It's not all about Jonathan Bernier 

October, 20, 2010

Los Angeles Kings rookie stopper Jonathan Bernier is scheduled to get his second start of the new season tonight against the visiting Carolina Hurricanes; head coach Terry Murray has an early-season plan to get Bernier about 25 starts this year behind incumbent No. 1 Jonathan Quick, who has been terrific in the early going.

In his first game, Bernier stopped 29 of 31 shots during a low-scoring loss to the Calgary Flames. He skates into a good spot tonight, behind a rested team against a travel-weary Carolina squad that played last night. On home ice, a good team -- and that's what we think the Kings are -- takes care of business. With his three late-season victories last year now a fading memory, Bernier needs to put up a W tonight.

Here are a few thoughts about the other six rookie goalies that have seen action in the early part of the season.
