Kings this season vs Phoenix:
October 21, 2010: Quick in goal. Kings lose 4-2.
December 29, 2010: Quick gives up 6 goals on 18 shots. Bernier in relief makes 13/13 saves. Kings lose 6-3.
January 20, 2011: Quick in goal, Kings lose 2-0.
January 22, 2011: Two days later, Quick in goal. Kings barely win 4-3 (Not quite a "bounce back strong" game).
March 3, 2011: Bernier steals a win and shuts out the Coyotes 1-0.
In short, Bernier has not given up a goal to the Coyotes yet this season in 1.5 games.
Meanwhile, Quick has gotten rocked by them. 15 goals in 3.5 games. Not counting the empty-net goals.
This is not a knock on Quick. I'm a fan of Quick and would like to see him in goal vs the Ducks.
But if TM is playing matchups, Bernier should be in goal for this one.
