Jonathan Bernier in goal for Ducks against Predators in Game 6
Makes first Stanley Cup Playoff start in Western Conference Final for injured John GibsonNHL.com @NHLdotcom
Jonathan Bernier will start in goal for the Anaheim Ducks against the Nashville Predators in Game 6 of the Western Conference Final at Bridgestone Arena on Monday.
It will be Bernier's first career start in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Bernier replaced John Gibson, who sustained a lower-body injury, for the final two periods of Game 5 on Saturday and made 16 saves on 18 shots in the Ducks' 3-1 loss.
The Ducks trail the best-of-7 series 3-2. A Predators victory would put them in the Stanley Cup Final for the first time.
Bernier has replaced Gibson three times during the 2017 playoffs, and is 1-1 with a 2.90 goals-against average and .905 save percentage. Three of Bernier's four career playoff games have come this year.
Bernier will not dress. Jhonas Enroth will be the backup.
