The best and worst Red Wings of the 2019-20 season: Our awards | Freep

Most Valuable Player

Jonathan Bernier: He gave the Wings a chance to win most nights, especially since Dec. 15 (.915 save percentage, 2.72 goals-against average in 23 games). With Jimmy Howard having such a poor season (.882 save percentage, 4.20 GAA in 27 games; last victory was Oct. 29), Bernier started or appeared in 18 of the last 19 games. The Wings’ minus-122 goal differential is the worst in the NHL by minus-70 (Ottawa checks in at minus-52), but it would be even worse if not for Bernier.

This is absolutely the correct answer.
