Bernier after his first regulation loss of the season

Jonathan Bernier Kings Wild MayorsManor
Following the Kings 2-1 loss in Minnesota on Tuesday, here’s what goalie Jonathan Bernier had to share…

– On if he could tell the Wild were desperate: “Yeah, obviously I felt our effort wasn’t great tonight.  And in this league if you don’t show up, most nights you’re going to lose.  And that’s what happened tonight.  You know we just gotta bounce back.  We got a big game tomorrow against Detroit, and we gotta make sure we’re very sharp and we work hard, because that’s going to go in the playoffs.  Make sure our game is where it should be at.”

– On the two quick goals: “You know they were putting on a lot of pressure in the first.  We made some good plays, we made some bad plays.  That’s hockey.  From my standpoint, that second one I definitely gotta make sure I stop that one, and…At least we came back and gave a pretty good effort.”

– On the team’s reputation for being able to come back: “We showed it last year in the playoffs.  That’s the type of team we are.  We have a lot of character.  You know, our team is very well spread.  We have some skills guys and some guys that work really hard.  That’s what makes it hard playing against us.”

  1. I’m saddest about Bernier getting the loss tonight. His team didn’t show up in front of him so he wound up with the L but I thought he played pretty well.

  2. KingsFan on EastCoastTime says:

    Bernie put in an amazing effort… props to him for sure!
