Jonathan Bernier (lower body) will not get the start in Game 5.

Bernier was pulled from Game 4 due to the ailment. The fact that he's hurt is especially rough given that the Avalanche were already missing Semyon Varlamov. With the top two goaltenders injured, Andrew Hammond will get the nod in Game 5.

Coach Jared Bednar did not have an update on the status of Jonathan Bernier (lower body) after Wednesday's game.

"I haven't talked to the trainers yet," Bednar said. Andrew Hammond started the third period in relief and may be pressed into further action if Bernier can't play in Game 5 on Friday night.
Apr 19 - 9:47 AM

Jonathan Bernier suffered a lower-body injury in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Andrew Hammond was between the pipes to start the third period (Colorado was trailing 3-0 at the time). The Avs are down to their third string netminder now that Semyon Varlamov and Bernier are both out. Bernier turned aside 23 of 26 shots in the defeat. He now has a 1-3 record with a 3.87 goals-against-average and a .883 save percentage this postseason. The Avalanche now find themselves down 3-1 in this best-of-seven series. They'll look to save their season in Nashville on Friday night. The Avs will likely provide an update on Bernier's status in the next day or so. We'll consider him day-to-day for now.

Jonathan Bernier will get the start in Game 4 against Nashville on Wednesday night.

Bernier stopped 29 of 32 shots in Monday's 5-3 win over Nashville. He has a 1-2 record with a 3.72 goals-against-average and a .883 save percentage this postseason.

Jonathan Bernier stopped 29 shots in a 5-3 win over Nashville on Monday night in Game 3.

Nashville turned up the pressure in the third period and got two goals on 14 shots, but the Avalanche and Bernier held strong to preserve the victory. Bernier has a 3.73 goals-against average and .883 save percentage in the postseason. Colorado trails the first-round best-of-seven series 2-1 with Game 4 set for Wednesday night.
Apr 17 - 10:06 AM

Jonathan Bernier will be between the pipes for Game 3 against the Nashville Predators.

The Avalanche have given the Predators all they can handle in the first two games of the series, but they still find themselves down 2-0. Bernier needs to step up his game if the Avs are going to make this a series. He has an 0-2 record with a 4.08 goals-against-average and a .871 save percentage this postseason. "He can be better, for sure," Avs head coach Jared Bednar said. "I think if you look at the importance of goaltending this time of the year 'good' is usually not good enough. I think their guy made some saves at some key times, made some big saves that kind of let them keep the lead or have the chance to fight back in both of those games."
Apr 16 - 6:27 PM

Jonathan Bernier allowed four goals on 32 shots in Saturday's 5-4 Game 2 loss to the Nashville Predators.

Word before puck drop was that Bernier was dealing with some sort of illness or injury heading into the game but he didn't look bothered by anything. With Colorado's defensive shortcomings, Bernier will need to start stealing games if they Avalanche want a shot at coming back in the series down 2-0. His career post-season record will fall to 1-4 in seven games.
Apr 14 - 6:11 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be in nets this afternoon when the Colorado Avalanche play the Nashville Predators in Game 2 of their best-of-seven series.

With Semyon Varlamov out due to injury, Bernier starting should come as no surprise. Earlier we reported that Bernier is dealing with some sort of injury or illness of his own, but it appears to be something minor and the Avalanche will be able to rely on him today. The Avalanche had a one-goal lead on two separate occasions in Game 1 and they'll be looking for a bit more puck luck today to come away with the victory.
Apr 14 - 12:14 PM

Jonathan Bernier is likely playing through some type of illness or injury.

The Avs netminder has been forced into a starting role in the playoffs because Semyon Varlamov is out with an injury. But Bernier has skipped morning skates and he didn't practice on Friday morning. He's still expected to be between the pipes for Game 2. It's a situation worth monitoring.

Jonathan Bernier stopped 26 of 30 shots in a 5-2 loss to Nashville in Game 1 on Thursday night.

Bernier made just his fifth appearance and second start in the NHL postseason. He will go into Game 2 with a 4.07 goals-against average and .867 save percentage.
Apr 13 - 1:17 AM

Jonathan Bernier is expected to get the call for Game 1 against Nashville on Thursday night.

Bernier helped get Colorado into the playoffs when he stopped 32 shots in a 5-2 win over St. Louis in Saturday's regular-season finale. Semyon Varlamov won't play in Round 1 of the playoffs and the Avalanche have confidence that Bernier can handle the number one role. He will have a difficult task in front of him against the heavily-favored Nashville Predators.

Apr 12 - 10:38 AM

Jonathan Bernier turned aside 32 of 34 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

The Avalanche came into tonight's game just one point behind the Blues for the final Wild Card spot in the West. Colorado had to win this game in regulation and that's exactly what they did. With starting goalie Semyon Varlamov sidelined with an injury, look for Bernier to be the starting netminder when the playoffs open next week. The Avalanche will take on the top team in the league, the Nashville Predators, in round one. Bernier finishes the season with a 19-13-3 record, a 2.85 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage.
