He had to be carried off the ice, That was Bennetts last game in the NHL, as he never really recoved from that injury. Playing all of 15 professional games the rest of his career. Very sad to see something like that again.
Yeah, that was a tough hit. I kind of figured that was the end of Bennett's career. Sad to see.
The game had a lot of interesting stuff in it. Aside from Graves getting 50 and 51, Richter stoned Scott Pearson all seven times. He made some amazing saves.
Then you had Gretzky scoring #802 to break Howe's record later announced in Edmonton to which the fans stood up and cheered.
Plus some good young Oilers like McAmmond, Maltby (bet they wish they kept him), Arnott and Marchant (who came over for MacTavish).
Even a young Fred Brathwaite came in when Ranford got hurt.
Also, anyone noticed how well Kovalev played? Man.
