Colorado Avalanche coach Jared Bednar has been cleared to be behind the bench for Thursday’s Game 6 of the second-round series versus the host Vegas Golden Knights after missing the morning skate because of a COVID-19 testing irregularity.

Colorado is trying to stave off elimination at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The Avalanche trail 3-2 in the best-of-seven series.

Defenseman Devon Toews said the rest of the coaching staff guided the team’s game-day practice.

“It was pretty much business as usual,” Toews said. “There’s nothing to it, guys, in that standpoint. We come to the rink, we prepare for the game tonight. … We’re ready to go as a group and we’re excited for the challenge.”

Bednar, 49, steered the Avalanche (39-13-4, 82 points) to the Presidents’ Trophy this season, his fifth season at the helm of the team.
