Bernier noticed by Hockey News: "In Game 4, Bernier handed the Bears their first shutout of the playoffs and their first blanking overall since a loss at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in February. Over the first two playoff rounds, Hershey ravaged the Bridgeport and Albany defenses for a robust 4.44 goals per game and had the power play cranking at a 25 percent rate. Manchester’s penalty-kill, however, has allowed just two goals on 17 Hershey opportunities. And Bernier has shaved Hershey’s offensive output to just 2.25 goals per game."
