Jonathan Bernier Has Been A Bright Spot This Season

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

During a season in which there’s been little going right for the Red Wings, goaltender Jonathan Bernier has definitely been one positive.

Since gradually becoming the regular goalie around late December, Bernier has gotten the bulk of games and provided the Wings with quality work.

Bernier’s 13-21-3 record, 2.92 goals-against average and .907 save percentage arguably don’t provide an entirely accurate description of how well he’s played this season.

“You want to win every game and obviously we’re not,” Bernier said. “You want to be making a difference. Every game you don’t win, you look at it and try to get better and change things to be on the winning side.”

This will be the first time since the 2014-15 season in Toronto that Bernier has blown by the 40-games played mark (he’s at 43), and been the clear-cut No. 1 goalie on a team.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
