Two of the four Colorado Avalanche victories so far have been nail-biters, and two have been wild blowouts. No doubt, Jared Bednar would like to see a bit more consistency in the middle as we move on to Game No. 8 tomorrow night at Ball Arena against San Jose.
Bednar has seemed slightly exasperated with his team at times so far, and I’m sure it’s about the consistency thing. What you don’t want as a coach is a team that wins big one night, then lets up the next game, then has to have the whip cracked on it some, then responds with a big game, then lets up again. It’s sort of been that way so far, so for me tomorrow’s game will say something about what this Avs team is really like – at least with the proviso of “hey, it’s still early, let’s not overreact either way.”
