ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Anaheim Ducks backup goalie Jonathan Bernier replaced John Gibson at the start of the second period in Saturday's Game 5 of the Western Conference finals against the Nashville Predators, apparently due to an injury.
Gibson wasn't on the bench later in the period, but the team made no immediate announcement about his status.
He had stopped all 10 shots he faced in the contest before exiting. Coming into the contest, he was 9-5 with a 2.65 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in the postseason.
Bernier appeared in two previous playoff games this year, going 1-0 with a 2.82 goals against average and a .911 save percentage.
