Benn: Stars power play 'was sh--' in loss to Lightning
Warning: Story contains coarse language
Jamie Benn didn't hold back when he was asked to explain what happened in a 2-0 defeat at the hands of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night.
"I thought we played a pretty good game against a good team," the Dallas Stars captain told reporters, including The Athletic's Saad Yousuf, postgame, before adding, "Our power play was shit and that was the difference."
The Stars went 0-for-6 and mustered only 10 shots on goal with the man advantage in the game.
They failed to convert on a four-minute power play in the second period when Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman was assessed minor penalties for holding and unsportsmanlike conduct.
