Ward will be between the pipes for Tuesday's road matchup with the Oilers.

Ward was terrible in his first start of the season Thursday against the Jets, surrendering five goals on 26 shots en route to a 5-4 overtime loss. The 32-year-old backstop is likely in for another rough outing Tuesday, as he'll be taking on a Connor McDavid-led Oilers offense that has been on fire to start the season, racking up 14 goals over three games.
