Highlight Of The Night: Playoff Bennett Continues To Shine

Bennett gave you hope, then the rest of the Flames crushed said hope.

Highlight Of The Night

Just when they sucked you back in.....the inevitable happens. But with that said, Sam Bennett provided the highlight goal of the night, if only for a few minutes, as he tied the game at 4-4 late in the third period. Dallas took a stupid penalty (it was nice to not see the Flames do that for once in this game) and the Flames made the Stars pay. Bennett parked himself out front and battled, but when the puck came his way he was in the right spot. Bennett’s stick redirected the puck past a struggling Ben Bishop and Calgary got the tying goal on the PP.

Bennett has this thing when it comes to the playoffs. He is mostly invisible for the regular season, but something with him and the playoffs just clicks. His goal tonight gives him 9 goals in 26 career playoff games to go with 6 assists.
