On The Road: Game Day In Toronto

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

The Colorado Avalanche is on a three-game trip before the NHL All-Star Break over the weekend.

Bernier Set To Start Against Former Team

Avalanche goaltender makes first trip back to Toronto since trade

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab / ColoradoAvalanche.com

TORONTO--Jonathan Bernier getting the start in net shouldn't be a surprise. He's guarded the Colorado Avalanche's pipes for eight straight games, getting the start in the last six.

Bernier hasn't dropped any of those decisions, with his eight consecutive wins setting a new personal best and helping the Avs win nine games in a row--the best in the league this season.

The Avalanche goaltender's matchup versus the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight will have at least some significance for him, as Bernier will play at Air Canada Centre against his former team for the first time since being traded two summers ago to the Anaheim Ducks.
