Thanks to an impressive, and perhaps game stealing, performance by goaltender Kari Lehtonen, as well a pair of goals from Alex Goligoski and Jamie Benn, the Dallas Stars managed to hold on for a 2-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks on Friday night.

The highlight of the game wasn't any of the 37 saves Lehtonen made, or either goal, but instead this crushing check from Benn on Blackhawks defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson early in the third period that ended up shattering some glass in the corner.



That's just a great, clean hit by Benn. And fortunately it appeared neither player, or any of the Dallas Stars ice girls hanging out in the tunnel, were injured by the flying glass. Good news all around.

Benn will be a star in this league some day." Joke's on him, he is already a star...a Dallas Star!
That's funny, I remember Foley saying that too, I didn't put it together though.   I hope somebody gives him some grief for it.

...and not sure if you picked up on Foley's comment regarding Benn Bob. He said something like "Benn will be a star in this league some day." Joke's on him, he is already a star...a Dallas Star!

The official scorers seemed a bit liberal with the hit counts on the Dallas side in my humble opinion. Aside from that, it was a good game, Lehtonen stole one from the Hawks. Best part of the Benn hit was the reaction of the Stars' ice girls. Lucky the glass didn't come straight down on their toes!

Jamie Benn breaks glass with check

Plenty of good, big hits in the game with elbows down and contact kept with the center of the body.   A few plays down the boards racing towards the puck saw some of the players let up a little bit because of the obvious danger.    Much few pushes and hits from behind than when they played last year in March.     Ott took plenty of runs at people but kept it clean.   I hope Cherry and MIlbury watched, I think it was the type of game they were hoping for, and yes a few people were knocked over, Bickell had a couple nice hits including a monster one in the first.
