Bernier empathizes with Quick’s tough night

After last night’s game, Terry Murray said he wouldn’t alter his goalie plan and would stay with Jonathan Bernier as tonight’s starting goalie against Philadelphia. Jonathan Quick allowed six goals on 18 shots last night, and was pulled midway through the second period in favor of Bernier, who stopped all 13 shots he faced. Of course, the score was 6-3 by that point, and much of the intensity was taken out of the game, but it’s worth noting that Bernier made a handful of quality stops. In his last three appearances, Bernier has stopped 60 of 62 shots. After the game, Bernier said he “felt good” but was empathetic to Quick’s evening…

BERNIER: “I don’t think Quickie played bad at all. It’s just the way that the puck was going for them. They made some good plays, and that’s just the way it goes.”
