  • Bernier stopped 36 of 40 shots during Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Senators. While the first-round pick of the Kings in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft stood tall despite being besieged by shots, Bernier has now allowed four or more goals in four of his last six starts. Behind a shaky Avalanche defense, he's a risky play most nights so use him sparingly.

  • Bernier will post up between the pipes for Saturday's day game against the "visiting" Senators in Sweden, Dan Rosen of reports. This is the second and final game of the NHL's Global Series event between Ottawa and Colorado. The Senators' Erik Karlsson, who's unequivocally the best Swedish defenseman in the world, dished for two scores in the overtime win Friday. Bernier has done very little to earn the trust of fantasy owners, as he carries a 2-3-0 record, 3.63 GAA and .884 save percentage into this next contest, plus he's fresh off a six-goal shelling at the hands of the Islanders.

  • Bernier allowed six goals on 22 shots in Sunday's loss to the Islanders. Bernier has had a few great outings this season, but he's also had some miserable ones. The 29-year-old backup owns a lackluster .884 save percentage on the year and hasn't made the Avalanche feel comfortable giving starter Semyon Varlamov the night off. With a 2-3-0 record on the season, there are certainly better backups out there if you're looking to fill a goaltending position.

  • Bernier was named the starting goaltender for Sunday's contest against the Islanders, Adrian Dater of reports. With Sunday being the team's second game in as many days, Bernier returns to the net for the first time since Oct. 28 in order to provide rest for Semyon Varlamov. Bernier's stat line is quite unremarkable, with a 2-2-0 record, 3.03 GAA, and .906 save percentage, though it's hard to place blame on the former Maple Leaf. Regardless of who's been in net, the Avs haven't allowed fewer than three goals in a game since Oct. 13.

  • Bernier allowed three goals on 42 shots in a 6-3 victory against the Blackhawks on Saturday. The Avalanche spotted Bernier a 5-0 lead, but the Blackhawks did answer with the next two goals. Then Chicago threw the kitchen sink at Bernier in the third period, though he was mostly up to the task, stopping 20 of 21 shots in the final frame. While it's too bad he had to give up three goals, Bernier owners will take the win and strong save percentage.
