Jonathan Bernier was perfect against 26 shots Saturday night to record a 3-0 win over the Coyotes.
Bernier has had only four minutes of ice time in 2017 and he faced only one shot against the Flyers on New Year’s Day. Despite winning in six of his last seven starts, John Gibson desperately needed some rest. It seems likely that the Ducks will have a little more confidence in Bernier following this performance.

The Ducks will turn to Jonathan Bernier to guard their crease against the Coyotes on Saturday.

Anaheim's backup has posted a 6-3-1 record with an .897 save percentage and 3.09 GAA. Even against the toothless Coyotes you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.

Jonathan Bernier hasn't started in a game since Dec. 20.

In total Bernier has started in just 12 games this season. It was always known that he`d be the Ducks' understudy, but John Gibson's strong play, especially of late, has kept Bernier's playing time to a minimum. "That’s the business," Bernier said. "You got to win games and he’s playing well right now. We’re playing well as a team obviously and I think it’s completely understandable. But it’s not an easy situation at the same time for anyone. very guy that’s in here, it could be a forward, or (defenseman) or goalie, wants to play and help this team. I’m just trying to stay ready for when my chance will come."

Jonathan Bernier played 3:48 in the second period Sunday and stopped the only shot he faced.

John Gibson was pulled for a bit after giving up the third Philadelphia goal but coach Randy Carlyle didn't want to use his timeout and went with the goalie switch instead. The brief time in net did wonders for his GAA as it lowered from 3.07 to 3.06. Another 50 games like this and at least his goals-against-average will be reasonable.
Jan 2 - 7:30 AM

With his loss on Tuesday, Jonathan Bernier now has a career 0-6-2 record at Montreal's Bell Centre.

"It’s been a tough go in this building for some reason," Bernier said. "I don’t think we had a lot of good jump tonight. Obviously I turned the puck over on the third one and then it just kind of went south. We kind of stop playing our structure and they scored five." Bernier has a 6-3-1 record, 3.07 GAA, and .897 save percentage in 15 contests this season. As the season goes on he might prove to be a more solid backup than those numbers imply, but he's unlikely to claim the starting gig in Anaheim.

Jonathan Bernier allowed five goals on 34 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

It's safe to say this isn't the outcome Bernier wanted in any game, let alone a game in his home province. Two of Montreal's five goals were scored on the power play. Bernier has 6-3-1 record with a 3.07 goals-against-average and a .897 save percentage this season.

Jonathan Bernier will get the call on Tuesday against Montreal.

The move isn't a surprise after John Gibson played the first half of the Ducks' back-to-back set Monday night in a 3-2 win over Toronto. Bernier owns a 1-8-3 record with a 3.24 goals-against average and an .895 save percentage in 12 career games against Montreal.

Jonathan Bernier is unsure if he will play Monday in Toronto or Tuesday in Montreal.

Both games mean something to the netminder as he played three seasons in Toronto before a trade in the summer to Anaheim, and he is from the Montreal area. Coach Randy Carlyle wouldn't say how he is splitting up his goalies (he never does) so it remains to be seen when Bernier will get his start.

Jonathan Bernier gave up four goals on 21 shots in the first two periods Saturday night as the Anaheim Ducks dropped a 6-4 contest to the Detroit Red Wings.

John Gibson minded the net in the third and was not any more efficient. He gave up the other two goals on 11 shots, with both goalies recording save percentages below .820. This was only the second loss for the Ducks in the past six games.

The Ducks will turn to Jonathan Bernier when they take on the Red Wings on Saturday.

Through five games against Eastern foes this season, Bernier has posted a 3-1-1 with 12 goals against and a .931 save percentage. Pretty stout, even if in a limited opportunity.

Jonathan Bernier turned aside 31 of 34 shots in Thursday's 4-3 win over the Boston Bruins.

Bernier gave up the first two goals of the game, but he and his team were able to battle back. He's won each of his last two starts and three of his last four. The 28-year-old has a 6-2-1 record with a 2.69 goals-against-average and a .908 save percentage this season.

Jonathan Bernier will be in net against the Bruins on Thursday.

Only twice this season has Bernier allowed more than two goals in a game this season, and yes, one of them was eight goals to Calgary nearly two weeks ago. All in all, his .907 save percentage should perhaps guide you away from this matchup.

Jonathan Bernier turned aside 22 of 24 shots in a 3-2 win over the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

This was Bernier’s first start since giving up eight goals to the Flames on Sunday. He wasn’t terribly busy in goal for the Ducks tonight, but he did what he had to do to put his team in a position to win, making a few keys stops along the way. The Ducks acquired Bernier from the Toronto Maple Leafs during the off-season and he has turned out to be a fairly solid backup for Gibson in goal. He hasn’t posted terrific numbers, but the win improves his record to 5-2-1 in 11 games this season.

Jonathan Bernier will be in net against the Sharks on Friday.

Through his first eight games and seven starts, Bernier was 4-1-1 with 14 goals against. Then he got left in for eight goals against Calgary. If you disregard his previous game, he's been excellent this season and ought to continue to be.

After a rough showing on Sunday, Jonathan Bernier will need to bounce back.

Bernier allowed eight goals on just 25 shots in an 8-3 loss to Calgary on Sunday. Ryan Kesler suggested that the Ducks collectively deserve the blame of the blowout loss while Antoine Vermette emphasized that they still have confidence in Bernier. "What you try to do is you try to flush what happened," Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. "You can’t change what just went. Try to play a period that we can get ourselves in a preparation mode for our next one." Unfortunately for Bernier, as the backup goaltender it might be a little bit before he's able to put that game behind him by getting another start.
