Weekes: Maple Leafs' Bernier under most pressure

NHL Network analyst Kevin Weekes joined NHL Live from Toronto to give his take on the goaltending around the League entering the first week of the season.

When asked which goalie faces the most pressure on a nightly basis, Weekes brought up Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, but he believes neither is under more duress than Jonathan Bernier of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

"The pressure [in Toronto] is immense. You can cut it with a knife," Weekes said. "[The Maple Leafs] don't defend very well. That was something that was their Achilles' heel last season, yielding north of 35 shots per game, very difficult for any goalie to be able to be successful, let alone to be a top-10 guy in save percentage (.923) the way Bernier was under that type of nightly duress from a shot standpoint.
