If Jonathan Bernier came down to get himself feeling confident about stopping pucks, he's certainly well on his way to tearing up the NHL when he heads back.

The 22:28 he's playing every night exceeds the 21:31 that was his previous high (in the lockout-shortened season with Colorado) and it otherwise more about 2.25 minutes per night higher than his career average. And so you have to ask: What's the thinking here?
