Jonathan Bernier earned his sixth consecutive win

by Callie Parmele /

It is not necessarily the number of saves a goaltender makes that can change the course of a game, but how the key saves change the momentum of the contest. 

Colorado Avalanche netminder Jonathan Bernier made a remarkable save in the second period on Monday afternoon with the paddle of his stick to deny Ryan Kesler's wrist shot in a 1-0 game, and Nathan MacKinnon took the puck the other way to score the game-winning goal just 12 seconds later.

Bernier Shines In Dallas

by Ron Knabenbauer @RonKnab /

Goaltender Jonathan Bernier was signed in the offseason to help provide support if Semyon Varlamov couldn't go, and he's filled in more than admirably in the Varlamov's absence. 

Bernier won his fifth consecutive game with a 27-save effort on Saturday night in the Colorado Avalanche's 4-1 victory at the Dallas Stars. The win tied Bernier's career long, as he has won five in a row two previous times, with his last coming March 18-28, 2017.

"It's a big rivalry and these points are huge," said veteran Blake Comeau. "You look at the standings, and we are neck and neck. We can go into the break feeling pretty good about ourselves with a win tonight. That being said, we know that they are going to be a desperate team."
