“The Better We Check, the More We’re Going to Score” – Jared Bednar remains mystified why his Avs players don’t realize this



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.
