Bernier (upper body) is projected to be scratched for the season finale against the Sabres on Saturday, Dave Hogg of NHL.com reports.
This is an unfortunate way for Bernier to cap off his first season with the Red Wings. Assuming he sits as expected, the Quebec native will finish with a 9-18-5 record, 3.16 GAA and .904 save percentage.
Bernier (upper body) won't dress for Thursday's road game against the Penguins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Jimmy Howard reportedly will make a third consecutive start for Detroit as it vies for a seventh straight win -- which would be the longest such streak in seven-plus seasons for a club that won't be in the playoffs. Bernier's upper-body injury has been particularly unfortunate for the man himself since he played his best in March with a 2.41 GAA and .930 save percentage over seven games.
Bernier (upper body) is still considered day-to-day ahead of Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
The Red Wings only have two games remaining following Tuesday's contest, so it's quite possible that Bernier will simply be shut down for the remainder of the campaign. If that ends up being the case, the 30-year-old netminder will finish the year having compiled a 9-18-5 record while posting a 3.16 GAA and .904 save percentage in 35 appearances.
Bernier (upper body) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Bruins, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Bernier suffered an upper-body injury in Friday's win over the Devils, and he was set to undergo a medical scan after the game. The results of the test haven't been revealed, but it's bad enough to keep Bernier on the shelf. Jimmy Howard will likely start in goal as Bernier looks to get healthy for Tuesday's game versus the Penguins.
Bernier (upper body) will undergo a scan to determine the extent of his injury ahead of Sunday's game against the Bruins, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bernier and Jimmy Howard combined for a shutout over the Devils on Friday, with the former kicking back 18 shots through two periods. Hopefully, this injury isn't serious, as Detroit's backup netminder carried a 2.68 GAA and .923 save percentage through six March contests into Friday's action against New Jersey -- by far his best month of the 2018-19 campaign.
Bernier won't return to Friday's game versus the Devils due to an upper-body injury.
Bernier was sporting a 21-save shutout through two periods, but he was replaced by Jimmy Howard to start the third frame. The Red Wings had a 2-0 lead when Bernier left the game, so he'll walk away with a win if Howard can allows one goal or less. There are no remaining back-to-back games this season for the Red Wings.
Bernier will tend the home twine in Friday's game versus the Devils, Ted Kulfan of The Detroit News reports.
Bernier will get the nod on the second half of back-to-back contests. The journeyman netminder has played well in March with a .923 save percentage and 2.68 GAA, although the offense hasn't done its part, and he posted a 2-3-1 record in that span. The Devils are a promising matchup, as they've scored just seven goals in the last five games.
Bernier stopped 39 of 41 shots in Monday's 3-2 win over the Sharks.
The Red Wings had a goal in each period to prop up Bernier, who bent with two goals against in the third period but did not break. Bernier improved to 8-18-5 with a 3.23 GAA and a .902 save percentage. Bernier and Jimmy Howard have seen an even split of the start for much of March, so Howard would be the best guess for Thursday's start in Buffalo in the first game of a back-to-back.
Bernier will start Monday's road game in San Jose, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bernier will be looking for just his third win of the calendar year, as the Detriot netminder has gone 2-8-3 in 15 appearances since Jan. 1. The two teams have played each other once already in 2018-19, with the Sharks prevailing 5-3 in a game that saw Bernier give up four goals on 36 shots.
Bernier made 19 saves for the Red Wings in a 5-2 loss to the Blues on Thursday.
The Wings are not a good team, so Bernier is stuck trying to bail them out. But he's just a man, not a superhero. Bernier has one win since Feb. 2. The Wings have been eliminated from the postseason now. Maybe it'll mean they will play loose and free hockey until season's end. If so, the Wings' goalies could get a bit more support. But we wouldn't count on it.
Bernier will start in goal Thursday night against host St. Louis, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
It's a bit strange that Bernier will draw the next start for the Red Wings considering the team just bestowed a one-year, $4 million contract extension on No. 1 goalie Jimmy Howard. At any rate, Bernier will go to work against a Blues team that has won only four of the past 10 games but appears destined to earn a playoff spot.
Bernier stopped 41 of 42 shots in Saturday's 2-1 win over the islanders.
It's the second time this season the isles have fired more than 40 shots at Bernier in a game, but the veteran netminder came through with a better result this time and picked up his first win since Feb. 2. He's been alternating starts with Jimmy Howard in March, and Bernier now has a solid 2.51 GAA and .931 save percentage overt his last four outings.
Bernier led the Red Wings out to the ice for pregame warmups Saturday, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports. As a result, he'll be the home starter versus the Islanders.
Bernier has maintained pitiful ratios (3.33 GAA and .899 save percentage) serving as the last line of defense for a Red Wings team with a blue line featuring a unique blend of green prospects and past-their-prime veterans. Suffice it to say, the Canadian netminder won't invite high ownership percentages in DFS facing a playoff-bound Islanders team -- winners of two straight contests and six of the past 10 to complement a plus-33 goal differential on the season.
Bernier stopped 33 of 35 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Montreal.
The 30-year-old goaltender falls to 6-17-5 with a 3.33 GAA and .899 save percentage. Bernier has now lost 10 straight and has not recorded a win since Feb. 2. Stay far away from the Red Wings' netminder if possible.
Bernier will start in goal Tuesday night against host Montreal, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bernier's playing time has been on the rise, as there's not much sense in the Red Wings taxing veteran Jimmy Howard -- who has had his share of minor injuries -- knowing this team is mathematically out of the playoff race. Still, Detroit's No. 2 netminder has lost nine straight games, making him an undesirable fantasy option down the stretch.
Bernier made 30 saves in a 3-2 loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.
He's won twice since Dec. 8. That pretty much sums up Bernier's fantasy value. Gulp.
Bernier will start in goal Saturday against host Tampa Bay, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Bernier has lost eight straight games, and there's not much reason to believe that he'll snap the skid against the league's best team -- one that has defeated the Wings in each of their last 13 meetings. He's 6-15-5 with a 3.39 GAA and .896 save percentage through 29 games.
Bernier allowed four goals on 34 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Avalanche on Tuesday.
The 30-year-old was less than two minutes away from beating the team he played for last season, but instead, he yielded a slap shot from the point with 1:35 left in regulation and then the game-winner in overtime. Bernier has now lost six straight and owns an .890 save percentage in his last eight appearances. He doesn't play regularly, but the 30-year-old has one win since Christmas. Bernier is 6-15-5 with a 3.39 GAA and an .896 save percentage in 29 games this season.
Bernier will defend the road net from the Avalanche on Tuesday, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.
He'll at least try to slow down an Avs team that boasts one of the most fearsome top-line trios in the league, with Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen alone having combined for 164 points on the season. Bernier is 6-15-4 with a 3.37 GAA and .897 save percentage through 23 starts and 28 total games; those numbers make him a desperation play in most fantasy setups on this 10-game slate.
Bernier allowed two goals on 12 shots after replacing Jimmy Howard in Tuesday's 8-1 loss to Montreal.
The Canadiens jumped out to a 5-0 lead and added a sixth goal before Detroit opted to change goalies, bringing Bernier in for Howard. By that point, the game was well in hand, but the loss will not count towards Bernier's record which will remain at 6-15-4 on the season.
