Jonathan Bernier is bearing most of the blame for the Leafs' latest loss, as a 150-foot goal from Oliver Ekman-Larsson spurred an Arizona comeback in a 3-1 defeat.
It is the sixth straight loss for Bernier, and the fourth time in his past five games where he's allowed three goals. Truth be told, Bernier does not deserve a lot of the blame from Thursday's loss, as he was peppered with 45 shots and stopped 42 of them. Jan 30 - 12:44 AM

Date:

Jonathan Bernier will be in Toronto's crease again Thursday night.

He will play against the Arizona Coyotes after he stopped 22 of the 23 shots he faced in Wednesday's 2-1 shootout loss to New Jersey. Bernier hasn't picked up a win in his last five appearances (0-4-1), but he hasn't received much offensive support either.
Jan 29 - 11:34 AM

Goaltender Jonathan Bernier turned in a solid effort but didn't get much support from his struggling Toronto teammates in the Maple Leafs' 2-1 shootout loss to the Devils in New Jersey Wednesday night.

After allowing at least three goals in each of his last three starts, Bernier allowed only one goal in this one, but it came with only 2:50 left in the third period, tying the game at 1-1. After a goalless overtime, the Devils prevailed in the shootout. Bernier made 22 saves but the Leafs had trouble scoring against New Jersey goalie Cory Schneider, who made 29 saves. The Leafs have lost seven consecutive games, yet Bernier's record is still above .500, at 16-14-4. His goals-against average is .270 and his save percentage, .914. We recommend you stay away from Bernier in fantasy leagues or even one-night fantasy games, not because he's bad but because the team in front of him has become downright lamentable.

Jonathan Bernier will get the nod for the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday.

Bernier will try to bounce back after allowing at least three goals in each of his last three contests. He hasn't won a game since Jan. 9 as the Maple Leafs have fallen on hard times.
Jan 28 - 12:14 PM

Maple Leafs goalie Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 13 shots in the first and second periods before he was yanked and replaced by James Reimer in Toronto's 4-1 loss to the visiting Carolina Hurricanes.

Bernier's in a slump. He now has lost four games in a row and six of his past seven. His record has fallen to 16-14-3 and his goals-against average has bloated to 2.76. His save percentage is .914. His teammates certainly haven't been helping him lately, but if Bernier's your fantasy goalie, it might be time for a change, if possible. James Reimer, incidentally, replaced in the first minute of the second period Monday, after Eric Staal scored to increase Carolina's lead to 3-0. Reimer made 14 saves and did not allow a goal.
Jan 19 - 11:11 PM

Jonathan Bernier will be in goal for Toronto on Monday against Carolina.

He has lost five of his past six outings to give him a 16-13-3 record on the year. Bernier has lost his last three starts, but Toronto's offense has been shut out in all of those matches. He could desperately use some goal support.
Jan 19 - 10:42 AM

Jonathan Bernier made 30 saves in Toronto’s 3-0 loss to the Blues on Saturday night.

It’s almost as if the Leafs forgot how to score since Randy Carlyle was fired, with just eight goals in six games. Bernier has lost three consecutive tilts. He has a 2.70 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. New coach or not, the Leafs’ issue remains roster makeup.
Jan 17 - 10:55 PM

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

It's certainly not Bernier's fault the Leafs are losing as of late as he has received virtually no offensive support. The Toronto netminder will have a difficult assignment Saturday night facing a very talented and balanced St. Louis team. It might be prudent to sit Bernier if you have another goaltending option.
Jan 17 - 11:57 AM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 21-of-24 shots in a 4-0 loss to Anaheim on Wednesday.

Bernier couldn't be faulted for this loss as the three goals he allowed were on a two advantage, a redirect in front of him, and a 60 foot breakaway to Corey Perry. He has just one win his last four starts but a lot of his failures have been due to the horrible defensive play in front of him. He is still the number one goalie on this team but the future doesn't look too bright for any goalie in Toronto unless the defensive coverage gets better.
Jan 15 - 1:03 AM

Jonathan Bernier will be back in net for the Leafs Wednesday night in Anaheim.

Bernier will be making his fourth consecutive start where he will look to improve upon his 16-10-3 record, 2.73 goals-against-average, and .916 save percentage on the year. The Leafs netminder last faced the Ducks back on December 16th where he stopped 40 of 42 shots, earning the victory.

Jan 14 - 6:48 PM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 18 of 19 shots but it wasn't enough as Toronto fell to Los Angeles by a score of 2-0.

Bernier wasn't very busy tonight, but he did play well. The Leafs' goaltender surrendered a goal to Anze Kopitar just 37 seconds into the game, but he was perfect the rest of the way (Los Angeles' second goal was scored into an empty net). Toronto showed more of a commitment to playing well in their own end, but they were unable to beat Kings' goaltender Martin Jones. Bernier has lost three of his last four starts, but he has only surrendered more than two goals in one of those games. His record falls to 16-11-3 on the season. He has a 2.67 goals-against-average and a .917 save percentage.
Jan 13 - 1:27 AM

Jonathan Bernier stopped 18 of 20 shots in Toronto's 5-2 win over Columbus.

Columbus' forward Ryan Johansen beat Bernier just 3:15 into the game to give the Jackets the lead, but the Leafs stormed back with four unanswered goals in the period. The win is Bernier's first of 2015. The 26-year-old improves his overall record to 16-10-3 this season. He has a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage.
Jan 9 - 10:46 PM

Jonathan Bernier will get the start against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

Having lost eight of their last ten games, the Leafs come in sitting tied with the Panthers three points outside of the second Wild Card slot in the East. With 75 goals against through 29 games this season, Bernier is going to have to be a big part of the turn-around if the Leafs are going to play come May.
Jan 9 - 5:41 PM

Jonathan Bernier allowed five goals on 25 shots in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to Washington.

The post-Randy Carlyle era hasn't gotten off to the best start in Toronto. The game was tied early in the second period when Washington exploded for three goals on 14 shots. Bernier has now lost four of his last six starts and has given up at least three goals in five of those six games. The 26-year-old has a 15-10-3 record with a 2.75 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage.
Jan 7 - 10:13 PM

Jonathan Bernier will start against Capitals on Wednesday.

Bernier is having a solid season with 15 wins in 24 starts and 28 games, plus he's posting a 2.67 GAA and .920 save percentage. The Leafs, who have 45 standings points, come in still sandwiched between the Rangers (46) and the Bruins (44), and Panthers (43) for the second Wild Card slot. Needless to say, a win, especially a regulation win, will go a long way towards playing hockey come May.
