Benn went scoreless for the second straight game Tuesday in a 3-0 loss to New Jersey. Dallas' first trip into the Eastern Time Zone didn't go well at all, as the normally high-octane stars were held to just one goal in 120 minutes against Ottawa and New Jersey. Part of that was because neither Benn nor the rest of the Stars' scorers were getting much to the net Tuesday, as Dallas only put 24 shots on goal. Benn and his teammates are much better than they showed in Newark, and he'll likely get back to form Friday when Minnesota visits the Stars.
Benn picked up two points -- a goal and an assist -- in Saturday's 5-3 win over Anaheim. Benn has scored in each of the Stars' four games this season. He has four goals and four assists in that span. Benn is one of the league's best left wingers and must be active in every lineup.
Benn scored a power-play goal and fired three shots on net in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Maple Leafs. Benn was in front of the crease when he received a pass from Alexander Radulov and knocked it home to bring the game to 5-3 late in the third period. Benn now has three goals and six points through three games as he looks to get back to the 80-point range, which has eluded him the last two seasons.
Benn scored two goals and an assist in Saturday's 5-1 victory over Winnipeg. Benn tallied all of his points on the power play. He already has five points (two goals, three assists) in two games this season. Benn should equal and maybe even best his 79 points (82 games) of last season.
Benn dished out a pair of helpers in Thursday's 3-0 win over Arizona. Benn's no stranger to multi-point outings, having finished with 79 points or more in four of the past five campaigns. He assisted on goals by linemate Alexander Radulov and skilled defenseman John Klingberg -- two guys who are primed to return the favor quite often for the four-time 30-goal scorer as the season unfolds.
