Bennet has heart

Damn, Sam...........nicely done.

Anyone talking about trading Bennett- give your head a shake

Posted by Humper on November 02, 2018 at 08:17 AM

Finally an instance where the attempt at retribution is not a complete failure. Bennett wins, but not by a lot in what is hardly a great fight (but entertaining just the same).

@Reeferman - good call, I saw the same couldn't believe it - it was Wayne (Mike Myers) from Wayne's world - 43 seconds in, and considering Holloween was the night before - that' his actual look. Edge Bennett, nice answer for the open ice hit on the teammate.

Hanifan should get a penalty for passing to Ski and setting him up for the hit. 2 minutes for stupid pass when he could have carried the puck further himself. Bennett was energetic, all flapping arms and dramatic show of loyalty but no landed punches really of note. yea for him, but not a fight. Cole gave him the best punch right at the go and dinged up his beak. Cole wins. Not a charging penalty either.

Not sure why this warrants a score of 6 Bennett does land a few and enough for the win Kudos for jumping in ....I scored this a 4......

Posted by GreatMurray on November 02, 2018 at 10:15 AM

Wonder of wonders...a guy steps up for his mate and fights and wins. Bennett makes short work of Cole who gets a questionable gamer to boot.

Posted by Orr Fourever on November 02, 2018 at 08:41 AM

And the fans like what Bennett does. Sam I am.

Posted by dogginit on November 02, 2018 at 10:28 PM

All Bennett in this and good on him for sticking up for a questionable hit by Cole. Bottom line is Bennett can fight but he shouldn't be,, get Prout or Pelluso in the line up, most of this wouldn't have even happened. Are they waiting until Johnny Hockey gets the concussion thats comming for him ...???.

Nice to see “ Mike Myers’ “ doppelgänger in the house and enjoying the festivities.............43 secs in if you missed it Classic

so much emotions.. loved it! 5/10 - Bennet - Domination

Posted by basilrathbone on November 02, 2018 at 09:04 PM

Cole = less than smart

Posted by heffenator on November 14, 2018 at 02:03 PM

LoL. Bennett Punched helmet! With gusto, Cole lands a couple nice early. Jankowski should not taken that pass!!!!!

Posted by EK65 on November 03, 2018 at 12:46 AM

A hard hit by Cole is answered immediately by Bennett who ultimately turned the game around. All Bennett & 6

Posted by ChirpMachine on November 06, 2018 at 03:33 PM

Definitely entertaining. Honorable fight.

Posted by cardiffgiant on November 02, 2018 at 12:25 PM

I loved the zero hesitation by Bennett

Posted by hockeyman2019 on November 03, 2018 at 12:04 AM

Okay, first of all how/why did Cole get a major/misconduct on that hit? second I'll give props to Bennett for awensering the bell there

Posted by War on November 17, 2018 at 11:43 PM

Tital domination by Bennet.

Posted by yeah on November 03, 2018 at 05:50 PM

Bennett fights are always great, kid has heart.

Posted by JtAtl on November 07, 2018 at 08:58 PM

I give Cole's helmet a 7 for the imprints of Bennett's knuckles but Bennett gets -1.5 for ability to neutralize the enemy.

Posted by Oswegofightfan on November 02, 2018 at 05:16 PM

So I have two questions, who kicks Hanifin s ass for the pass. I bet he gets a good talking to in the locker room. 2 how the hell is that a penalty?

Posted by BrandoReady on November 02, 2018 at 02:45 AM

Bennett taking up for his teammate. Clean shot to start it. Cole never got off.

Posted by claire alexande on November 02, 2018 at 12:50 PM

It was a charge and needed to be answered. Bennett thumped Cole and changed the momentum of the game. And that says as much about the Avalanche as it does anything else. Also, Hanifin owes Jankowski a new head.

Posted by Mounty in NC on November 03, 2018 at 03:13 AM

Clean hit but thats one of those hits where a player should stick up for his teammate. Bennett and a 6

Posted by ChuckinKnuckles on November 05, 2018 at 05:35 PM

Bennett pretty much opens up a can of good ol whoop ass on Cole who should have been better prepared after a cheap-ass hit.

Posted by Biggus on November 02, 2018 at 07:09 AM

Bennet shows us the right way to make someone answer for a percieved injustice. I did not see the hit as charging, just a good open ice hit on a guy not looking where he was going.

Posted by Ethereal on November 02, 2018 at 08:01 AM

Bennett showed some balls in this one. Nice to see players fired up and Cole answered the bell. A good fight edge to Bennett.

Posted by CJ on March 31, 2023 at 06:32 AM

Good fight

Posted by Behn Wilson on November 03, 2018 at 03:07 AM

BigMike nails it... as does everyone else reviewing... including Cole via the hit and Bennett via the distinct lack of hesitation

Posted by rocky 1 on November 04, 2018 at 01:14 AM

Win by Bennet!

Posted by nait on November 02, 2018 at 12:34 PM

I don’t know about the majors but good on Bennett to step up for a teammate. Also anyone voting for Cole needs to get their head checked. He didn’t throw a single punch

Posted by bigmike53 on November 02, 2018 at 03:07 PM

Suicide pass leads to the destruction of Jankowski. Bennett addresses the hit and puts a little beat down on Cole. Win Bennett.
