Also, for those of you saying Benn embellished the hit, it's similar to getting high-sticked in the face. It's a natural instinct, can't really avoid that. He didn't sell it, he simply jerked away and went down, like most people would've done.
Also, he was hit in the nose a bit, which explains the tears on the bench. If you've ever been hit in the nose, you'll know what I'm talking about.
It's extremely rare for anyone of the Stars' to dive. It's just a mentality of the team. Sure, he dove a lot in Montreal, but that was over 5 years ago. You won't see him dive now.
Thanks for stopping by?
