Reto Berra made 12 saves in relief action during Colorado's 5-3 loss to Ottawa on Wednesday.

Berra was called into action early in the second period and held his team in the game, allowing just the one goal. The Avalanche goaltending situation just has not been a strong one so far and we are likely to see Berra in more games as head coach Patrick Roy finds something that works.

Reto Berra will start for Colorado on Thursday against Pittsburgh.

Berra has a 1.83 GAA and .942 save percentage in nine contests this season. This will be just his second career start against Pittsburgh as he last played against the Penguins on Jan. 11, 2014 when he was a member of the Calgary Flames. He turned aside 24 of 26 shots in that game.
Nov 19 - 1:15 PM

Reto Berra was pulled after allowing four goals on 26 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to Toronto.

The 28-year-old has a 4-4-0 record with a 1.83 goals-against-average and a .942 save percentage. Expect those numbers to fall significantly as the season goes on.

Reto Berra kicked out 39 of 40 shots in a 6-1 victory Saturday night.

Berra has won three straight games, allowing just three goals over that span. Although he began the season as the Avalanche's clear backup, he's been one of the league's top goaltenders this season with a 1.50 GAA and .953 save percentage in eight contests.
Nov 14 - 11:03 PM

Reto Berra will once again be between the pipes when the Avalanche face off against the Canadiens in Montreal.

Berra has been impressive in six starts posting a 1.58 goals against average and a .948 save percentage despite winning only three of six games. He will be in tough tonight against the NHL's best team, though.
Nov 14 - 12:06 PM

Reto Berra denied all but two of the 27 shots directed his way on Thursday night in Colorado's 3-2 win over Boston.

Despite a 3-3 record, Berra has been very effective this season. He has a .948 save percentage and 1.58 goals against average, which makes it much easier for head coach Patrick Roy to give injured starter Semyon Varlamov all the time he needs to come back from a groin injury.
Nov 12 - 11:15 PM

Reto Berra will make his third straight start Thursday.

He was probably going to play against Boston anyway, but his start was cemented by Semyon Varlamov's groin injury. Calvin Pickard will serve as Berra's understudy while Varlamov recovers.

Coach Patrick Roy said after Tuesday's win over Philadelphia that Reto Berra would "probably" get the call for Thursday's match against Boston.

If he gets the nod then it will be his third straight start. Berra has been very good in the early going for the Avalanche and it's opened more opportunities for him to play because of Semyon Varlamov's struggles.

Nov 11 - 9:32 AM

Reto Berra stopped all 25 shots he faced in Tuesday's 4-0 win over Philadelphia.

Berra was solid but it's not like the Flyers put up much a fight in this game. The win puts an end to Berra's personal three-game losing streak. The 28-year-old has a 2-3-0 record with a 1.50 goals-against-average and a .952 save percentage. Semyon Varlamov's presence limits Berra's fantasy value.
Nov 10 - 10:32 PM

Reto Berra will be between the pipes for Colorado on Tuesday night.

He will face the Philadelphia Flyers in his fifth start of the season. Berra has one win in five appearances, but he has an impressive .943 save percentage and a 1.85 goals-against average.
