Goaltending coach Jussi Parkkila handled whistle duties on Thursday morning with Bednar absent.As Nicholas J. Cotsonika of the NHL's website noted, Colorado head coach Jared Bednar missed Thursday's morning skate due to what's being called an "irregularity" with his COVID-19 test result. As of early Thursday afternoon, Bednar's status for the must-win game was up in the air.

The Colorado Avalanche haven't had a lot to celebrate after losing three straight contests to the Vegas Golden Knights in their second-round postseason series but received some good news ahead of Thursday's must-win Game 6 showdown in Las Vegas.

Per Emily Kaplan of ESPN, Colorado coach Jared Bednar has been cleared to work Game 6 following a COVID-19 scare that involved Bednar producing an irregular test result. He missed Thursday's morning skate, but it was hoped hours before the club's confirmation that he'd ultimately be behind the bench.

That's why the Trash & Treasure podcast crew sees Bauer, a white player, advocating for more fun in the game as an important next step. Preps and the college game are filled with emotion. But why not MLB?

No Avalanche players missed out on the skate because of COVID-19 concerns.

According to Nicholas J. Cotsonika of the NHL's website, Bednar did not speak with reporters after learning of the update. However, defenseman Devon Toews said Thursday's practice was "pretty much business as usual" with other coaches leading the session.

If the Avalanche can earn their first victory since they held a 2-0 series lead, Game 7 against Vegas would take place Saturday evening in Colorado.
