Benn has two goals and five helpers in seven postseason contests. He's also managed 17 hits and 23 shots on goal in that span. Benn is expected to carry the offense for the Stars, and so far, his line with Tyler Seguin and Alexander Radulov has done well to meet that objective.
Benn had three assists in a 5-3 Game 5 win over Nashville on Saturday afternoon.
Benn is coming off his worst offensive full season since his sophomore year (2010-11). But that is all behind him right now. Benn has six points, including five assists, and has been dominant in five games against Nashville. In fact, his head coach Jim Montgomery has called the Benn - Tyler Seguin - Alexander Radulov line the Legion of Doom. That's heady praise for the trio and Montgomery would know -- he was a teammate of the original Legion of Doom in Philly. That's Eric Lindros, John LeClair and Mikael Renberg. Wow. Benn has really elevated his game this postseason and will lead the Stars to whatever height they climb. They head back to Dallas for Game 6 with a chance to move on.

Benn (rest) will play in Saturday's game versus the Wild, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Benn sat out of Friday's game versus the Blackhawks for rest purposes, but he'll be re-inserted into the lineup for the season finale.

Benn's game has regressed this season, as his 52 points would be his lowest total since the 2010-11 campaign.
Benn (rest) won't play in Friday's road game against the Blackhawks, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
With a playoff spot locked up, head coach Jim Montgomery has elected to rest some of his key players. Benn hasn't been his usual dominant self this campaign, accumulating just 52 points in 77 games. He could suit up in Saturday's home contest against Minnesota, but for the time being, Valeri Nichushkin should draw into the lineup in Benn's stead.

Benn scored a goal and added an assist in Thursday's 4-0 win over the Avalanche.
Dallas' captain tallied the primary helper on Alex Radulov's first of three goals on the evening. Benn then found the back of the net with his 25th of the season 5:19 into the third period. The 29-year-old is up to 46 points in 64 games, averaging just 0.33 points per game, the worst mark since his 2009-10 rookie campaign.
Benn (upper body) produced a hat trick in his return from an injury, a 4-2 win over the Blues on Saturday.
Benn clearly felt the need to make up for lost time with the trio of tallies in this contest. He has 24 goals and 44 points in 62 games this season after missing two contests with the ailment. Benn added three hits and three shots Saturday, and while his point production has dipped from his usual standard, he remains a dangerous scoring threat.
Benn (upper body) will return Saturday for a game against the Blues, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
Heika said Benn "feels great," so we fully expect him to reprise his role within the top six and No. 1 power-play unit against St. Louis. Assuming the projected line assignments hold true, Benn will form the second line with rookie Joel L'Esperence and Jason Spezza.
Benn (upper body) will not be in the lineup versus Los Angeles on Thursday, Matthew DeFranks of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Benn will miss his second game due to his upper-body issue, which will afford Joel L'Esperance another opportunity to play in the NHL. The center is poised to miss the 65-point mark for the first time since the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign. His numbers have been especially bad on the power play, where Benn has managed a mere seven goals and two helpers, despite averaging 2:34 of ice time with the man advantage.
Benn (upper body) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Kings, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.
The team previously sounded a bit more optimistic about Benn's chances of returning for the next game, but the power forward's official status apparently won't be known until Thursday morning at the earliest. Benn is a career 0.88 points-per-game player, so you won't want to miss out on his elite production when he's healthy.
Benn (upper body) will not play Tuesday, though he's in line to return against the Kings in two days, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
Benn is still recovering from an injury that he sustained in Sunday's game against the Chicago. It's been a trying year for the B.C. native, as he's dealt with upper-body issues, and in late December, Benn faced harsh criticism from the Stars' ownership and management team concerning his lack of production. The captain now has 21 goals and 20 assists through 61 games, but that's still not elite-level production in a year where scoring is up across the board.
Benn (upper body) is considered doubtful to play Tuesday against the Golden Knights, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
"Doubtful" doesn't definitely mean he's out, but it sounds incredibly unlikely that Benn will be able to give it a go. As such, you should make plans to be without him, as the Stars surely are. Even in a somewhat disappointing season, the 29-year-old has notched 21 goals in 61 games, and the Stars don't have the depth to replace him. That's especially true given that new addition Mats Zuccarello (upper body) is already out for four weeks.
Benn suffered an upper-body injury and won't to return to Sunday's contest against Chicago, Sean Shapiro of The Athletic reports.
The 29-year-old suffered the injury early in the first period, and is now officially out for the game. The severity of the injury is unclear, so expect an official word from the team post-game. With Benn out, Radek Faksa appears to have taken his spot on the second line and the power play.
Benn scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 5-2 win over St. Louis.
Benn had gone nine games without a goal before Thursday's performance.

Benn dished out two assists -- one on the power play -- in Monday's win over the Coyotes.
Benn has been relatively cold since the calendar flipped to 2019 with just four points in 11 games. He waited until the third period to get revved up in this one, adding a secondary assist on John Klingberg's power-play goal and feeding a perfect pass to Tyler Seguin for the game-winning tally. This is Benn's first multi-point game since Dec. 20 and his eighth of the year.
Benn scored his 19th goal of the season in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Sabres.
The 29-year-old has endured a sluggish January, scoring three goals and four points in nine games, but he was still playing with plenty of energy Wednesday, firing six shots and laying four hits with a plus-1 rating. Benn needs just one more goal to record his sixth straight season with 20. Benn's 35 points through 49 games puts him on pace for his lowest scoring total in a full season since 2010-11, but he still has plenty of time to put together a more productive second half.
