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. Dec 6 - 9:58 AM

Jonathan Bernier was shelled by the Flames on Sunday night, as the veteran allowed eight goals on 25 shots in an 8-3 loss.

Bernier was enjoying a solid start to the season in his new home in Anaheim, but was brought back down to reality in his tenth game. He falls to 4-2-1 with a 2.77 goals against average and .906 save percentage.

It'll be Jonathan Bernier in the Anaheim's net when the take on Calgary on Sunday night.

Believe it or not, Bernier is having quite the season for himself. Through eight games and seven starts, the backup netminder is 4-1-1 with a 2.06 GAA and a .933 save percentage. He even boasts six Quality Starts, which means you should feel comfortable starting him too.

Jonathan Bernier is pleased with his role on the Anaheim Ducks.

While we are sure that Bernier would love to be the number one starter, he is happy that coach Randy Carlyle has used him as much as he has. It's likely a no-brainer for Carlyle as Bernier is 4-1-1 this season with a 2.06 GAA and a .933 save percentage. "I think Randy’s been really good," Bernier said. "I’ve been playing pretty much every week. It keeps me in the game, keeps me involved. You want to play every game. But it’s a big change. Instead of playing every three weeks, you play every week. It makes a big difference." Bernier makes a very nice handcuff for John Gibson but he doesn't play enough to own him outright.

After losing three straight games, the Anaheim Ducks beat the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Saturday with Jonathan Bernier in net.

Bernier continues to make a heck of a first impression with Anaheim. In stopping 21 out of 23 SOG, Bernier improved to 4-1-1 on the season, generating a sparkling .933 save percentage early on. With the Ducks up and down, you have to wonder if Bernier will start to steal reps from John Gibson.

Jonathan Bernier will face the Sharks as the Ducks finish off back-to-back games.

Bernier has posted a 3-1-1 record with a .935 save percentage and just 12 goals against in limited time this season. He's already stopped 10 of 11 in a period of play against the Sharks earlier this season. In five games this month, Bernier has won each of his games and allowed just eight goals.

Jonathan Bernier faced 35 shots Tuesday night, blocked 33 of them for a save percentage of .943, but lost a 3-2 contest to the New York Islanders.

Both goalies were evenly matched in this contest, which was evidenced by the fact that it took 14 rounds of shootout overtime to decide the winner. Like his opponent Thomas Greiss, Bernier had his second highest outing of the season with a .943 that was bettered on November 6th against the Flames. Overall Bernier and the Ducks have been stronger, however. Bernier has been north of .900 in all five games he has played to completion.
Nov 23 - 1:48 AM

Updating a previous report, Jonathan Bernier will indeed start in goal for the Ducks on Tuesday night against the Islanders.

Bernier finds himself having a career year playing with much less pressure as the backup goaltender for the Anaheim Ducks. He boasts a 3-1-0 record in seven games played, to go along with a 2.06 goals against average and a .933 save percentage this season. However, he has a .895 save percentage and a 3.49 goals against average in eight career games against the Islanders.
Nov 22 - 9:37 PM

Jonathan Bernier should be considered Anaheim's probable starter Tuesday night.

The Ducks held an optional morning skate, but it is believed that Bernier will be in the crease against the New York Islanders. We probably won't get confirmation until the pregame warmups.
Nov 22 - 1:36 PM

Jonathan Bernier made 27 saves in the Ducks 3-2 win over New Jersey on Thursday.

Bernier and the Ducks hung in there after allowing the first two goals of the game to the hot Devils. Bernier made 12 saves in the third period to help preserve the win. He's been really good when called upon this year with a 3-1 record and 2.06 GAA in five starts. Still just a handcuff though with Gibson getting all the run.
Nov 18 - 1:38 AM

Jonathan Bernier is likely to face New Jersey on Thursday night, according to the Orange County Register.

Through five games and four starts this season Bernier is 2-1 with just eight goals against. Not too shabby, especially considering he's posted four Quality Starts already as well.
Nov 17 - 8:22 PM

Jonathan Bernier may get the nod for Anaheim on Thursday night.

It's just a guess at this point because coach Randy Carlyle hasn't named a starter and the Ducks had an optional morning skate. Bernier hasn't started since a week ago when he posted a 4-2 win over Carolina.
Nov 17 - 2:36 PM

Jonathan Bernier has gotten off to a solid start this season.

While Bernier is still clearly the Ducks' backup goaltender, he has done well when he's gotten the opportunity to play. Through five appearances he has a 2.16 GAA and .934 save percentage. "I’m not here to sit on the bench all year," Bernier said. "I know I had my toughest season in the league last year. I want to prove to everyone, especially to myself that I can be a solid goalie in this league. If I get the opportunity here, I’ll have the same approach. It’s just going day by day, game by game. Focus on little details or little goals that I have every day. That’s it." While he's not likely to challenge for the top job at any point this season, he might be able to get a little extra work along the way if he keeps playing like this.
Nov 15 - 10:08 AM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 28 of 30 shots in Thursday's 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes.

Bernier came into the season as John Gibson's clear-cut backup, but things are changing. He's now started two of Anaheim's last three games and with Gibson failing to stand out in 2016-17, Bernier might see his workload increase. He's given up just three goals in his last two starts and he now has a 2-1-0 record this season. He'll enter his next start with 2.02 goals-against-average and a .938 save percentage.
Nov 10 - 10:52 PM

Jonathan Bernier will face Carolina on Thursday night.

With five goals against in three games thus far, we'd say Bernier is off to a hot start and is lined up well to continue doing so.
