Bernier

Game outlook: I dunno why I get an "Oh, WHAT?!" vibe off the decision to play Jonathan Bernier, from the Washington reporters at least. Guess what? He beat you last time, and only gave up one goal in the process. There was all sorts of handwringing afterwards, but LA beat you fair and square.

The Caps are a good team, but there's no reason to act like it's inconceivable to play him or something. Hmmph.

Please do this for JB, boys.
