This is a parity-driven league. Almost every game is a grind, almost always one that goes down to the wire. Such was your Avalanche-Buffalo Sabres tilt tonight at the Pepsi Center.
I thought it was a fast, fairly entertaining game, probably a little too entertaining for Jared Bednar’s taste. But the Avs won it, 3-2.
Speaking of entertaining and Bednar, how about that jacket he sported tonight?
No, Bedsy didn’t lose a bet. That’s a camouflage-style jacket, which makes sense because it was Military Appreciation Night (as always veterans, including those who serve now – and first responders – your membership is free here if you want to join up).
Also: Bednar has a buddy who runs a clothing company. He asked if he would like to receive the complimentary jacket and wear it for the world to see, and Bednar obliged.
