Bernier allowed five goals on 36 shots Tuesday in a 5-2 loss to Carolina.
The game turned in a hurry for Bernier and the Red Wings, who were deadlocked at 2-2 through 40 minutes before Carolina erupted for three unanswered goals on special teams. Bernier had posted a pair of one-goal wins over Chicago and Tampa prior to Tuesday's shelling, but difficult road matchups at Washington and Tampa Bay loom later in the week.
Bernier will tend the home goal for Tuesday's matchup against the Hurricanes.
Bernier continues to garner the starting role over Jimmy Howard, as Tuesday will mark his fifth straight start. In his past five appearances, Bernier has been solid, going 2-1-1 along with a 2.62 GAA and .917 save percentage. The 31-year-old should be busy in net, as the Hurricanes sit third in the league in shots per game this campaign (33.2).
Bernier stopped 33 shots in regulation and overtime and turned aside two of three shootout attempts in Sunday's 5-4 win over the Lightning.
Neither team gave its goalie much help in the defensive end, but Bernier came up big when he needed to, stoning Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov on back-to-back shootout attempts to help secure the victory. The 31-year-old now has a 2.90 GAA and .908 save percentage on the season.

Bernier will make an appearance for the 14th straight game, and he's gone 3-7-1 along with a 2.85 GAA and .911 save percentage in his past 13 appearances. The 31-year-old will draw a difficult matchup against a Tampa Bay offense that leads the league in goals per game this season (3.50).
Bernier allowed just one goal on 33 shots in Friday's 2-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Bernier had gone 0-4-1 over his last five starts, but he put that poor run to rest with an excellent performance. The 31-year-old goalie improved to 14-21-3 with a 2.88 GAA and a .909 save percentage in 44 starts. While it's tough to rely on Bernier to get wins with such a poor Red Wings team in front of him, his ratios are serviceable -- he can be trusted in DFS against weaker teams.
Bernier will protect the home goal Friday against the Blackhawks, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
Bernier has gone five starts without a win, posting an 0-4-1 record with a 3.14 GAA and a .903 save percentage over that span, which includes a relief appearance. The Blackhawks have won five of their last seven games -- it could be an uphill battle for Bernier to get a positive result.
Bernier gave up two goals on 27 shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Avalanche.
For his part, Bernier did a good job in goal, but a lack of support stuck him with the loss. He's tasted defeat in each of his last five starts (0-4-1), and he now has a 13-21-3 record with a 2.92 GAA and a .907 save percentage through 43 appearances. Bernier isn't likely to rack up many wins, but his ratios are solid given the circumstances of this year's Red Wings team.
Bernier will tend the home twine for Monday's clash with Colorado, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.
Bernier will make an appearance for the 12th straight game Monday, and he's gone 0-3-1 along with a 3.37 GAA and .899 save percentage in his past five. It will likely be a stiff test for the 31-year-old, facing an Avalanche offense that ranks third in the league in goals per game this campaign (3.44). It's smart to avoid the Red Wings goaltenders of late, as the team is just 1-8-1 in its last 10 games.
Bernier made 36 saves in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Senators on Saturday.
Bernier hasn't won since Feb. 18 and finishes the month with a 3-8-1 record. Detroit is the class of the NHL basement and Bernier's record reflects that. Three words: avoid, avoid, avoid.
Bernier will start Saturday's road game versus Ottawa, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
With just a single win in his previous nine starts, Bernier should not be in any fantasy starting lineups. The last time he played, Bernier gave up two goals on nine shots during a relief appearance. Ottawa, like Detroit, is a rebuilding club that has struggled to win in 2019-20, but being the home team certainly will help in this matchup between two sub-par squads.
Bernier played 27:48 in relief of an ineffective Jimmy Howard in Thursday's 7-1 loss to Minnesota and allowed two goals on nine shots.
The Wild largely played keep-away from the overmatched Red Wings after Bernier's insertion and still managed to pad their lead with two more goals. There's much more to lose than to gain by deploying any Detroit goalie in fantasy given the current state of the team.
Bernier allowed four goals on 31 shots in a 4-1 loss to New Jersey on Tuesday.
Bernier has now allowed three or more goals in seven of his last eight starts. His record following this loss is 13-20-2. Because of how poorly the Red Wings have played in 2019-20, rolling with Bernier in fantasy seems like a tactic bound to end in disaster.
Bernier will get the starting nod at home versus New Jersey on Tuesday, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.
Bernier will make his ninth straight appearance between the pipes, having posted a 2-5-0 record 2.96 GAA and .909 save percentage over that stretch. At some point, coach Jeff Blashill will have to give Jimmy Howard another look, though it seems he is hesitant to do so.
Bernier allowed three goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 4-2 loss to Calgary.
Bernier has started three straight games for the lowly Red Wings but dropped each of the last two. He has just one win in his last seven appearances (1-5-0) and has received more than two goals of offensive support in just one of those outings. Detroit sat out forward Andreas Athanasiou and defenseman Mike Green in advance of Monday's trade deadline, so things aren't likely to get any better for Bernier and the Red Wings the rest of the way.
Bernier will patrol the crease in Sunday's home tilt against Calgary.
Bernier will make his third straight start for Detroit and his 10th in the last 12 games. During this span, he's recorded a 2.63 GAA and .918 save percentage with a 3-6-0 record. The 31-year-old netminder has been one of the few bright spots on the Red Wings this season, but he's still tough to trust in most formats.
Bernier stopped 36 shots in Friday's 4-1 loss to the Islanders.
New York's final goal was scored into an empty net. Once again, Bernier got little help offensively or defensively -- the Wings were outshot 13-2 in the first period alone -- and his best efforts just weren't enough. Since assuming the No. 1 role at the beginning of February, the 31-year-old netminder is 3-6-0 with a 2.63 GAA and .918 save percentage.
Bernier will protect the road goal in Friday's game against the Islanders, Arthur Staple of The Athletic reports.
Bernier has won two of his last five starts, and he's allowed 16 goals in his last six appearances. The Islanders scored just two goals in four games over their most recent road trip -- Bernier could make for a solid fantasy play against a slumping opponent.
Bernier stopped 19 of 22 shots during Tuesday's 4-3 win over Montreal.
Montreal, uncharacteristically, only managed a pedestrian 22 shots on Bernier in Tuesday's loss. The visitors couldn't close to deal and were unable to solve Bernier over the final 20 minutes. Meanwhile, Detroit scored three unanswered goals in the third period to lift itself to a home win. At 13-17-2, the 31-year-old is still a tough play in fantasy.
Bernier will tend the home goal for Tuesday's game against Montreal, Dana Wakiji of the Red Wings' official site reports.
The 31-year-old will make an appearance in goal for the sixth straight time Tuesday, as he's gone 1-3-0 along with a 2.88 GAA and .914 save percentage in his past five games. Bernier could face quite a bit of rubber, as he's facing a Montreal offense that sits second in the league in shots per game this season (34.3).
Bernier stopped 18 of 19 shots after replacing Jimmy Howard midway through the second period in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Penguins.
The 31-year-old had lost his last three starts, including a 4-1 defeat in Boston on Saturday, but turning to Jimmy Howard in this one didn't change the Wings' fortunes. On the season, Bernier now sports a 2.88 GAA and .909 save percentage.
