Toronto goes back to Bernier

Jonathan Bernier will be in net for the Leafs’ first game after the All-Star break when they take on the Devils tonight at Prudential.

Bernier hasn’t been very good lately, and is looking for redemption after getting pulled against Carolina in his last outing. He surrendered three goals on 13 shots before giving way to James Reimer versus the ‘Canes, but his slump dates back even earlier; Bernier has lost each of his last three starts, posting a 3.05 GAA and .888 save percentage over that stretch.

For the Devils, Cory Schneider will get the start in goal.

Penguins at Capitals: Marc-Andre Fleury for Pittsburgh, Braden Holtby likely for Washington.

‘Hawks at Kings: Corey Crawford for Chicago, Jonathan Quick likely for L.A.
