RALEIGH, N.C. - Cam Ward figured out how to stop the Detroit Red Wings at just the right time.Facing a virtual must-win situation to keep his Nolan Cromwell Jersey team alive for a playoff spot, Ward made 42 saves to lead the Carolina Hurricanes past Detroit, 3-0 on Wednesday night."We refused to give up," Ward said.Jeff Skinner and Derek Joslin scored in the second period and Erik Cole added a goal in the third for the Hurricanes, who beat the Red Wings for the first time since 2006the year they won the Stanley Cup. Carolina has Aaron Donald Jersey won seven of nine to move to 89 points and remain in the hunt for just its second post-season berth since that championship season."I think we're really coming into our own, playing good, five-man hockey," said Eric Staal, who had three a sists. "It's the time of year when you've got to have your game going to get into the playoffs. We like to think we're right there, and hopefully we can follow it up ... and be right where we want to Robert Woods Jersey be."They'll need some help to get there, with the clearest path requiring them to win both of their final two games while the New York Rangers, eighth with 91 points, lose one of their last two."It's a lot of emotions when you get down to this time of year," Skinner said. "It's exciting to come to the rink and have a chance. That's all you can ask for."Jimmy Howard made 29 saves for the Central Division champion Red Wings, who lost star left winger Henrik Zetterberg to a lower-body injury.Zetterberg, who collided with Carolina defenceman Bryan Allen midway through the first period, has a team-best 80 points and entered with 11 points in his previous 10 games. Coach Mike Babcock said Zetterberg would be evaluated after the team returns to Detroit. He a sumes Zetterberg probably won't play through this weekend, but "he'll get checked out by our people, and we'll go from there."As strong as Ward was Los Angeles Rams Jersey in net, Detroit certainly could have used him.
