Nice piece on Mac Bennett

I ran across this little piece about Mac Bennett going to the Frozen Four, and what it means to him because of his family history. Thought I'd pass it on.

They missed the best part of the story. Here is a snippet of the best part:

Red Fisher described the moment in the Montreal Gazette in 2000: “Time was running out, and so was the Rocket’s attempt to score his 50th. Even the Boston crowd was on its feet when Richard came on the ice for what could have been his last shift of the regular season, his last chance to score the goal. Seconds later, centreman Elmer Lach collided with Boston goaltender Harvey Bennett, leaving Richard with what amounted to an empty net for the milestone goal.’’
Bennett never played another NHL game after that night. The rest of his career was spent in the minors. After finishing up with the Reds, Bennett stayed in Rhode Island. The rest is history and, as you can see, ongoing. That was Mac Bennett's grandfather, Harvey Bennett Sr..
