Jared Bednar is ticked off at his team again right now. They say we all wear different masks for every few hours of a day, and on Saturday night in Ottawa, after his team’s 6-5 overtime loss to the lowly Senators, Bednar’s mask could have been titled “Exasperation.”
Bednar can’t stand high-scoring games, even the ones they win. Sure, they are going to happen every now and again, and that’s just hockey. But for the Avs to allow six goals to a bad Senators team – even with the top two goalies out, the top defenseman and arguably the team’s best forward – was still a lame excuse to the Avs’ bench boss. If Bednar has one unforgivable sin he can’t abide by, it’s a team that doesn’t work hard enough on the defensive side of the puck.
