Since this one is totally wrapped up and impossible to lose, I’m hitting record and heading out to dinner.

All we need is that 6th goal, and then we can finally relax sit back and win 6-5 LOL.

That game did not actually suck at all.

Wedgewood seems to be hanging in there longer with more frequent starts.

Jack Campbell must be having mental issues again if he’s giving up hat tricks to players as washed up as Benn

Well two of them were basically empty net tap ins because of Robertson's slickness and one was from the easiest spot to score from on the ice.

This is why he didn't even get the #1 star.

Damnit, I completely forgot there was a game today/tonight.

Good thing though, but did I really really see a Benn hat-trick? I mean a real one, without any disallowed goal or leadership penalty?

Is it a real hat trick when you're shooting on Jack Campbell?

Benn has actually been a pretty solid third liner but I don't want jinx it much by talking about it a lot

He’s also getting the least amount of ice time of any season in his career. Even as a rookie, he was playing more. He’s averaging 10:17 of even strength time. He’s been up around 14 a night in recent seasons.

DeBoer seems to have figured out you get more out of a guy like Benn by playing him less.

Distributing his maintenance time across minutes instead of games or weeks or months or years increases the probability of him accidentally being productive in any given game. Perhaps this Deboer guy is a genius?
