Other Penalties: Cole received a major and game misconduct for charging; Bennett a minor and misconduct for instigating a fight.
Bennet has heart
Damn, Sam...........nicely done.
Anyone talking about trading Bennett- give your head a shake
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......
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.
And the fans like what Bennett does. Sam I am.
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
Cole = less than smart
LoL. Bennett Punched helmet! With gusto, Cole lands a couple nice early. Jankowski should not taken that pass!!!!!
A hard hit by Cole is answered immediately by Bennett who ultimately turned the game around. All Bennett & 6
Definitely entertaining. Honorable fight.
I loved the zero hesitation by Bennett
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
Tital domination by Bennet.
Bennett fights are always great, kid has heart.
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.
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?
Bennett taking up for his teammate. Clean shot to start it. Cole never got off.
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.
Clean hit but thats one of those hits where a player should stick up for his teammate. Bennett and a 6
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.
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.
Bennett showed some balls in this one. Nice to see players fired up and Cole answered the bell. A good fight edge to Bennett.
BigMike nails it... as does everyone else reviewing... including Cole via the hit and Bennett via the distinct lack of hesitation
Win by Bennet!
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
Suicide pass leads to the destruction of Jankowski. Bennett addresses the hit and puts a little beat down on Cole. Win Bennett.
