Stars Jamie Benn Kicked Out of Game 3, Suspension Coming

The Dallas Stars will likely be playing the rest of the Stanley Cup Playoffs without forward Jamie Benn after Benn was ejected for a brutal cross check in Game 3. 

The Stars captain was assessed a five-minute major and a game misconduct after delivering a nasty cross check to the head of Vegas Golden Knights forward Mark Stone. Stone was lucky to come away unharmed as he stayed in the game, one in which the Golden Knights won. 

The play happened in the first two minutes of the game, after Vegas opened the scoring early on. Benn refused to speak to the media after the game and now has a hearing with the NHL's department of player safety. Look for a multi-game suspension to come, even though the Stars are down 3-0 and could be bounced in Game 4 on Thursday.

Here's the play, you be the judge:
