Benning dished out two assists in Thursday's Game 5 win over San Jose.

Benning was Edmonton's second surprise difference maker on a night that saw David Desharnais pot the overtime winner. The 22-year-old blueliner came in with just two points in his previous 14 games combined and hadn't recorded a multi-point effort since Nov. 5, so don't get too excited. After all, Benning wasn't a particularly productive scorer in college hockey or this year's rookie campaign.
