Jonathan Bernier Has Been Good

01/08/2020 at 4:35pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Jonathan Bernier is giving the Red Wings a chance to win, and where this season is right now, that’s a very good thing.

Bernier continued his impressive play Tuesday night in a 4-3 victory over Montreal. The victory was only the Wings’ second in the last 10 games – both won with Bernier in net.

In fact, of the 11 victories the Wings have this season, Bernier has nine of them, Jimmy Howard the remaining two.

Howard’s ineffectiveness for much of this season has led to Bernier getting more playing time and lately, the larger share of the starts.

Coach Jeff Blashill talked last week about the importance of having a goaltender, whoever it may be, carrying a team at times.

“If you look across the league, at times when teams are going through winning stretches, they’re getting great goaltending,” Blashill said. “It gives you a lot of confidence.”

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.
