Red Wings goalkeeper Jonathan Bernier (Jonathan Bernier) scored 50 saves in Detroit on Saturday, creating a new personal mark, but the Dallas Stars still found a way to win 2-1 in overtime. Quebec’s difficult situation to digest.
Bernier received encouragement from his teammates after the game-perhaps a little apologized-in the 13 seasons of the National Hockey League (NHL), standing in front of the cage in similar games did not recall.
“Obviously, it was a big game, but it was my job to stop ice hockey,” Bernier said in a video conference after the duel. It is difficult to provide such a performance without winning. “
The Laval also accepted the kind words of his head coach Jeff Blashill, but he said that the number of shots does not really represent the rhythm of the game, except in the second stage.
“I thought he was good. He was in the game. He swallowed a lot of hockey pucks. He was crowded. He stopped all the shots that needed to be stopped. Bernier’s pilot said he was excellent.
However, Bernier did not fight against his teammates. Although they were almost eliminated mathematically, they still had to play six games. However, he believes that the team can get better, and the motivation and pride to play for a club with a long history must remain strong.
“We know we are a better team than we have shown [samedi].We know these games are important to the team [qui luttent pour une place en séries éliminatoires], But they also apply to us. We play for Red Wings and fight for a great organization, and you must be proud of it. “
