Impact's Bernier suspended, fined

Patrice Bernier's last-second actions against Toronto FC Wednesday night have cost him a place on the field this weekend.

Bernier was suspended one game and fined an undisclosed amount by the MLS Disciplinary Committee Friday for his reckless challenge from behind on TFC's Ryan Johnson — one that drew a yellow card — in the waning moments of stoppage time in Toronto's 3-0 victory at Stade Saputo. As a result, Bernier, whose form has been as solid as any central midfielder in MLS in recent weeks, will miss out on Montreal's trip to D.C. United Saturday night. He had two goals and five assists in the four games prior to the mid-week loss.

Video of the challenge is after the jump:


Think Bernier deserved the suspension? How do you think this affects the Impact's chances at D.C.?
