Avs' Berra Pulled Early In Friday's Loss

News: Reto Berra's second start with Colorado was almost as disastrous as the first, as he was pulled after allowing two goals on five shots in a 5-1 loss to the Sharks.
Analysis: After allowing five goals on 27 shots to the Jets on March 19, many thought Reto Berra couldn't fare any worse against the Sharks; they were wrong. With the Avs fighting for the Central Division title in the final weekend of the season, coach Patrick Roy decided he wanted to see Berra one last time this year as J.S. Giguere -- not Berra -- will be dressing as the backup to Semyon Varlamov for the playoffs. The move turned out to be a potentially costly one for Roy, as his third-string netminder now has an atrocious .781 save percentage and 5.83 GAA with the Avs and they now need to beat Anaheim on Sunday to guarantee the division crown.

Avs' Berra To Start Friday

News: Reto Berra is slated to start Friday's road game against San Jose, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: With the Avs currently juggling three goalies, Reto Berra is scheduled to make just his second start since coming over from Calgary at the trade deadline 17 games ago. He was lit up for five goals on 27 shots by the Jets on March 19, but will be counted on to bounce back strong by the Avs who find themselves gunning for the Central Division title in the final week of the season. Colorado's starter for Sunday's regular season finale in Anaheim is still yet to be determined by coach Patrick Roy, so Berra could garner some consideration if plays well against the Sharks - especially if the Avs are able to lock up a desirable playoff seed by then.

Avs' Berra To Face Sharks Next Week

News: Reto Berra is scheduled to start next Thursday's game against the Sharks, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy said Thursday that he intends to rest Semyon Varlamov next week, and will give Reto Berra and fellow backup Jean-Sebastien Giguere at least one final start each prior to the start of the playoffs. With Giguere expected to retire at the end of this season, Berra is poised to become the Avs' full-time backup netminder behind Varlamov beginning next season.

Avs' Berra Won't Dress For Playoffs

News: Reto Berra will not dress for the playoffs following the news that head coach Patrick Roy will go with J.S. Giguere as the backup in the playoffs, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Reto Berra has made just one start since being traded to the Avs on March 5. He didn't take advantage of his opportunity either, allowing five goals on 27 shots. Giguere's experience may have also been a factor in the decision.

Berra Suffers Overtime Loss In Avs Debut

News: Reto Berra made his first start with the Avs on Tuesday, stopping just 22-of-27 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to the Jets.
Analysis: The 27-year-old rookie netminder hadn't played in 9 games, so his dreary .815 save percentage in his Avalanche debut can be chalked up to a combination of both rust and nerves. The Avs have floundered on the goaltending front lately, with Reto Berra, J.S. Giguere and No. 1 starter Semyon Varlamov each recording losses in the last four games. Even worse, the Avs skaters pitched in a plentiful 11 goals in the three losses to Anaheim, Montreal and Winnipeg, so coach Patrick Roy will be none too pleased with the squandering of offense by his trio of backstoppers. He'll almost certainly turn to the 34-win Varlamov to right the ship Friday against the surging Bruins who have won nine straight.

Avs Turn To Berra On Wednesday

News: Reto Berra will start Wednesday's game against the Jets, the Avs' official site reports.
Analysis: Rolling with Reto Berra (whose last start came on March 3 while he was with Calgary) on Wednesday will give Semyon Varlamov another game off, after Jean-Sebastien Giguere drew the start for the Avs against the Canadiens on Tuesday.

Avs' Berra Signs 3-Year Extension

News: Reto Berra has signed a three-year extension with the Avalanche, the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Expected to make his Avs debut Wednesday (March 19) against the Jets, Reto Berra gets a contract before ever suiting up for his new team. He may not see another start this season, but with Jean Sebastien-Giguere's contract expiring at the end of the campaign, Berra makes sense as the Avs' No. 2 goaltender of the future.

Berra To Make First Start With Avs Next Week

News: Reto Berra will make his first start with the Avalanche next Wednesday against the Jets, Adrian Dater of the Denver Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Patrick Roy will use the Avs' back-to-back next week against the Canadiens and Jets to give starting goalie Semyon Varlamov some needed rest, with Jean-Sebastien Giguere getting the nod vs. Montreal. Giguere's presence on the roster hurts Reto Berra's chances of picking up much spare duty behind Varlamov, but it seems apparent Berra is viewed as the No. 2 of the future between the two backups. Giguere has previously suggested that he might retire after the season, when his contract will expire.

Berra Traded To Avs

News: The Flames have sent Reto Berra to the Avalanche in exchange for a second-round choice in the 2014 draft, TSN.ca reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old Reto Berra played in 29 games for the Flames prior to the trade, recording a 9-17-2 record, with a 2.95 GAA and .897 save percentage. He'll bolster the Avs' goaltending depth, with veteran Jean-Sebastien Giguere's deal set to expire after the season, the Denver Post reports.

Flames' Berra Lets In Three In Loss

News: Reto Berra stopped 24 of the 27 shots he faced in a loss to the Wild on Monday.
Analysis: Reto Berra had been enjoying a nice run of play, having let in two goals or less in his four starts before this one. However, he still only has a .897 save percentage on the season, and that is simply bad.

Flames' Berra Will Start Monday

News: Reto Berra will start between the pipes Monday against the Wild, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: Reto Berra's 9-16-2 record isn't great, but he has been playing better of late. He has won three of his last five starts, giving up just nine total goals over that span.

Berra Stones Oilers As Flames Steal A Win

News: Reto Berra stopped 21 of the 22 shots he saw Saturday to claim his ninth win of the campaign, a 2-1 overtime victory at Edmonton.
Analysis: His season-long numbers (2.94, .898) are nothing to get excited about, but there are signs that he's turning his season around. In his last four starts, he's posted an impressive 1.51, .941 while going just 2-2-0 due to an anemic Calgary offense. We don't recommend him as a front-line starter unless you're desperate or you play with some unusual league rules, but don't write him off as a long-term prospect.

Flames' Berra To Start Saturday

News: Reto Berra will start in goal Saturday against the Oilers.
Analysis: Reto Berra has had a tough go of it this season (8-16-2 record, .896 save percentage), but he did end the first half on somewhat of a high note, with three wins in his last six starts. Also, he's been very good in three starts against Edmonton this season, allowing just five goals on 81 shots (1.66 GAA).

Flames' Berra Outstanding In Loss

News: Reto Berra only allowed one goal on 31 shot attempts in Friday's 1-0 loss to Sweden.
Analysis: Reto Berra was brilliant between the pipes against a solid Sweden offense. He didn't yield a goal until into the third period. The Swiss also have Jonas Hiller as an option in net, so they will have a decision to make for Saturday's pivotal matchup with the Czech Republic.

Flames' Berra Expected To Start For Swiss

News: Reto Berra is expected to start for Switzerland on Friday vs. Sweden, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: In saving top netminder Jonas Hiller for Saturday's showdown with the Czech Republic, it appears the Swiss aren't confident they can beat the powerful Swedish team. Switzerland just doesn't have the horses to compete offensively with Sweden, making it hard to bank on Reto Berra delivering a strong outing when he often struggles against teams with far less talent than what he'll face Friday.

Flames' Berra Falls To Flyers On Saturday

News: Reto Berra surrendered two goals on 23 shot attempts as the Flames fell to the Flyers by a 2-1 count on Saturday.
Analysis: Although his mates outshot the opposition by a 32-21 margin, Reto Berra didn't have any support until Matt Stajan scored with 2:26 left in the game. Not much was expected from Berra upon assuming the starting gig in place of the injured Karri Ramo, but he's given up two or fewer goals in each of his three turns. The improved performance gives him some confidence heading into the Winter Olympics, where he'll play for the Swiss team.

Flames' Berra To Start Saturday

News: Reto Berra will start in goal for Saturday's game against the Flyers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 reports.
Analysis: Reto Berra has had a bit of a rough first season in the NHL, but has been showing signs of improvement in recent games in net, winning three of his last five games. He lost his only previous appearance against the Flyers this season.

Berra Strong In Flames Win

News: Reto Berra stopped 28 of 30 in a win over the Islanders on Thursday.
Analysis: That's two straight games with a save percentage over .900 for Reto Berra, who is bearing the workload since Karri Ramo went down with a MCL injury on February 1. With the Flames winning six of their last seven, Berra doesn't look like a terrible start right now.

Reto Berra

Flames' Berra Will Start Thursday

News: Reto Berra will start in net Thursday against the Islanders.
Analysis: It's been a struggle this season for Reto Berra, as he'll enter the game with a .894 save percentage and a 3.11 GAA. He'll look to turn things around Thursday as the Isles travel to Long Island.

Flames' Berra Allows Just One, Still Loses

News: Reto Berra allowed only one goal on 26 shots Tuesday against Montreal, but was one-upped by Carey Price, who stopped 27 in a shutout on the other end.
Analysis: Such is the life of a Calgary netminder. The No. 1 role may be Reto Berra's to roll with now that Karri Ramo's out long-term, but even on the rare nights that he delivers good rate stats, Berra stands a strong chance of losing behind the inconsistent Calgary offense. Tuesday marks the fifth time the Flames have been shut out in 23 Berra starts.

Reto Berra

Flames Tab Berra For Tuesday Start

News: Reto Berra will be in the crease Tuesday against the Canadiens, Sportsnet 960 The Fan's Pat Steinberg reports.
Analysis: This could be the first of many starts to come for Reto Berra, as Karri Ramo was diagnosed with an MCL injury Monday and will be out until after the Olympic break. Berra received some run as the regular starter earlier in the season, but with a 7-14-2 record, 3.20 GAA, and .891 save percentage, he offers very little intrigue outside of deep formats or leagues that start multiple goalies.

Calgary's Berra Wins In Relief

News: Reto Berra was summoned from the bench late in the first frame of Saturday's contest against Minnesota, after starter Karri Ramo was injured. From there, he did just enough to win, stopping 14 of 17 shots to carry the Flames to a 4-3 overtime win.
Analysis: The injury may give Reto Berra's starting chances a boost, even if this ugly win won't.
