Jamie Benn scored two goals and an assist during Monday's 4-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes. The 32-year-old had gone five straight games without collecting a single point. Benn actually did all of his damage in the third frame, as he scored two goals in the final five minutes and he registered a helper on Jacob Peterson's tally earlier in the frame. He finished the night with a plus-2 rating, four shots on goal and two hits in 19:32 of ice time. He now has seven goals and five assists in 22 games this season. Benn is still a big name, but his best days are clearly behind him.
