Jonathan Bernier Can’t Be Beaten In the AHL

from Lance Honrby of the Toronto Sun,

Jonathan Bernier had to work a lot harder for his third consecutive shutout.

With the Utica Comets having seven power play chances on Friday against the Toronto Marlies, Bernier turned aside 26 shots by Vancouver's farm team in an intense game that wasn't settled until a pair of late third-period goals gave the Marlies a 2-0 victory.

Bernier has now turned aside all 70 shots he has face3d since accepting a 10-day conditioning stint in the American Hockey League, designed to restore confidence after he lost his first nine NHL decisions this season (0-8-1 with a .888 save percentage).

The organization's plan is likely to use Antoine Bibeau in net Saturday in Syracuse and go back to Bernier Sunday at Ricoh Coliseum vs. the Comets.
