The Stars official stance on Jamie Benn is that he will be “re-assessed” on Sunday after a hard hit by Phoenix’s Martin Hanzal in the final two minutes of Dallas’ 2-1 loss to the Coyotes Saturday. They are not listing any injury at this time.

While the Stars won’t say it, they definitely are concerned about a potential concussion for Benn.

No penalty on this hit.  Was it late, from the blindside, headshot?

Kings Not Happy With Goal Call

from Rich Hammond at Kings.com,

Irate after a video review failed to overturn a second-period goal by the Phoenix Coyotes, Kings general manager Dean Lombardi and coach Terry Murray publicly called out the NHL review crew in Toronto after the Kings’ 2-0 loss to the Coyotes.

The disputed play took place 8:48 into the second period of a then-scoreless game. Phoenix’s Martin Hanzal, stationed in front the net, lifted his stick and knocked the puck out of the air and past Kings goalie Jonathan Quick.

On-ice officials immediately called it a good goal, and after a video review of more than five minutes, the crew in Toronto, led by Mike Murphy, the NHL’s senior vice president of hockey operations, ruled that the goal would stand.

“When the guy in Toronto making the decisions on the goals, in Ottawa and the one tonight, wanted the G.M.‘s job in L.A. and was not happy about not getting it, you have to assume you are going to get those type of calls,’’ Lombardi said. “However, we have put ourselves in a position where these calls have a monumental effect on our season, and we’re going to have to find a way out of it ourselves.’‘

continued

I saw the goal live and honestly, I felt whatever was ruled on the ice is the way Toronto would see it, it was that close.  You can watch the goal in real-time and slow motion below…
