DALLAS -- It's fight night at AAC. Jamie Benn and Erik Johnson dropped the gloves, in a battle of Canada vs. the U.S.
Benn got into a fight in preseason, but this was his first fight in a regular season game. And he finished it off nicely. Johnson was busy trying to get some of his equipment off to get a better shot at Benn and Benn took advantage, getting two hard punches to the face as both players then fell down to end the fight.
Benn got some big cheers and you could see that Steve Ott was impressed.
We'll see if that gives the Stars any momentum. They are down 1-0 with 5:55 in the first period.
