The Colorado Avalanche didn’t have much to celebrate after losing three straight contests to the Vegas Golden Knights in their second-round series of the second round, but they received some good news earlier Thursday at and a must-win Game 6 showdown in Las Vegas.
In order Emily Kaplan of ESPN, Colorado coach Jared Bednar has been released to work Game 6 after a Scared COVID-19 which involved Bednar producing an irregular test result. He missed skating on Thursday morning, but was hoping for hours before the club’s confirmation that he would finally be behind the bench.
No Avalanche player missed the skateboard due to COVID-19 concerns.
According to Nicholas J. Cotsonika of the NHL website, Bednar did not speak to reporters after learning of the update. However, defender Devon Toews said Thursday’s practice was “practically as usual” with other coaches leading the session.
If the Avalanche can earn their first win since they held a 2-0 series lead, Game 7 against Vegas will take place Saturday night in Colorado.
