Carolina Hurricane Win 3-2 Despite Injured Goalie

Dan Ellis, goalie for the Carolina Hurricane, didn’t start in yesterday’s game against the Florida Panthers. He did end up playing though, and helped his team earn a 3-2 victory with 19 saves.

Ellis explained that his initial reluctance to play was due to an illness.

“Just wasn’t feeling well,” Ellis said. “Some type of flu or whatever it was, but in the end that ended up costing us our goalie. It kind of sucks to lose such a good goaltender, such a big piece to our team, and such a good person. But at least we got the win.”

Goalie Cam Ward replaced Ellis in the beginning of the game, but was taken down during the second. The extent of his leg injury was unclear after the game.

“He’ll probably get evaluated tomorrow… More results,” explained Hurricane coach Kirk Muller. “Hopefully he gets back soon because he was playing good hockey.”

Ellis added: “If I maybe would have just found a way to play through it, maybe it could have prevented an accident like that.”
