The Kings haven't had much luck lately (four straight losses) and they never win in Nashville (seven straight losses to Preds), so they rolled the dice and let Bernier make his sixth career start in a critical late-season game. The result: both losing streaks ended and Bernier registered his first career shutout in a 2-0 Los Angeles win that reduced the Kings' playoff magic number to six. Bernier (34 saves) made 15 stops in the second period alone while the game was deadlocked 0-0. Bernier, who was recalled just Monday from Manchester of the AHL, earned himself a longer stay with the Kings. "He's going to be on that plane," coach Terry Murray told LAKingsinsider.com.

Ahhh TGC and I can say we remember him when he was a Monarch... cuz next year he will be King! Yes, I will put money on that one!
Puck Daddy has him as the #1 Star for Tuesday... he won against Dallas back in December too. This season Bernie is 2-0-0 in the NHL with 1 shutout!
Oh and did I mention that he is HOT?! ;-) lol, well he is...
