"Just a bunch of grown men being donkeys out there," the Stars captain told reporters postgame, according to NHL.com's Mike Zeisberger.
"I was just reaching to prevent him from playing, and he’s a big guy, he’s 6-6," Perron said postgame, according to The Athletic's Jeremy Rutherford.
Before the teams skated off for the second intermission, Benn exchanged words with Blues netminder Jordan Binnington, who took a swing at him and then hacked Bishop on his way off.
Bishop didn't have much to say about it afterward.
Blues head coach Craig Berube wasn't pleased with Benn going after Binnington.
"Heck, I don’t know what Jamie Benn's doing skating down there and he's getting in Binner's face," Berube said, according to the Dallas Morning News' Matthew DeFranks. "He's just reacting a little bit to it. He’s a competitor.”
Binnington was assessed roughing and slashing minors as a result, and Benn was handed an unsportsmanlike conduct minor.
