Jonathan Bernier will get the start Saturday night against the Capitals.

Bernier has not started since November 15th, and has only two starts for the entire month of November as James Reimer has been outstanding. With Reimer dealing with an injury, Bernier gets a shot against a talented Washington squad. It will be interesting to see how he responds after sitting on the pine so long.

Jonathan Bernier is eager for another opportunity.

"I don't know when, but when the time comes I've thought I've been ready," he said. "The ankle is getting better and that's the bottom line." Bernier's ankle injury opened the door for James Reimer to claim the number one job and Bernier has been relegated to backup status since then. His next game action could come next week when the Leafs play a back-to-back situation against Winnipeg (Wednesday) and Minnesota (Thursday). It also could come much sooner than that if Reimer isn't OK from his "aches and pains."

Jonathan Bernier allowed four goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the New York Rangers.

Bernier had a rough night on Sunday. He gave up a goal to Derek Stepan from center ice and he threw out a bad rebound on New York's game-winning goal with under a minute remaining. The 27-year-old is still searching for his first win of the season. He has a 0-7-1 record with a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .895 save percentage. It's clear that James Reimer will be Mike Babcock's go-to guy going forward.

Confirming an earlier item, Jonathan Bernier indeed will face the Rangers on Sunday.

Bernier is winless in seven games with 19 goals against and a .899 save percentage, so hopefully you're not in desperate need of a miracle to pull out a victory in fantasy.
Nov 15 - 4:57 PM

Jonathan Bernier is expected to get the nod Sunday against the Rangers.

Still winless through six starts and seven games, Bernier has allowed 19 goals in that time. Which puts his save percentage at just .899. Bernier is not this bad, but he is struggling and the Rangers are on of the best teams in hockey. Hopefully you have alternative options if you're in need of a win tonight.

Toronto coach Mike Babcock was non-committal when asked if Jonathan Bernier would start against the Rangers Sunday night.

It is common for a team to use two goalies when it plays in back-to-back nights as the Leafs are this weekend. However, Babcock would only say that James Reimer would start Saturday night against Vancouver. Perhaps he wants to see how Reimer plays against the Canucks. If he is lights out again as he has been in Toronto's last six games, Babcock may opt to give Reimer a second weekend start. Stay tuned.

Jonathan Bernier participated in his first practice Wednesday after getting cleared to return from a lower-body injury.

He is expected to back up James Reimer Thursday night when the Leafs play at Nashville. Bernier will have to try to wrestle the starting job back away from Reimer, who has played well during his absence, when he gets a chance to play.

Jonathan Bernier (lower body) has been activated from the injured reserve list.

Bernier last played on Oct. 31. He has a 3.02 GAA and .899 save percentage in seven contests this season. He's still searching for his first win of the campaign.
Nov 11 - 5:23 PM

Jonathan Bernier (lower body) participated in Monday's practice.

He left the session at the midway mark and will accompany his teammates on their upcoming road trip. Bernier is still considered day-to-day with a lower-body injury that he sustained on Oct. 31 against Pittsburgh.
Nov 9 - 1:21 PM

Jonathan Bernier (lower body) has been placed on the injured reserve list.

The move is retroactive to Nov. 1, so this doesn't really say much about Bernier's progress. Toronto had already recalled Antoine Bibeau to serve as James Reimer's understudy during Bernier's absence.
Nov 5 - 12:36 PM

Jonathan Bernier (undisclosed) is considered day-to-day.

He didn't take part in Tuesday's practice. Bernier got "bumped" on Saturday and he wasn't feeling 100 percent, so James Reimer started Monday and he played his best game of the young season in a 4-1 win against Dallas. The Leafs have recalled Antoine Bibeau on an emergency basis to fill in for Bernier.
Nov 3 - 1:20 PM

Jonathan Bernier got a big banged up in Saturday's game versus Pittsburgh, but he will be on the bench when James Reimer starts on Monday.

"Bernier got bumped in the last game (Saturday night against Pittsburgh) and isn't feeling as good, so were going to go with Reimer," coach Mike Babcock said after the morning skate. Bernier started back-to-back games for the Leafs on Friday and Saturday and if he wasn't battling something then it looked like he was going to play again against Dallas.

Nov 2 - 4:10 PM

Jonathan Bernier made just 28 stops in Saturday's 4-0 loss to Pittsburgh.

While the first goal against is forgivable given Bernier thought he had frozen the puck before it trickled through, the others were just straight up bad goals to surrender. What's worse, he looked listless and out of focus. Bernier falls to winless in seven starts with 21 goals against and four Really Bad Starts.
Oct 31 - 10:16 PM

Jonathan Bernier will get the start Saturday night against Pittsburgh.

Bernier played very well Friday night in a 3-1 loss to the Rangers and will be rewarded for his effort with a rare back-to-back start. Normally, we would expect James Reimer to get the call in this situation but Toronto coach Mike Babcock likes what he sees in Bernier's game at the moment.
