I would've thought that.

I didn't catch it in real time.

You could see Jamie Benn grit his teeth right before. Something triggered him and he had a meltdown. Just lost it. Maybe Stone made fun of his mouth breathing.
People legitimately had no idea because Benn was far away from the puck. I checked Twitter and saw a clip, and was immediately fine with everything.

I just assume whenever someone scores a goal then taunts the other team that someone on the other team said something or did something untoward, and instead of Benning out, the player scored and rubbed it in.

The first shift Dallas was pushing hard, hitting, they came out strong. But once Vegas got the puck, it was clear which team had control, so Benn was mad that Vegas was better despite a strong push on the first shift. I know that's reading a lot into a few minutes, but that's what I saw.

Seguin is a guy who does all of the right things now. It's such a shame what the injuries have robbed from him because he's just a dude out there now.

I think that's a fair assessment. When asked during the period breaks about the Benn penalty, Carrier and Hague didn't make a big deal of it, saying that benn just wanted to give his team some energy but it had just turned bad. Moreover, Vegas' players were anticipating and expecting Benn would try to act in such way.

This may be stupid but I have to wonder whether all that cryogenic therapy Seguin does is slowing him down too.

There's a song called mouthbreather that's about a real life dude who made a terrible decision while house sitting, and is a real life mouth breather.

"Don't get me wrong, He's a nice guy, I like him just fine, but he's a mouth breather."

I was at the game and had to pull it up on Twitter as well. In real time from my seats, thought it was probably a cross check, but couldn't understand the 5 and game misconduct. Seeing the replay definitely cleared things up.

Isn't in the NBA where you can get a $5-billion fine if you default a postgame press conference ?

I am actually a little glad that Benn skipped out. That would somehow be an even bigger *poo poo* show.

Sadly, they do show replay of penalties that are called against the opposition. It's stupid not to show replays of them all.
I also went to twitter several times just to understand what was going on.
However, despite feeling totally disappointed in the teams seemingly early sense of "give up", Benn's stupidity and the lack of understanding on some of the calls, the fans behavior was truly embarrassing. I was with a friend from high school who was visiting from Las Vegas, it was not a moment to be proud of.

I still can't help but feel some sort of penalty should've been assessed to Stone for putting his head under Benn's landing point.

Did the ticket not do low energy Jamie Benn at 8:40 this morning?

They did. Gordo did it.

Bob's fake Benn is much better because he captures the words trailing off as he runs out of breath cadence.

They showed video on ESPN of Stars fans throwing popcorn at and actually hitting both Hill and another Vegas player as they stepped onto the ice from the dressing room.

Absolutely inexcusable, this behavior is.

I agree, Yoda.

Yesterday may have been the darkest day in Stars history, unless the fans can maybe top it tomorrow?

The second one was Carrier and I'm convinced it was a deliberate anti-french Québec bashing act from Pierre-Elliott Trudeau nostalgic western Montrealers.
