WINNIPEG - Cam Ward grinned as he described how he felt like a kid making some key saves in his Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday. Nick Perry Jersey . Ward stole a pair of goals from Winnipeg centre Bryan Little in the first period, beginning with a pad save during a Jets two-man advantage and then displaying his quickness with a highlight-reel stick stop. Little was about to fire the puck into a wide-open side of the net, but Ward whipped out his stick and the puck hit the paddle. "It was a fun save," Ward said with a chuckle after making 34 stops. "The initial shot was in a position where I knew I was going to have to kick out a bit of a rebound. Just out of pure desperation, I threw my stick out there and made a save that brings you back to the ol street hockey days as a kid. "But Little, I think he got even with me scoring that second goal in the third period so it all evens out." Jets head coach Paul Maurice, who coached the Hurricanes for parts of 11 seasons, even tipped his hat to Ward. "Cam Ward was the story of this hockey game," Maurice said. "He was the best player on the ice." The Jets had mounted a 9-0 advantage in shots on goal on the way to a 13-6 gap at the end of a scoreless first period. Ward then got some offensive help from his teammates, as brothers Eric and Jordan Staal and Riley Nash each scored within a span of two minutes and 53 seconds in the second. Defenceman Andrej Sekera had a pair of assists for the Hurricanes (31-31-9) to give him 31 on the season to go with 11 goals. Jets centre Jim Slater had scored his first goal of an injury-marred season 7:48 into the second, but Eric Staal got the roll going 37 seconds later with his 17th goal of the season. Little scored his 21st goal of the season for Winnipeg (32-31-9) 1:27 into the third period. Al Montoya stopped 29 shots while making his fourth straight start in net for Winnipeg since Ondrej Pavelec went out with a lower-body injury. Hes expected to return to action next week. Montoya was pointing the finger at himself for the loss. "We came out firing. Their goaltender played well," Montoya said. "I didnt make the saves I needed to make and at the end of the day that cost us the game." Maurice said Montoya was wrong. "If a guy is clearly the reason youre in the hole, Ill get him out of the net before that happens," Maurice said. "They get to this level thinking they should stop everything. He will feel that because hes got a front-row seat to the way the guy at the other end is playing so its magnified." Carolina head coach Kirk Muller said Wards stellar play was inspiring for his teammates. "The guys knew that he was giving a great effort and he was keeping us in there," Muller said. "They were like, Hey, weve got to surround him with some better play here and, fortunately, we got timely goals. We played better the rest of the game and it was a nice team effort for everybody." Ward has battled through two injuries this season and was bumped to backup for Anton Khudobin, who was in net for Carolinas 3-2 loss to Chicago Friday night. Carolina returns home for a game Tuesday against the New York Islanders. Winnipeg, which heads out on a five-game road trip beginning Monday in Dallas, remains at 73 points. Heading into the game, the Jets were six points back of the final wild-card spot in the Western Conference. The Jets were coming off a 5-4 overtime win against Colorado on March 19. The loss to Carolina was Winnipegs 40th one-goal game this season and they are 18-13-9 in those outings. Jordan Staal made it 2-1 when he went through Jets defenders and scored over Montoyas blocker at 10:10 of the second while Slater was in the penalty box for tripping. Maurice said Winnipegs first period was "about as good as were going to play," but Staals power-play marker hurt. "No doubt we got tight at 2-1," he said. "You could feel it." The Jets, who were outshot 21-8 in the second, were working without defenceman Zach Bogosian, who left the game in the period with an upper-body injury that Maurice said isnt too serious. It appeared Stuart tied it up six minutes after Littles goal, but the goal was waved off for goaltender interference as Jets defenceman Dustin Byfuglien fell on top of Ward in the crease and was lying on his right arm. Winnipeg pulled Montoya with about 65 seconds left in the game and swarmed Ward, but the veteran held tough. The Jets outshot the Hurricanes 15-5 in the third. Notes: Jordan Staals power-play goal was the first the Jets have allowed at home in five consecutive games. Winnipegs penalty kill was ranked fifth-best (84.8 per cent) in the NHL heading into the game … Both the Jets and Hurricanes are 2-3-0 in their last five games … The game was the second one of Carolinas 18th set of back-to-back games this season. It plays two more. Only Jersey has more back-to-back sets this season with 22. The Hurricanes so far are 9-8-1 in the first game of their sets and 5-10-3 in the second game.

The club was unable to retain hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who is bound for Atlanta.

Meanwhile, having just celebrated his third birthday, Cristiano Ronaldo was likely dreaming of one day leading his team out at Estadio Santiago Bernabéu in a Champions League semi-final against Manchester United. Back then, English football’s winningest club had just been anointed by Deloitte as the richest club in all of world football. Trailing in their wake, and by quite a distance, was Real Madrid in the runners-up spot and Bayern Munich rounded out the podium. Not much has changed, you’re thinking. Well, think again. Back then, Manchester United and Real Madrid’s combined income was £160 million ($285 million.) Today, that figure for the biggest one-two knockout combination in all of world football has grown in astronomic proportions. They now sit at a truly mind-boggling €1.064 billion and growing. This works out to a jaw-dropping $1.425 Billion. From my economic perch, this represents, over the lifetime of the Deloitte Football Money League, an almost tenfold increase in incomes. Their inaugural edition represented income garnered from the 1997-1998 season. Following the release of the most up-to-date and 18th edition earlier in the week, it confirmed that, not only did Real Madid win a fabled Decima in Lisbon last May,the Spanish giants have monopolized top spot with Deloitte FC for exactly a decade now. What’s that they say about success on and off the pitch going hand in glove with each other? According to Deloitte for 2013/2014, Los Merengues banked €549.5 million, the equivalent of almost $2 million a day every day for an entire year. If Real spent it all on player acquisitions last summer, they could have bought themselves a Galactico XI made up entirely of 11 Gareth Bales or six Lionel Messis. One wonders how many jerseys that team could have sold. It’s no surprise and based purely on the unprecedented multi-billion-dollar global broadcast deal, which kicked in last season, that the Barclays Premier League dominated Deloitte’s Football Money League table to the point that half of all clubs that make up the BPL now feature in the Deloitte top 20. Just like our traditional leagues - be it the NBA, NHL or NFL - soccer clubs have three core revenue streams. These are comprised of commercial, matchday and broadcast. Over the lifetime of the Deloitte Rich List, a trend which has emerged is that matchday revenues have become a shrinking percentage of the overall revenue. The reason for this is twofold. Very few clubs have seen increase in stadium attendances. Alongside this, the commercial side of football continues to grow at an increasing pace. In some cases, especially for those at the very top, their substantial rises in commercial income evoke irrational exuberance. Take Manchester United as example. Their new jersey sponsor, Chevrolet, who came on board at the start of this season, are reported to have signed a seven-year deal which will pay the Old Trafford club £53 million each and every year. Thanks to the Bank of Canada rate cut earlier in the week, that now works out the price of a pint and pie shy of $100 million per season. To secure such an iconic jersey, Chevrolet had to pay over 50 per cent more this season than insurance giant Aon had to for the 2013/2014 one. Not a shabby raise in pay by any stretch of the imagination. No wonder Gary Bettman looks on with envy. Theres no truth to the rumours, though, that 1-800-GOT-JUNK are in negotiations with the Leafs. Not done there. The club that Waynne Rooney captains starting next season will switch out of the Swoosh for those three stripes next season. Vince Biegel Jersey. Their bill? £75 million per season. Adidass deal with Manchester United stretches a decade long. You do the math. Manchester United’s close to $1.5 billion apparel deal dwarfs any figure in all of world sport. Those world famous Yankee Pinstripes might now begin thinking, just as NYCFC hit the training pitch ahead of their expansion season, they’ve teamed up with the wrong Manchester outfit. So when we factor in just jersey and jersey sponsor-income - before Manchester United have even sold one of their tens of thousands of season ticket or the first pint is drunk of the hundreds of thousands which are poured each season at Old Trafford - the club Malcolm Glazer built into a highly self-sustainable global entity has already banked a cool quarter of a billion Canadian dollars. No wonder in this modern age of UEFA Financial Fair Play, it is no surprise to now know why the team that finished 2013/2014 well out of a lucrative Champions League spot and dropped from first to seventh in the BPL standing were still in such a tremendously liquid financial position to invest over £150 million ($290 million) on upgrades to the talent pool last summer. Im still not sure if the $100 million invested in securing the full time services of Argentine winger Angel Di Maria or lavishing over $25 million for borrowing Radamel Falcao from the tax haven that is Monaco for nine months will be looked back in time as the very best player investments of all time at Old Trafford. A fool and his gold are often parted, they say. At those prices, though, Juan Mata at £37 million this time last year almost sounds like a bargain. Let’s hope for the sake of the diminutive Spaniard he doesn’t become a tax write-off this summer. Louis Van Gaal might be the manager, but the boss these days at Old Trafford was likely schooled at Harvard. In lieu of BPL titles, they most certainly possess an MBA or two. Another disturbing trend we can garner from Deloitte over the past few seasons is that an immense divide is opening up between the haves and have-nots of European football. Plain and simple, Mr. Platini, your football rich have become more enriched, whilst UEFAs football poor are slipping further from the grasp to be in position to challenge for honours as agents for elite talent are not even returning their calls. Even the might of Juventus barely scrape into Deloitte’s top 10 these days. Amongst the top two or three in world football at the start of the millennium, it is no shock to learn that since 2006’s Calciopoli scandal, which rocked Italian football to the core and saw Juventus demoted and stripped of a pair of Serie A titles, their fortunes off the pitch have suffered a most dramatic decline. Such is the overall dominance and influence in the business of football by English club and one that is expected to grow over the short and mid-run, the blue half of Merseyside is the 10th-richest in England. Good for 20th in Deloitte’s table with income last season according to Deloitte of €144.1 million, Everton’s income expressed in USD terms works out at even $150 million. A certain just retired US player spent two very successful loan periods at Goodison Park and Landon Donovan certainly proved over his time with Everton that American footballers could most certainly live and thrive in the rarified BPL area. If Don Garber and his band of merry MLS men genuinely harbour intentions that by 2022 North America’s top tier of football is mentioned in the same breath as the finest leagues on planet futbol, the very first indicator we will get for that is when either the LA Galaxy, or maybe even New York City FC, will feature in Deloitte’s Football Money League.
