carolina wouldn't have gotten past round 1 if it hadn't been for Ward. Gerber was just dreadful and cost himself millions of dollars in the process.
Ward must have cemented things with that last big save on Pisani. I thought that puck was going in what a save! It didn't help Brind'Amor's case as the Oilers made him somewhat disappear towards the end of the series.
The cool thing about Ward is he didn't even seem to want it. He tried to leave it with the NHL guy after it was presented. They had to follow him around all night with the thing.
BTW we have a used goalie for sale if anyones interested. Gerber got us here it's a shame he couldn't finish the job. Ward just got hot and the guys really responded.
