Cape Breton swept the series' opening games in Quebec City and their 2-0 lead heading back to the island looks huge. Wardâ€™s three assist sets a career high for assists in a game. He has reached three points in a game one other time, that coming December 28 vs. PEI (1-2-3) - his second game with the Screaming Eagles after being traded from Lewiston. Two of Ward's assists Sunday came on the power play and one was shorthanded. Game 3 is Tuesday in Sydney.
Luke Witkowski and West No.3 Fargo will begin their Best of 5 first round series with No.2 Omaha on Friday in Nebraska.
