DetroitRedWings.com’s Dana Wakiji spoke with Red Wings goaltender Jonathan Bernier regarding his summertime training:
“I probably skated, I was on the ice around June and working on little details, post work,” Bernier said. “I thought we were getting a lot of shots from low to high so I kind of worked on that. You just train hard and you make sure that physically you’re ready to go.”
Bernier played in 35 games last season, 30 starts, and went 9-18-5 with a 3.16 goals-against average and .904 save percentage.
Bernier seemed to get in more of a groove when he and Jimmy Howard alternated starts for a while late in the season but there’s no guarantee of a specific workload this season.
“Obviously, I think it’s a lot easier to feel confident and being focused on the game but I gotta find a way when I don’t play a lot to come in and be sharp like I was playing every night,” Bernier said.
