Aaron Ward talks about Walker's sucker punch

9

Aaron Ward spoke with the media today after the morning skate about the incident with Scott Walker in Game 5. "It's a joke. It's honestly a joke. I don't remember a single word being said. I was looking at Matt Cullen. The moment I saw his right hand was when it was about a foot away from my face." When asked if he will wear a visor as instructed by doctors: "I haven't worn one in 16 years. I'm not going to start now." Ward also added that he never spoke to Colin Campbell regarding the incident before Campbell issued his ruling.

Status of Ference and Wheeler unknown for Game 4

4

From CBC Sports: "Julien declined to disclose whether Andrew Ference or Blake Wheeler will be available tomorrow. Ference looked like he aggravated a lower-body injury in the second period when he was checked into the boards by Scott Walker. Ference skated only three shifts in the second period and didn't play in the third period or overtime. Wheeler was hurt while blocking a shot in the second period. Wheeler underwent X-rays after the game." In the event that either player or both players can't play tomorrow night, I would expect Shane Hnidy to take Ference's spot and Byron Bitz to step in for Wheeler. Call ups could also be likely, considering that they don't have any other healthy bodies. I'd like to see what Johnny Boychuk can do, but that might be throwing him directly into the fire.
