Bennett' Panthers a Game-Time Call
Sam Bennett (upper body) will be re-evaluated ahead of Tuesday's clash with the Blues, reports Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official website. Bennett told reporters he feels good, so all signs point to the center avoiding an injury layoff. In his last 10 contests, the Ontario native has 4 goals and 4 assists, including three power play points. If Bennett can play, he should play in a six-man role on the power play.
Binnington featured in the previous game
Jordan Binnington Made 29 of 30 shots in a 2-1 win over the Hurricanes on Saturday. Binnington allowed a power-play goal at the 13:17 mark in the first period on Tovo Travainen's dunk, but then managed just one point on five shots to get the win. Binnington has been hot lately, scoring just one goal in each of his last two games. Even though he's been splitting time with Joel Hofer lately, Bennington could get more starts if he plays like this.
