If goaltending keeps being the obvious reason for losses, I don't think Sakic will fire Bednar over that. If they go back to having poor starts, making bad passes, and taking bad penalties he could be in trouble. You have to think they need at least one win on this road trip to save his job. That would be another five game losing streak on the heels of a six game losing streak. 1 win in 11 games. That's tough for any coach with playoff expectations to survive, even if he's not to blame.
