Jamie Benn picks up Gordie Howe hat trick vs. Jackets
Dallas is still searching for its first win and while that might not come tonight, Jamie Benn has been doing everything he can to try and make that happen. Through two periods in tonight’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, Benn already has a Gordie Howe hat trick (a goal, assist, and fight).
Benn and Tyler Seguin got the Stars off on the right foot when the latter redirected the former’s shot to beat goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky:
Less than three minutes later, Benn extended the Stars’ lead to two with a sweet goal courtesy of a top-shelf shot:
Ryan Johansen found the back of the net twice in the second though to erase the Stars’ lead. With the second frame on the brink of expiring and the game still tied, Benn tried to regain some lost momentum by sparring with Nick Foligno.
It was Benn’s 10th career regular season fight, according to HockeyFights.
