Colorado Avalanche hasn’t had much to celebrate after losing three straight games to the Vegas Golden Knights in their second-round postseason series, but it got some good news ahead of Thursday’s must-see Game 6 showdown in Las Vegas.
For Emily kaplan From ESPN, Colorado coach Jared Bednar was cleared to work in Game 6 following a COVID-19 scare that involved Bednar producing an irregular test result. He missed the morning skating on Thursday, but was waited hours before the club’s confirmation that he would finally be behind the bench.
No Avalanche player missed skateboarding due to COVID-19 concerns.
According to Nicholas J. Cotsonika from the NHL’s website, Bednar did not speak to reporters after learning of the update. However, defender Devon Toews said Thursday’s practice was “pretty much business as usual” with other coaches leading the session.
If the Avalanches can get their first win since holding a 2-0 series lead, Game 7 against Las Vegas would take place Saturday night in Colorado.
