I meant for this season...they lose game two and he will be golfing in a week

Tampa is not losing 4 of 6 IMO

You should've seen the stuff that got 0 minutes in that game.

Not necessarily offensive zone penalties

He has had some borderline hits but nothing this bad, I wouldn't say he is dirty but this hit obviously was. Probably one of the worst hits of the season if we are being honest.


Sam better hope his team pulls it off without him or the legend of playoff Sam Bennett could be ending soon. Game two is basically their season IMO
Did he throw a tantrum after the goal got waved off or something? He didn't push Vasilevskiy into the net, he pushed him laterally about 6 inches. The right call was made, but if the call on the ice was a goal, I'm not 100% sure it gets overturned. He didn't do anything ridiculous.

Yes, it was a bad hit, just like the several others that also earned suspensions (and several more that should have, but didn't). I doubt it's in the top 3 this year, though (though I can't recall any of the top of my head).

Bennett will manage to get a point even while he is suspended. The legend grows...

Why are you getting so defensive? I said he wasn't a dirty player but it was a dirty hit. He crossed half the ice surface to hit a guy in the numbers there is a reason you can't think of any worse hits lol. It was also an obvious non goal...his stick flexed pushing the goalies pad into the net before scoring in the empty space. He had a look of shock it was called off when it was text book no goal. (Called it classic SB because I have seen it before, just a joke considering he probably has more disallowed NHL goals than legit ones)

People that rail on the flames non stop are now the biggest Sam Bennett apologists and its pretty telling...Park your bias, the guy had a terrible game and hurt his team. Like I said he better hope they win game 2 without him or their great season will end up being one and done.

This hit is awful. Coleman is fighting for puck along the boards and distracted by another player. Bennett comes in full speed and hits him from behind head first into the boards. Also looks like Bennett jumps into the hit a bit...totally unnecessary.

Not sure why all these things can't be true
- Sam played a good overall game, generating chances and putting up another 2 points
- He also took an incredibly bad penalty at an incredibly bad time that changed the complexion of the game
- The penalty also now has an additional cost of him not being available for a crucial 2nd game.

Doesn't mean he is a bad player now. But in a short series, it can come down to a few moments, and his penalty was one of the defining moments of game 1.

What a fantastic game. Florida was fast, played with a lot of skill and grit. That play by Huberdeau for the 4-3 goal was just nasty.
I'm looking forward to watching the rest of this series.
Poor penalty by Bennett for sure, but he played a pretty solid game.

^^^^ Yes, absolutely. I'll take 6 more games like that please.

The intensity exceeded anything we saw in the bubble last year.
