Toronto goalie Jonathan Bernier allowed only a first-period power-play goal in a 1-0 loss to the Lightning in Tampa Bay Wednesday night.
Bernier made 28 saves and generally played well, but the Maple Leafs couldn't score on any of their 30 shots. So Bernier's record drops to an ugly 6-13-3. His goals-against average improved, however, to 3.03. His save percentage is now .902. Wednesday's game proved irrefutably why it wouldn't be wise to invest in Bernier for your fantasy team. His team simply isn't good enough. Jan 27 - 11:03 PM

Jonathan Bernier will start Wednesday's match against Tampa Bay.

The Leafs will start James Reimer on Tuesday in the first game of the team's back-to-back set. Bernier is reportedly being shopped by the Leafs, but he'll have to display more consistency to look like an attractive trade option for other clubs.
Jan 25 - 1:13 PM

Jonathan Bernier yielded three goals on 45 shots in the Maple Leafs’ 3-2 loss to the Bruins on Saturday night.

Can’t fault him for this one. Bernier gave up a goal in each period, but he was generally excellent throughout. Brad Marchand scored at 19:13. It’s a nice bounce-back effort for Bernier, who gave up seven goals in his last start Jan. 9. He has a 3.13 GAA and .899 SV%. He's not recommended in fantasy, especially because James Reimer will likely get the majority of starts.

Confirming an earlier report, Jonathan Bernier will indeed get the start against Boston Saturday night.

The Maple Leafs play in back-to-back games this weekend and James Reimer played against the Blackhawks Friday night. Bernier is coming off an embarrassing 7-0 loss to San Jose last Saturday. Start him at your own risk.
Jan 16 - 11:19 AM

Jonathan Bernier will start Saturday's game versus Boston.

James Reimer will get the nod for Friday's match against Chicago. He faced the Bruins in a back-to-back situation in late November and lost both contests, so coach Mike Babcock is giving Boston a different look with Bernier. It will Bernier's first start since he was blasted by San Jose last Saturday.

Jonathan Bernier gave up seven goals on 31 shots in the Maple Leafs’ 7-0 loss to the Sharks on Saturday night.

Woof. Quite the disastrous night for Bernier, who allowed four goals in the second and three in the third. While he has generally been better since he returned from an AHL stint, Bernier has been prone to these hiccups, to put it nicely. He had allowed three goals over the past three games (all wins), but gave up six Dec. 29 against the Islanders. He has a 3.14 GAA and .896 SV%.
Jan 9 - 10:02 PM

Confirming an earlier report, Jonathan Bernier will indeed get the start Saturday night against San Jose.

Bernier has been on a roll winning four of his last five starts. He has also allowed only four goals in the four wins. Other than an ugly six-goal loss to the Islanders, Bernier has been virtually flawless since his return from the AHL.
Jan 9 - 11:39 AM

Jonathan Bernier will face San Jose on Saturday night.

Don't look now, but Bernier has won four of his last five starts and has allowed just four goals in those wins. The one loss? A six-goal effort on 15 shots to the Islanders in the second of a home-and-home series in which he played both games. He's turned away 142 of his last 146 shots aside from the one loss, so perhaps he's starting to put it back together after all.
Jan 8 - 7:33 PM

Jonathan Bernier made 39 saves in the Leafs' 4-0 shutout of Anaheim.

That is three straight outstanding starts now for Bernier who has wins in four of his last five starts. He has allowed just three goals on his last 120 shots faced. Curiously enough, that is three straight games with 39 saves. If he hasn't been picked up yet in your pools, now is the time to nab him. He is making the most of James Reimer's injury.
Jan 7 - 3:40 AM

Jonathan Bernier will be in goal for Wednesday's game against Anaheim.

The decision isn't surprising even if James Reimer is ready to return by then. Bernier has been very good for the Leafs in wins over St. Louis and Pittsburgh in his last two outings.
Jan 5 - 10:31 AM

Jonathan Bernier set aside 39 shots in the Maple Leafs’ 4-1 win against the Blues on Saturday night.

Bernier is taking advantage of James Reimer's injury. You don’t have to rewind this season much to remember when Bernier seemed like a lost cause, sent down to the minors and struggling to find his confidence. In the past four games, he has three wins.
Jan 2 - 10:46 PM

Jonathan Bernier will indeed get the start Saturday against St. Louis.

As reported earlier, Bernier will get the nod while James Reimer is still dealing with a groin muscle issue. We don't like Bernier's chances against St. Louis on Saturday so we would advise not starting him unless you have no choice.
Jan 2 - 11:22 AM

Jonathan Bernier will face the Blues on Saturday.

Through 17 games this season, as many as injured James Reimer, Bernier has posted a 4-10-3 record with an .889 save percentage and a 3.22 GAA. So unless your league rewards goalies for their failures, we'd find a more favorable matchup.
Jan 1 - 10:27 PM

Jonathan Bernier bounced back with a first-rate performance Wednesday night, making 39 saves in regulation and overtime en route to the Maple Leafs' 3-2 shootout victory over the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins.

Bernier got the start after James Reimer, who was expected to play for the first time since Dec. 3, was ruled out a few hours before the game with "tightness." But don't go out and grab Bernier for your fantasy team just yet. His win Wednesday was the highlight of an otherwise awful season. His record is now 4-10-3. His goals-against average and save percentage are ugly, too, at 3.22 and .889, respectively.

Jonathan Bernier will start Wednesday's game against Pittsburgh.

James Reimer was scheduled to start versus the Penguins, but he felt some "tightness" after Tuesday's relief appearance. Bernier will get back in the cage after being burned for six goals on 15 shots by the Islanders.
