Avs anxious, excited to get started on Cup journey



Avs pre-game skate Game 1 STL

The journey to eternal glory starts tonight for the Avs.

The regular season was a 56-game warmup to get to this point. The Avs managed 39 wins and a Presidents’ Trophy during the regular season, but none of those wins—or regular-season accomplishments—matter more than winning the 16 playoff games that it takes to hoist Lord Stanley’s prized possession.

“Guys feel good; they’re excited to play,” Avs head coach Jared Bednar said Monday afternoon. “It’s that time of year where it’s the most fun time to be playing hockey. They’ve put in a lot of hard work behind the scenes over the last few days, lots of meetings, getting prepared, and I think they’re anxious to get out and go play.”
