Berube was reassigned to AHL Rockford on Sunday. Overall, Berube's NHL season wasn't flattering with a .894 save percentage and 3-6-1 record in 13 outings. However, he showed flashes of becoming a formidable backup, as the 26-year-old highlighted his season with two wins of over 30 saves. Berube will be eligible for the Calder Cup Playoffs if AHL Rockford clinches a spot.
Berube stopped 31 of 34 shots Friday, taking a 4-1 defeat against the Blues. Berube couldn't get the job done against St. Louis this time around. Granted, he got little help from an offense that barely tested the opposition, but either way, he's now conceded three or more goals in five straight games. He should only be used in extreme situations.
Berube will guard the cage in Friday's home game against the Blues, Scott Powers of The Athletic Chicago reports. Berube was solid in Wednesday's road matchup with St. Louis, turning aside 31 of the 34 shots en route to a 4-3 victory. The Blues, who have lost four consecutive games, are in desperate need of a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, so they'll undoubtedly plan on testing Berube early and often in Chicago. The 26-year-old netminder has struggled in limited action this season, compiling a 3-5-1 record while posting a subpar 3.84 GAA and .893 save percentage in 12 appearances, so St. Louis should have plenty of opportunities to score Friday night.
Berube made 31 saves on 34 shots in a 4-3 win over the Blues on Wednesday. This counts as a relatively good outing for Berube, as he came into this game with a 3.84 GAA and .893 save percentage. Additionally, this is the 26-year-old's first win in seven outings. The goaltending situation in Chicago has been a mess since Corey Crawford got hurt, and it wouldn't be surprising to see Berube elsewhere after this season ends.
Berube will guard the cage in Wednesday's road game against St. Louis, Eric Lear of the Blackhawks' official site reports. Berube has struggled in limited action this season, compiling a 2-5-1 record while posting an ugly 3.93 GAA and .891 save percentage in 11 appearances. The 26-year-old netminder will hope to get on track in a road matchup with a slumping Blues team that's lost three consecutive games.
