Is the goaltending battle that many expected for the LA Kings this season finally in full bloom?
After a rocky start, Jonathan Bernier appears to have found his game. Sunday’s victory over the Ducks gave him back to back wins for the first time this season. And he only gave up one goal in each start.
After the victory over Anaheim, coach Terry Murray remarked, “I will get back to looking at him more, to get back in our rotation.”
Then, Jonathan Quick seemingly one-upped the suddenly-hot Bernier on Monday night, posting a shutout in San Jose against the Sharks – his third of the month.
Which brings us to the question at hand…now what?
The Kings will take tomorrow off and then begin another set of back-to-back games in Phoenix on Wednesday night.
If you were coach Murray, who would you put in net vs. the Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers?
Poll closes Wednesday at noon or as soon as Murray announces his starting netminders.
[UPDATE: Poll is now closed, Murray disagreed with most of you. He’s going with Quick in net vs. the Coyotes and Bernier vs. Philly on Thursday.]
