Look for Jordie Benn to make his 2016 postseason debut in Game 3 against Minnesota on Monday.

Benn will get into the lineup because Kris Russell is out with an illness. "Jordie, for most of the year, has been in one of those top six [spots]," head coach Lindy Ruff said. "Obviously [it's] tough to sit outside because even the last couple of games [during the regular season] he played really well for us. It's an opportunity for him to step back in and be a difference maker for us."

it's a bit surprising that Stephen Johns will continue to see time in place of Benn, but then again, the Stars did win their division so coach Lindy Ruff dererves a bit of leeway in this decision. Through 64 games this season he's posted 12 points with 90 hits and 94 blocks. Not too shabby.
