Cam Ward is having a rather rough season, but every once in a while, he shows glimpses of the guy that won the Conn Smythe way back in 2006. The Carolina Hurricanes netminder made one of the most dazzling stops of his career Saturday night against the Winnipeg Jets, and that's saying something.

After making a save on Michael Frolik, Ward absolutely robbed Bryan Little with a stunning diving stick save to keep the game scoreless in the first period.

That's a miracle save right there. The reaction from Little says it all, too. He almost looked like he was going to fall over in disbelief.
