Bernier allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Ducks’ loss in Los Angeles last Saturday. John Gibson still isn’t ready to go following their bye week, so Bernier will make his fourth straight start tonight vs. his former team. He has allowed three goals in each of his previous three starts while posting an ugly .866 SV%.
The Ducks have signed Logan Shaw to a one-year deal worth $650K.
Shaw has registered just five points (2G / 3A) in 43 games with the Ducks this season. During his time in the AHL, Shaw has four goals and two assists (six points) in 15 games with Springfield and San Diego.
Bernier allowed three goals on 29 shots in the Ducks’ win over the Bruins on Wednesday. With John Gibson out, Bernier will start again this afternoon in Los Angeles. Bernier has gone 5-5-1 with a 3.40 GAA and .888 SV% on the road this season and remains a risky start this afternoon.
Gibson was expected to start on Wednesday after finishing Monday's game with 14 saves in relief, but he is now day-to-day with a mysterious lower-body injury. With Gibson sidelined, Jonathan Bernier will get the nod and Jhonas Enroth has been recalled to be his backup.
With John Gibson day-to-day with a lower-body injury, Bernier will start for a second straight game, despite being yanked after a terrible outing on Monday. Bernier was pulled after allowing three gaols on six shots in a loss in Arizona and now carries a 2.93 GAA and .901 SV% in 22 appearances this season.
Gibson will likely start Wednesday vs. the Bruins.
Gibson stopped all 14 shots that he faced in relief of Jonathan Bernier in the Ducks loss in in Arizona on Monday. It was a nice performance from Gibson, who was coming off of a 24-save shutout the night before. He comes into tonight’s game having stopped the last 38 shots he has faced, but will be in tough vs. a strong Bruins offence.
The Ducks have recalled Nicolas Kerdiles from San Diego (AHL).
Kerdiles, 23, has registered four goals with five assists (nine points) in 10 games with San Diego. The former second round pick (36th overall in 2012) could make his NHL debut on Wednesday as he’s skating with Corey Perry and Rickard Rakell in the Ducks’ morning skate.
Montour likely drawing back into the Ducks lineup on Monday.
Montour was a healthy scratch on Sunday, but will draw back into the lineup tonight in Arizona. Montourhas one goal, one assist and is averaging 1.90 shots on goal per game in his first 11 games of the season.
